This is an excellent book that I have used successfully with dozens of teachers and student teachers. I highly recommend it. I believe the previous reviewer, by his own admission, did not give the book a real chance, instead skimming and misinterpreting it as about just accommodating bad behavior. Not true. It's a book that provides a refreshing, encouraging perspective on leading a well-managed classroom, with excellent specific advice and strategies. The best books I know on this subject are: this book, the subject of this review; an older book called Teacher Effectiveness Training by Dr. Thomas Gordon; and Time to Teach, by Rick Dahlgren, which is most readily available through trainers around the country who teach that program.

I have only read half of the book because I am taking an online course, and this is the text. I came here to see if others would agree with me, but there are no other reviews. This book, while it has some good points, actually explains how you should negotiate with students when they don't agree with you, how it's always okay to turn in a late assignment and how to handle a student when you tell them to do something, and they don't want to. (The answer is to let them tell you later what they think their consequence should be) I am having a hard time with this text, and would not recommend it for elementary teachers.
