Lack of discipline is a top problem facing schools, according to annual Gallup Polls, and thousands of teachers quit each year, citing student discipline as the reason. This newly updated fix-it manual by an award-winning educator and classroom management coach targets student disruptions and teaching inefficiencies that eat up instruction time. This realistic reference helps teachers solve behavior and classroom management problems on the spot, so time is spent educating rather than disciplining. Teachers learn how to deal with behavior issues so that discipline is immediate, the problem ends without paperwork or conferences, and the lesson continues. Written primarily for those teaching in grades 6-12, "Ultimate Classroom Management Handbook" provides succinct, specific answers—plus backup plans—to the discipline problems and classroom management issues that plague all teachers.
