Middle and Secondary Classroom Management: Lessons from Research and Practice


Middle and Secondary Classroom Management: Lessons from Research and Practice Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By integrating the thinking and the actual management practices of four real secondary teachers into discussions of research-based management principles, this introductory text helps readers connect theories with actual results. Further, the text demonstrates how real teachers can adapt to any circumstance--physical room constraints, curriculum requirements, challenging behaviors--and still be successful.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at pre-service teachers, this introductory textbook uses the thinking and practice of five real middle and secondary teachers to illustrate what research has revealed about effective classroom management. Thirteen chapters address such topics as designing the physical environment, working with families, managing class discussions, and preventing and responding to violence. This is a revised edition of a volume published in 2003 under the title Secondary Classroom Management. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
