From reviews of the text:
“[Jones and Jones’ Comprehensive Classroom Management] offers many research and evidence based strategies for improving classroom behavior. I strongly encourage my students to save this text in their developing professional libraries because of the number of strategies available within it. Most of my students keep this book as a resource as they get their first jobs.” — David Halpern, Nazareth College
“I am excited about [this text] … [The authors] have illustrated in this book how different models can be used successfully to implement a good management plan. My students would be excited to use this book.” — Chris Hogan, University of Central Arkansas
“[T]he strength of the Jones text is that its presentation style requires teachers to reflect upon what they do in their classrooms and why; how they treat respond/react to their students. The theorist information sets the stage for reflection and makes them reconsider their actions.” — Becky Cox, The University of Tennessee at Martin
