Classroom management is a topic of enduring concern for teachers, administrators, and the public. It consistently ranks as the first or second most serious educational problem in the eyes of the general public, and beginning teachers consistently rank it as their most pressing concern during their early teaching years. Management problems continue to be a major cause of teacher burnout and job dissatisfaction. Strangely, despite this enduring concern on the part of educators and the public, few researchers have chosen to focus on classroom management or to identify themselves with this critical field. The Handbook of Classroom Management has four primary goals: 1) to clarify the term classroom management; 2) to demonstrate to scholars and practitioners that there is a distinct body of knowledge that directly addresses teachers’ managerial tasks; 3) to bring together disparate lines of research and encourage conversations across different areas of inquiry; and 4) to promote a vigorous agenda for future research in this area. To this end, 47 chapters have been organized into 10 sections, each chapter written by a recognized expert in that area. Cutting across the sections and chapters are the following themes: *First, positive teacher-student relationships are seen as the very core of effective classroom management. *Second, classroom management is viewed as a social and moral curriculum. *Third, external reward and punishment strategies are not seen as optimal for promoting academic and social-emotional growth and self-regulated behavior. *Fourth, to create orderly, productive environments teachers must take into account student characteristics such as age, developmental level, race, ethnicity, cultural background, socioeconomic status, and ableness. Like other research handbooks, the Handbook of Classroom Management provides an indispensable reference volume for scholars, teacher educators, in-service practitioners, and the academic libraries serving these audiences. It is also appropriate for graduate courses wholly or partly devoted to the study of classroom management.

Secondary Classroom Management presents an introduction to classroom management in secondary schools. Written in a lively, engaging, conversational style, it combines what research has to say about effective classroom management with knowledge culled from practice. This text focuses on real decisions made by real teachers as they manage the complex environment of the secondary classroom. The text integrates the thinking and the actual management practices of four real secondary school teachers into discussions of research-based management principles. Readers come to "know" these teachers. We hear about the classes they teach and about the physical constraints of their rooms. We hear them reflect on their rules and routines and watch as they teach these rules and routines to students. We listen as they talk about motivating students and building community, and as they discuss appropriate ways to deal with misbehavior. Secondary Classroom Management is well-organized and more comprehensive than many classroom management texts, with chapters on building safer, more caring classrooms; working with families; using time effectively; motivation; working with troubled students; and violence prevention. It also addresses the managerial challenges involved in a variety of instructional formats, such as recitations, discussions, and groupwork.

Practical classroom management applications assure that beginning and experienced teachers of all grade levels and instructional settings develop the cultural and managerial competence to make daily classroom practice easier, effective, and culturally-inclusive. Through developing culturally-competence, teachers learn to manage classrooms with a culturally-inclusive mindset in both mainstream and non-mainstream classrooms alike. They learn from start to finish how to structure and manage a culturally-inclusive classroom—how to establish the governance principles, how to set up the structure for operating the classroom with sensitivity and caring, and how to prevent and address student misbehavior. Emphasis is on helping students become disciplined caring individuals, and on assuring fairness and due process in applying penalties for misbehavior.

This text offers practical information and vicarious practice for both beginning as well as veteran teachers to become more knowledgeable, skilled, and effective in their work. Through study, application of what has been studied, and the analysis and evaluation of the end result of this application, teachers who care to improve can improve. And, teachers who are already successful in their teaching can be even more successful. Effective teachers are active learners themselves. This text therefore provides a specific context and focus for this active learning in the areas of student motivation and classroom management which are considered critical for best practice in teaching in classrooms today. The book reviews appropriate strategies when responding to specific types of student misbehavior and also discusses zero tolerance policies, expulsion, teaching special students, addressing diversity, violence, school uniforms, and drug abuse as related to management and motivation. It is highlighted with supporting case study examples, question and activity sections by chapter, and a helpful glossary. Also provided is an overview of ten popular models for classroom management with the theorists associated with their development. By reading this book, teachers will get their students to achieve at high levels in demonstrating what they have learned through the application of the most important, intertwined areas of motivation and classroom management.

This user-friendly resource will help K–12 teachers become more effective classroom managers. Tracey Garrett provides a new perspective that has been well received by thousands of preservice, novice, and veteran teachers. Each chapter of the book concentrates on a key area (physical design, rules and routines, relationships, engaging instruction, and discipline) and focuses on the importance of that particular area in relation to a teacher’s overall classroom management plan. Examples of specific techniques and strategies are presented through three classroom teachers, each representing a different grade level. In addition, four students share their beliefs and experiences related to the different aspects of classroom management and provide unique insight into the lived experience of students in real classrooms in a variety of contexts, including urban and suburban schools. Effective Classroom Management is a concise guide designed to prevent problems that require active discipline before they arise. Book features include classroom examples, case studies, and study questions. There is also an app, Classroom Management Essentials, available from the iTunes store featuring videos of the author and other teachers discussing classroom management strategies and experiences addressed in the book. Tracey Garrett is a professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Rider University in New Jersey where she was recently awarded the university’s Distinguished Teaching Award. “In just over 100 pages, Tracey Garrett has captured the essence of classroom management. I am particularly impressed with her attention to the physical environment of the class, as well as the importance of human relationships in teaching. This book would be an excellent addition to any program in preservice or inservice teacher education.” —Anita Woolfolk Hoy, professor emerita, The Ohio State University “This practically minded book offers an important focus on prevention of classroom management problems. It is unique in its attention to student perspectives on why specific management strategies work and it offers examples of how teachers can use basic management principles across varied grade levels.” —Joan Walker, associate professor, School of Education, co-director, Pforzheimer Faculty Development Center, Pace University “In Effective Classroom Management, the author assembles key practices together with some often-forgotten management components in her messages to practitioners on developing relationships and on hearing student voice. Garrett understands that effective classroom management requires doing the work with people at the forefront of the process.” —Kay Brocato, associate professor, College of Education, Mississippi State University

Written in a lively, engaging, conversational style that teacher education students appreciate, Elementary Classroom Management combines what research has to say about effective classroom management with knowledge culled from practice. The text is scholarly and research-based, yet realistic and practical. The text shows how four masterful teachers (grades 1, 3, 4 and 5/6) in very different school settings create classrooms that are orderly and productive, yet humane and caring. By integrating into discussions of research-based management principles, both the thinking and the actual management practices of four real elementary teachers, readers come to "know" these teachers and their classrooms. We hear about the classes they teach and about the physical constraints of their rooms, hear them reflect on their rules and routines, and watch as they teach those rules and routines to students. We listen as they talk about motivating students and building community and as they discuss appropriate ways to deal with misbehavior.Well-organized and more comprehensive than many classroom management texts, Elementary Classroom Management includes chapters on building safer, more caring classrooms; working with families; using time effectively; motivation; working with troubled students and students with special needs; and violence prevention. It also addresses the managerial challenges involved in a variety of instructional formats, such as seatwork, recitations and discussions, and groupwork.The third edition features updated and expanded coverage. The revision stresses the need to build caring, supportive relationships with and among students. It responds to current concerns about students' alienation, isolation, apathy, and lack of motivation so that prospective and beginning teachers see that classroom management is not simply about rules, rewards, and consequences, but also about building connections with students and creating safer, more caring classrooms.

Studies indicate that teachers spend as much as half their time in the classroom organizing students for instruction, dealing with misbehaviour and handling individual problems. Researchers have also found that student behaviour and discipline are now the most serious concerns among American and Canadian educators. Authors Jack Martin, Jeff Sugarman and John McNamara want to help teachers take back control of the classroom. They provide the latest research and theories around effective classroom management, while challenging teachers to think critically about how to adapt these principles to the unique circumstances of their classrooms. Each chapter deals with a different approach to classroom management, including those based on interpersonal communication, principles of democratic interaction, group management, behaviour modification and cognitive psychology. The third edition of this classic text contains new material that considers the changing face of educational theory and practice in an increasingly diverse society.
