Principles of Classroom Management focuses on the teacher's role as a professional decision-maker. It is a practical decision-making model that prepares you to make effective decisions. These decisions help foster positive learning environments. The text doesn't focus on rewards and punishments. Rather, it provides an array of decision-making options. The options help you approach specific classroom management situations. Principles, theoretical perspectives and empirical findings provide a foundation for you to confidently address issues.

The 8th Edition puts increased emphasis on relationship building, culturally relevant pedagogy and more. The text includes updates to foundational and belief-based classroom intervention strategies.
