Comprehensive Classroom Management helps K to 12 teachers understand and apply the principles of effective classroom management in their own classrooms. It offers the background, practical advice and real-life examples you need to understand how to apply the principles of classroom management in your own classroom situation. The emphasis is on creating safe, supportive classroom environments where students are motivated to learn, and where classroom behavior standards have been developed with and agreed upon by students. Through detailed case studies, examples and descriptions of specific strategies, the text also examines instructional methods that support high rates of student engagement.

The 13th Edition is updated throughout with new methods, research and techniques that can support diverse learners in today’s classrooms.
