Overview

This ISBN is for the MyLab access card. Pearson eText is included.

Practical advice and real-life examples help teachers understand and apply the principles of classroom management in their own classroom situations.
Comprehensive, based on the most current research, and supported through the examples of thousands of teachers already using these techniques, Comprehensive Classroom Management helps K-12 teachers implement effective classroom management methods. 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 12th Edition is updated throughout, including new material on supporting students who have experienced trauma, bullying, use of electronic devices, and new research and methods for creating teacher—student relationships that students view as caring and supportive.
