For introductory courses in classroom management that focus on middle- and/or secondary settings.
A clear and practical guide for establishing and maintaining a comprehensive classroom management system in today's middle- and high-school classrooms.
Written for the prospective or new teacher, Classroom Management for Middle and High School Teachers, Ninth Edition, provides teachers with the skills, approaches, and strategies necessary to establish effective management systems in middle- and high-school classrooms. Based on 30 years of research and experience in more than 500 classrooms, the authors provide details on how to plan, develop, and implement a classroom management system that helps create a classroom environment that facilitates and focuses on learning. Examples, checklists, case study vignettes, and group activities illustrate key concepts and make the content concrete, allowing readers to reflect on and apply the content to real-life settings.
Provides a wealth of guiding principles and strategies and step-by-step guidelines that cover all aspects of management from arranging the physical space of the classroom through planning and conducting instruction and through managing behavior problems (e.g., see "Five keys to Good Room Arrangement" at the very beginning of Chapter 2).
End-of-chapter checklists in most of the chapters summarizes key guidelines for practice and translate concepts into usable plans (e.g., the end of Chapters 3, 4, 5, 7).
Case studies throughout the text illustrate key ideas and to make the book content concrete. These vignettes show how good and poor practices can compound in their effects over time and provide opportunities for dynamic analysis (e.g., see the two vignettes near the beginning of Chapter 1 and the case studies at the end of Chapter 3).
A focus on middle-school and high-school classrooms provides those who are teaching or will teach at the middle- and high-school levels with content that fits these environments. All examples, checklists, case studies, vignettes, and group activities are designed for the secondary level.
The ninth edition of this best-selling text updates the content to reflect today’s diverse, technological classroom and provides new opportunities for readers to interact with the course material, including new case studies, vignettes, and response prompts. Activities for each chapter are also provided, with an appendix of potential responses.
