Effective Classroom Management. A Teacher's Guide.
Laslett, Robert; Smith, Colin
This book adopts a practical approach to classroom management by combining findings from research on effective schooling with knowledge accumulated through personal experience. Detailed advice is given on organizing lessons, promoting a positive atmosphere in classrooms, developing realistic expectations of pupil performance and making appropriate use of reward and punishment techniques. The second part of the book describes sources of teacher stress, teachers' best methods of coping with these, and appropriate ways of avoiding confrontations in the classroom or dealing with those that are inescapable.
