About This Book
What strategies are most effective in creating a well-managed classroom that supports the best possible teaching and learning? What rules and procedures should you establish, and what kinds of consequences are appropriate for those who break the rules? How can you foster positive relationships with even the most challenging students?
This companion volume to Classroom Management That Works helps teachers at all grade levels master the array of skills that lead to a productive learning environment. Through exercises, worksheets, case studies, and other materials, readers explore the seven essential facets of effective classroom management that Robert J. Marzano identified by analyzing more than 100 research studies. Discussion questions and self-assessments for each facet help readers examine their own practices and understanding, while also providing a framework for study teams using the book for professional development.
Teachers are the most important factor in student learning, and their success in managing their classrooms directly effects student success. A Handbook for Classroom Management That Works provides sound advice and real-world solutions to help create a classroom where learning and teaching can thrive.
