Product Description

Review

Praise for previous editions:


'He is consciously reflective of day-to-day classroom experiences and this 'in touch with' dimension in his writings gives him credibility and encourages his readers to develop their own practice' - Mike O'Connor, The Psychology of Education Review, Vol. 27, No. 2, pp.44-45


'He presents with vivid authenticity - his stories are always a potent cocktail of pain and humour - tales of classroom and school challenge with which any practicing teacher immediately identifies' - Professor Sir Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement


'Bill Rogers has inspired a generation of teachers through his books and lectures. He has the gift of credibility, talking to real teachers about real classrooms, and never patronising us' - Geoff Barton, Times Educational Supplement

Format: Paperback
I moved over, asked him how his work was going, and, before parting, quietly said: "The bin's over there" (gesturing with my eyes to the bin). He smiled, walked over to the bin, and spat out his chewing gum.

That's what happened when I put Bill Rodger's specific guidance to common classroom problems into practice: it worked! In the past I used to take a more aggressive manner, sticking a foul-smelling bin under the nose of any child which chew in my class--this inevitably disrupted the flow of the lesson for the whole class as they protested at the unfairness.

This book is explicit in describing what to communicate (verbally and through body language) in managing a class, and breaks down the "firm but fair" approach into its core-components. It's easy to read, and the messages black-and-white. He adds real-life teaching stories which not only put his guidance into a classroom perspective, but make for amusing reading!

I wish I had read this book before my PGCE, rather than at the end.

Format: Paperback
I work in quite a challenging school. During my first 2 years of training I really did question whether teaching was for me. I had bought similar books (getting buggers to behave, etc) but was not overly inspired. However, a friend had mentioned the author and claimed he was fantastic. I bought the book not really expecting much. However, each of his suggestions and explanations were so brilliant and easy that I couldn't wait to try them out. I'm in my 5th year of teaching and I still refer to the book. I have passed the book around my department and we all use the basic strategies. If you buy one book on teaching, get this one.

Format: Paperback
If my experience is anything to go by, providers of teacher training are for some reason very reluctant to give advice on managing behaviour in the classroom. This book filled a big hole in my training and gave me the basic tools to get to work on the behaviour issues in my classes.

I wouldn't take it as an instant recipe for success- pupils are all individuals and what works for one will not work for another. This is, however, an excellent place to start thinking about how you will develop and refine your management style. Readable, knowing, and funny, this is definitely one to keep coming back to.

32 of 35 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 30 Aug 2001
Format: Paperback
The book opens with a description of how the author failed at school and left after posting caricatures of the teachers on the school walls - as reported in the Daily Express. As a new teacher, having previously worked in supply, I wondered how I would possibly cope. This book was recommended by my headteacher and gives practical methods for handling classes, setting rules, discipling and more. The book details how to set class rules with a classroom meeting (or in circle time in Primary) and refers discipline problems back to these jointly developed rules. However this book really is a practical guide and is full of real examples of both bad and good teaching practice taken from both the author's own teaching experience and from working as a consultant. It realy is frightening to see what you have done wrong and what you should have done instead! If the contents of this book were taught in PGCE courses we wouldn't have anywhere near the bahavioural problems we see in schools today. If you a teacher - buy this book - especially if you are a NQT

Format: Paperback
Writen in a very simple style, it's too easy to dismiss the information contained here. Most unfortunate situations are covered and when one occurs in real life, it feels as if you've already been through it once and have a fair idea of what to do (or what not to do!)

Excellent real-life examples used, very readable and interesting. Much better than other books I have leafed through in the bookshops. Very clear and definitive advice given. Superb book.

22 of 25 people found the following review helpful By B. Gristwood on 9 July 2009
Format: Paperback
Right, i read cowley, hated it and thought there was no point to behaviour management books. However, i've started reading this and applying it to the classroom is really starting to work.

I now work as supply, where your rep in school has to be as a tough guy to get the work done. However, applying some of Bill's techniques has worked brilliantly. As another reviewer said, doing the "the bin is over there" trick work's fantastically and referring to the classroom as "our room" instead of "my classroom" gives the kids the ownership they deserve.

If you are going to buy Cowley's "getting the buggers to behave" forget it, buy this instead and make a difference.

Format: Paperback
Very practical advice that makes you think 'that happened to me' and gives you alternatives ways of looking at and dealing with those incredibly frustrating and, sometimes, upsetting moments in a classroom when behaviour is not what you would consider 'the norm' (or so we hope).
