"'This book gives you advice on behaviour management that is easily accessible and equally easy to apply. After all, how many of us, snowed under with reports to write and lessons to plan, have time to wade through endless theory? This book provides plenty of information on the basic of behaviour management, lots of tips for controlling your classes, and ideas for managing the physical aspects of the classroom environment. The ideas and advice given are based on common sense observations and strategies that have worked for me. I hope you find this book a useful reference source for your everyday teaching, one that you can turn to for ideas when you need them or to find alternative strategies for dealing with the management of your own class or classes.' --Sue Cowley
From the Author
Tearing Your Hair Out?
In floods of tears in the staffroom? If you are, I know exactly how you feel, because I've been there too. And that's why I wrote this book. With 5 years of teaching experience, I realised that I had a lot of tips and advice that might help those teachers experiencing difficulties with 'getting the buggers to behave'.
There's no theory in my book. Just lots of ideas about what you might do to help you survive in the classroom. Why not try it and see? And just to whet your appetite further, here's a little of what Tim Brighouse said about my book in his TES review:
"This book is rich and realistic: rich in the array of strategies and examples that work, and realistic in that it is based on vivid examples of how youngsters misbehave."
