Peter Hook came and spoke to us on INSET last year and went through many of the strategies used in this book. This is not an encyclopedia, or a long investigation into the reasons behind poor classroom behaviour, but it is a pcoket book -I keep mine in my classroom desk drawer - which is packed with simple, straightforward and practical advice. Excellent examples of the Language of Choice to use. Invaluable.

An excellent and extremely practical book that deals with the subtle issue of behaviour management. Peter Hook is an expert in this field and provides lots of useful advice to equip teachers with the right "tools" for the job. Recommended for anyone embarking on their teaching career.

The whole set of these pocketbooks are great. I liked this one as it offers great advice, in simple language. It gives you ready to use ideas and really makes you think about obtaining the positive out of many situations and so much of it from the language that we use. Some of the ideas are a little stomach turningly cheesy and seem exhausting when we are usually already tired, but on the whole a useful little book.

This is an incredibly helpful book, which has lots of common sense techniques for managing student behaviour in ways that are positive and non-confrontational. In fact, I liked this book so much that I made reference to it in the book I wrote, which can be found here: The Quick Guide to Classroom Management: 45 Secrets That All High School Teachers Need to Know. In my book, I wrote a chapter about behaviour management and, whilst I drew upon a variety of sources and personal experiences, I also used the Behaviour Management Pocketbook as a point of reference. I would highly recommend this book for all teachers, not just NQT's or those who find behaviour management challenging. This book is a real eye-opener.
