Pupil behaviour is commonly the most worrying thing on beginner teachers minds. Sue s book gives is a clear, concise and comprehensive guide to creating the conditions for learning that teachers and pupils need to succeed. I would recommend this book to everyone entering the teaching profession, the guidance it offers will enable you to become the very best teacher you can be. --- Nicholas Hall, Teach First Director and education author

OF PREVIOUS EDITION: Written with Sue Cowley's characteristic humour and sharp wit, this is a must have for all teachers - full of practical, easy to use and effective ideas. --- Teach Primary

The many suggestions are incredibly useful and work! Great to find examples of what I tell students to do, and why, in this book. An essential text. > --- Senior Lecturer</i
