Review

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

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."

This book contains some great strategies for behaviour management. Although it's aimed for school teachers, they can be transferred to other levels of teaching. Wish I'd read it when I first qualified 7 years ago!

Excellent reading and tips but as with all these type of books the proof is in the proverbial pudding. There is so much to absorb that from a practical viewpoint, I think about which techniques I'm going to use and see if they work.

In very good condition. A really good read for classroom behaviour management only if I found this before I started teaching.

Sue Cowley is the super confident behaviour guru who I was lucky enough to meet at the Education Show and was able to take part in one of her training sessions. I bought my personal copy at the Education Show and enjoyed reading every page! Like her 'Getting the buggers to behave 2', this book is just a joy to read, even hilarious! There are plenty of tips and tricks to take control in the classroom. Her books certainly helped me to take control when I was a new teacher! I still go back from time to time for a giggle, because it is so good. Even though I have now been teaching several years, I still relate to a lot of the stories that Sue uses to highlight strategies for overcoming unsatisfactory behavior. I am instantly reminded of some of the experiences that I had as a new teacher. Everything Sue writes about is definitely still relevant today!

I would wholeheartedly recommend any of the books in her series, even if only for a bit of fun bed-time reading!

Please let me know if my review is useful. Feel free to make suggestions for improvement. Thanks.

OK, so I admit I started reading this with a giant pinch of salt at the ready. It was unnecessary. I've been teaching for almost thirty years now, I've seen many ( too many ) changes in that time and if I had to give a book to a trainee teacher then this would be the one.

Children are not the enemy - they are children - even the 18 year olds - and this book offers much sound advice to keep you sane and happy through your teaching career.

This is an excellent guide to one of the best professions in the world.
