I love how the authors have spelled out practical ways to bridge research and practice."; Kathy Piechura-Couture Stetson University Comprehensive Classroom Management presents practical methods for creating a positive learning environment, working with behavioral problems, and dealing with a range of challenges in the K-12 classroom. This text uses real-life examples to help both pre- and in-service teachers understand and apply the principles of classroom management in their own classroom situations. Through numerous case studies, examples, and descriptions of specific strategies based on solid research and classroom experience, Comprehensive Classroom Management features classrooms ranging from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The book focuses on creating positive learning environments for students, and provides extensive, practical materials on both problem solving and building individual behavior change plans for students with behavioral problems. New to this Edition: Rewritten thoroughly to edit excess quotes, references, and theory, while still offering clarity in background and research, the book is more concise and reads more smoothly.

Additional illustrations, added throughout the book, enhance student interest and lighten the mood of the text.

Internet references throughout the book provide students and instructors with material to supplement the text's content. New! Complete Instructor's Manual and CD with sample test items, activities, reproducible forms and links to useful sites will make course preparation far easier. New!
