Stressing the need to build caring, supportive relationships with and among students, Middle and Secondary Classroom Management: Lessons from Research and Practice offers research-based guidance on effective classroom management. It addresses current concerns about student motivation and helps prospective and beginning teachers develop a philosophy of classroom management that focuses on building connections with students and creating safe, caring classrooms. By integrating the thinking and the actual management practices of four real secondary teachers into discussions of research-based management principles, this introductory text helps readers connect theories with actual results. Further, the text demonstrates how real teachers can adapt to any circumstance--physical room constraints, curriculum requirements, challenging behaviors--and still be successful.

Case Studies The case studies illustrate how four real teachers from four different grade levels and school settings think about their management tasks. Readers learn about their decisions, and then, through use of discussion questions, have a chance to react to those decisions.
Matches Management to Activities The book recognizes that management demands vary as classrooms shift from one type of activity to another, Consequently, whole chapters are devoted to the management demands of these classroom activities: seatwork, groupwork, and recitations.
Communication Focus Positive communication with students and parents is stressed throughout but especially in chapters 5 and 11.
Multiple Markets In addition to being a core text in classroom management courses, the book's size, price, and its companion volume allow it to be used as part of a customized teaching package in any course in which classroom management is a major topic.About the Author:
