Teaching isn't all about teaching; new teachers quickly realise that they need to be lion tamers too. Controlling a class isn't something that comes naturally to everyone - but it can be learned. This no-nonsense guide tells teachers what the teacher training didn't, and offers instant strategies for dealing with the most common, and extreme, classroom scenarios. Using his experiences of teaching in inner-city schools, as Behaviour Guru on the TES advice forum and working as a nightclub bouncer, Tom Bennett helps teachers, old and new, to assert their authority in the classroom.

Review:

'This is a very good book indeed, both timely and necessary.... Bennett writes with humour, style, understanding, a massive amount of common sense and not a little wisdom. And how often do you use those words in an educational context?' --Times Educational Supplement

'a jargon-free, unpatronising, highly browsable and accessible set of responses and suggested solutions to common classroom management issues...if you want an instant answer without having to wade through pages of search results, other people's mis'spelled comments on the forum, or just a reminder that you are not alone in the big bad world of behaviour, you would do well to turn to this book which seems, like Mr Bennett himself (and perhaps that really annoying kid who sits near the back in 9X4), to have an answer for everything... a book that no self-respecting staff room or faculty office should be without... our Behaviour Guru hovers, like a guardian angel, ready to gently reassure, redirect and reintroduce classroom Zen.' --Jenny Turner, Journal of Trainee Teacher Educational Research, UK
