If I was going into teaching now, I would want a handy, easily accessible booklet of dos and donts and possible strategies that I could employ. I would want it to be easy to understand and follow, and just as easy to put into practice. I would want to know that I could trust the strategies because they had been tried and tested in the most difficult of classrooms. I would also want a complete checklist of everything I needed to do before I even stepped into the classroom. From the introductionThe down-to-earth introduction to Dos and Donts of Behaviour Management sets the tone for this upbeat and practical guide for all of those who are new to teaching. Whether you are a trainee teacher, newly qualified teacher or recently qualified teacher, this book is essential reading. Containing advice on all aspects of behaviour management, this book covers problems such as managing problem pupils and dealing with a classroom riot. New topics covered in this new edition include avoiding confrontation and the use of humour, empathy and common sense.
