Classroom management is an area of genuine concern to students and NQTs. As there is only basic coverage of classroom management issues on initial training courses, new teachers often find it difficult to cope in busy classroom situations. This easy-to-read book helps you to select the right strategies for your classroom. The practical advice and points for reflection help you to think about why some strategies work and why others do not, and to decide which ones will work for you. Chapters include advice on: o behaviour management. o organizing your classroom. o routines, scripts and 'teacher-talk'. o positive prevention through class rules and targets. o praise, rewards and sanctions. o teacher 'presence'. o coping with difficult students.
