Just what I needed Jul 15, 2008
This volume combines information from other works by the author and organizes it into an easy to use workbook. It takes you step-by-step through the process of setting up a well-planned classroom. This is not a book of bulletin board ideas or teaching tricks, but how to be a caring, professional, and most importantly, effective teacher for all your students, not just the easy ones. There were three basic ideas that made it work for me. First, the explanation of the reasoning behind different student behaviors and a teacher's typical responses was eye-opening. Secondly, the very logical and detailed way to change your responses by having a different mindset and a plan to handle things made a lot of sense, and actually clarified for me why some teachers don't have a problem with difficult students. The third and most practical help was in samples: sample situations, sample responses, and sample plans. I am looking forward to implementing many of these ideas into my classes this coming year.
Excellent Product & Prompt Delivery Sep 15, 2007

Excellent classroom resource Jul 13, 2007
This book is very user-friendly. The text flows and it is not overly wordy, as some teacher resource material can be. The book offers a no non-sense approach to classroom management. There are numerous reproducibles and transparency models available. Great read, with great ideas!
Every new teacher should own this book Jun 15, 2006
A detailed curriculum guide for teaching appropriate, responsible behavior has been needed for so long but has not been available--until now. As Harry Wong said, "The number one problem in education is not discipline. It is the lack of procedures and routines resulting in students not knowing what to do-responsibly-in the classroom." Canter's book addresses this need in a systematic and detailed way. In the many books on classroom management that I've read, I've never encountered a more teacher-friendly book that explains exactly what adequately teaching expectations looks like. I wish I had had this book as a brand-new teacher, but, as a five-year "veteran," I'm glad to have it now. I can hardly wait to see my classroom management transformed by Canter's guidelines.
