A must-have book for every classroom teacher. ( )

I received a copy of this book when I first started teaching but didn't get around to reading it until the next summer and I was so glad I did! This book is great for new teachers! ( )

This is a great book for those who are going into the teaching profession, as well as those who are currently teaching. This book provides ways to increase classroom behavior, and minimizing misbehavior. This allows increasedtime for learning. The book also teaches how to improve teaching. There are many aspects to this book, and is well worth the time it takes to read it. ( )

This book will always hold a sentimental place in my heart...but the information contained within is quintessential. New teachers should always, always read this book--and, of course, while I own this copy, I would highly suggest the purchase of the updated edition. ( )

If a teacher ever needed a refresher seminar, this book is it. It is the reference. Fred Jones has a similar book, and it too is a great reference tool. However, somehow Wong's book gets my first vote each time. You don't have to read it straight through. You can skip around and still not miss a beat of what you need to brush up on or need to be reminded of to get the classroom managed better and have the rhythems of learning take place flowingly. Whenever you think you are losing control in the classroom, just access this book and you will find your missing component. Sometimes the adjustment is very minute. And that is all it takes, the minute adjust to get your control back on track so that you are doing more than just crowd control. YOu can actually teach, the kids start to learn because they have been encased by the expectations of learning. ZMaleki ( )
