The Classroom Management Secret
by Michael Linsin
I recommend this book for any teacher or parent who would like some no nonsense and practical advice on how to get your students to rise to your expectations. Michael Linsin lays out a plan for your whole class management as well as addressing individual students and behaviors. He also has a blog that is chock full of good tips and lessons to have the dream class you always hoped you would have. The book progresses step-by-step through 45 time-tested strategies, showing you how to manage your classroom in a way that inspires students to want to behave. By the end of the book, you'll have the knowledge to free your classroom of misbehavior and disrespect, build easy rapport with your students, and teach with a spirit of joy and passion that you've always longed for.
I also would recommend Dream Class . Another book by Michael Linsin. Easy to read with lots of great ideas and a true theme about how and why kids want to behave and learn.
