Management in the Active Classroom

It's what everyone wants and can have: classrooms that are respectful, active, collaborative, and growth-oriented. We believe that good classroom management skills aren't magic or a lucky gift given to a chosen few. This book provides clear, straightforward guidance to help all teachers learn, practice, and master techniques and protocols that build self-discipline, responsibility, engagement, and leadership skills in their students.
