I cannot speak highly enough of Classroom Behaviour. All educators will identify with the situations Bill describes. He does not duck the realities in today's schools and classrooms. He provides clear guidance for putting professional integrity and emotional literacy into practice from early, minimal intervention to responding to the most difficult student and the most challenging situation.
Every teacher needs this book, and every student needs them to have read it.
-- Sue Roffey
Now in its third edition, Classroom Behaviour owes much of its success to the realism of its scenarios and case studies, and the lessons and advice that the author draws from them. He gives us forensic deconstruction and analysis, often with dialogue, of every conceivable classroom issue, challenge and potential crisis. There is much on language - tone, choice of words, and body language - reminding us just how easily we can undermine our intentions by the way we convey them. This new edition has additional material on bullying, teaching autism spectrum disorder children in mainstream schools, and working with challenging students. -- Gerald Haigh
The scenarios are real and relatable, the feelings and reflections honest, and the problem-solving strategies and interventions realistic. All teachers, teacher-researchers, professional leaders, and educationalists will benefit from contemplating and putting into practice the suggestions and guidance in this book and their students and colleagues may thank them too. -- Sandi Tait-McCutcheon
