"Effective Classroom Management" is a fully updated edition of the best-selling guide for beginning teachers. While the fundamentals of classroom management have not changed, and indeed effective classroom management remains a key to productive learning, recent developments such as the Elton Report on discipline in schools, the introduction of the National Curriculum, and the implementation of the 1988 Education Reform Act have brought new concerns to the classroom.
Robert Laslett and Colin Smith have restructured the text to emphasize the four principles--management, mediation, modification and monitoring--which are central to classroom practice. This second edition builds on the strengths of the first by retaining the practical advice, and adds to it by providing support and comment from more recent empirical studies and other literature on school discipline and classroom management. "Effective Classroom Management" is a user-friendly, accessible and practical guide which addresses one of the major concerns of new teachers.
