MEDIA REVIEWS
Gets to the heart of the issues with telling examples from a wide cross-section of students and teachers. -- Joe Murik, University of Canberra
Herbert Grossman's book comprehensively shares straightforward problem-solving techniques (both proactive and reactive) for teachers working in all types of classroom settings and diverse populations. An aspect that makes this text particularly unique is that it humanizes all students and offers psychologically based techniques to create a positive classroom environment. The detail-rich content and activities addressing conduct and emotional disorders will provide insights for all levels of teachers and guide them in effectively managing classrooms, as well as ways to respond to students representing these outlying groups. -- Caron Westland, University of Denver
Grossman's book is a comprehensive and provocative examination of 'classroom management' in the broadest sense. The book has lots to offer both veteran and novice educators. Grossman addresses many of the most complex and controversial issues in education, but with an unusual combination of openness and conviction. -- Marie Cashion, University of New Brunswick
Read this and you have covered the eternal verities of classroom management, those that apply to all teachers regardless of where, whom, or what they teach. -- John Visser, The University of Birmingham, UK
Grossman presents multidimensional and innovative ways to manage problem behaviors. Classroom Behavior Management for Diverse and Inclusive Schools is a book for this day and age! It addresses issues of diversity like no other behavior management text. -- Festus E. Obiakor, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
An excellent blend of research and practical experience. The insights and applications are specific to a wide range of school contexts/situations and provide a valuable source of reference information for both beginning and experienced educational professionals. -- Bill Morrison, University of New Brunswick
This text clarifies classroom realities in a positive manner and provides basic information to help teachers develop initial skills they need to teach in diverse and inclusive classrooms. * Teachers College Record *
A good measure of a book like this is to ask whether it might help even the most accomplished behavior management expert. My hunch is that it would. -- Steven Holden, Australian Council for Educational Research * Teacher *
This is a marvellous book. Its coverage is encyclopedic and goes well beyond the classroom management and diversity issues of the title. It is a useful handbook for specialists as well as a fine text for teachers and students on teacher-training courses. The author has a gift for succinct summary that is always comprehensive, judicious and balanced. On the substantive topic of the title the book is packed with fascinating detail, discussed with the breezy insouciance that could come only from a nation of immigrants. * Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties *
This book should be accessible reference material for all teachers, who by definition should be interested readers in the topic. * Journal Of Education For Teaching *
