Dr. Houff presents a clear overview of current literature regarding classroom management. Moving from an older model of reactive, consequence-based approach to a proactive stance, she helps both novice teachers searching for strategies as they enter the field, as well as experienced educators searching for more effective ways to build rapport with students. The scenarios and cases presented throughout the text provide opportunities to connect educational theories to the realities of daily work with children in schools. Teachers searching for ways to build cohesive classroom communities and honor the students who comprise these communities will find this book a welcome resource. -- Dr. Adria Hoffman, field placement coordinator, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia
Managing the Classroom Environment offers teachers clear, practical strategies to an effective management program that encourages student responsibility and promotes student-learning. -- Kavatus Newell, Ph.D., school turnaroud consultant
As a formal middle level administrator, I highly endorse Dr. Houff's book on classroom management because it promotes prevention first and intervention only if necessary. The solid research component lays a strong foundation to assist educators in designing a classroom or school-wide behavioral system that creates a safe, productive and nurturing learning environment. -- Wendy Dzurick, director of K-12 instruction and former middle level administrator
