Most teachers still rely on compliance and control to maintain order in their classrooms. Drawing on years of classroom experience and consulting work, Patricia Sequeira Belvel proposes a more effective strategy-classroom leadership for both teachers and students.

This second edition of the bestselling book, Rethinking Classroom Management, is based on a leadership model of prevention, intervention, and problem solving, and is filled with real-life examples, tips, strategies, and worksheets to help teachers foster leadership in themselves and their students.

The author's techniques help teachers to recognize and solve problems at an early stage before learning is disrupted. Integrating classroom leadership into the day-to-day life of the classroom establishes an environment that supports students' sense of self-esteem, influence, autonomy, and connectedness. Students enjoy a more productive and supportive learning climate while also learning important life skills such as problem solving and building successful relationships with peers.

"Many of today's discipline problems are student responses to outdated practices. This book lives up to its title, providing innovative approaches that demonstrate leadership rather than management. Teachers discover creative and proactive ways to engage students in the development of learning environments that are positively charged, cooperatively structured, and self-governed." -- Dutchess Maye, Fellow for Instructional Design
"For the past twenty years, I have used the tenets of Rethinking Classroom Management to support new teachers and work as a teacher on special assignment and later as an administrator. In my current role, I consistently refer principals to the RTI strategies found in Belvel's work. Ultimately these strategies lead to strengthened relationships and positive social behaviors. Students problem solve solutions that guide them to make constructive behavior choices so they can focus on academics." -- Fran Johnson, Administrative Leadership Coach
"Provides classroom teachers with a framework of techniques and strategies-anchored in prevention, intervention, and problem solving-that develop engaged, self-directed students with the social and critical thinking skills for the world ahead. The format is user-friendly and the scenarios and examples are excellent tools for exploring beliefs and management style, a first step in creating a positive learning environment where the teacher is a leader and facilitator of learning rather than a manager and controller." -- Andrea Lichter, Director
"This teacher guidebook gracefully weaves together theory, practice, and common sense about creating positive classrooms where students are active participants in their own learning and where teachers lead their students in developing academic and social skills for school and for life. It connects classroom management and instructional design, demonstrating that students attend to learning when they are engaged and when classroom rules and procedures are well established, make sense, and reflect both teacher and student desires for a nurturing and productive learning environment." -- Deborah Walker, President & CEO, Collaborative for Teaching and Learning
"I have used these strategies for nearly twenty years as a speech-language therapist, GATE teacher, and professional developer presenting the strategies to teachers. Recently, I have been working with colleagues in broadening my understanding and application of Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2), which is a framework and philosophy that can help in assisting Program Improvement Schools and Districts. Rethinking Classroom Management is a perfect match with RTI2 in both academic and behavioral realms. I would highly recommend this book to any school or district needing to enhance and strengthen RTI2." -- Liz Talbot, Director, Special Programs
"As a university instructor, I found Rethinking Classroom Management to be one of the best resources for preservice teachers. This book guides teacher candidates to solidify their values and beliefs about classroom management. They begin their teaching career with a solid foundation on how to develop a positive classroom learning environment." -- Ruth Ann Costanzo, Director of Clinical Work K-12
