A teacher's ability to manage the classroom strongly influences the quality of teaching and learning that can be accomplished. Among the most pressing concerns for inexperienced teachers is classroom management, a concern of equal importance to the general public in light of behaviour problems and breakdowns in discipline that grab newspaper headlines. But classroom management is not just about problems and what to do when things go wrong and chaos erupts. It's about how to run a classroom so as to elicit the best from even the most courteous group of students. An array of skills is needed to produce such a learning environment.

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Classroom Management raises issues and introduces evidence-based, real-world strategies for creating and maintaining well-managed classrooms where learning thrives. Students studying to become teachers will need to develop their own classroom management strategies consistent with their own philosophies of teaching and learning. It is hoped that this work will help open their eyes to the range of issues and the array of skills they might integrate into their unique teaching styles.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The SAGE Encyclopedia of Classroom Management presents practical strategies for creating and maintaining well-managed classrooms where learning flourishes. This encyclopedia is a must for academic libraries serving students who are pursuing a degree in the field of education, and will also be of value to anyone currently teaching. The easy accessibility of the online encyclopedia is a significant benefit to be considered when purchasing this resource."

-- R. Wolven * Reference Reviews *
"This latest in a long line of familiar two-volume SAGE encyclopedias is important-as editor Scarlett (Tufts Univ.) suggests
-because of the complexity of issues in classroom management and because research on this particular aspect of K-12
teaching is lacking despite being so critical....Like most works assembled by SAGE, the list of contributors is long and impressive, the articles are well written, and the mix of theoretical and practical information provides the reader with an easy way to get an authoritative overview of the
topics covered....Summing Up: Recommended. Advanced students; researchers/faculty; professionals/practitioners." -- D. E. Williams * CHOICE *
"Teachers can use this valuable guide to find a management style that works best, allowing them to elicit the best from all students. Evidence-based entries will support why such practices work and how to best establish them in a classroom scenario... this compilation will provide students who are pursuing a degree or position in the field of education with an excellent background in classroom management and point them in the direction for further study. Highly Recommended." -- J. Minshull * ARBA *
