—Amazon Review

In this revised and updated edition of the bestseller, the author draws on his extensive experience as an educational consultant and trainer to help teachers and managers develop a whole-school strategy for dealing with student behavior.

In a distinctive accessible and entertaining style, the book offers practical suggestions to support teachers as they face the pressures of accountability, assessment and rising concerns about student behavior.

This resource covers:

  • Positive discipline and the importance of consistency
  • Specific skills in the language of discipline, both verbal and non-verbal
  • Techniques for managing bullying, aggression, rudeness, and violence
  • Methods to use with behaviorally disordered students
  • The 4Rs--rights, rules, responsibilities, and routines
  • Behavioral consequences including 'time-out'
  • Behavior agreements or 'contracts'
  • Playground management
  • Setting up a behavior management plan and expressing it in policy

This book helps strengthen a school's capacity to work as a cohesive, cooperative unit linked with parents and the community to manage behavior successfully.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

There is a balance to strike in any organisation between front line support and over management. Mr Rogers has many good points to make textually and pictorially across his books and I can endorse that in person the compassionate understanding manner he brings to his writing.
One or two tips are worth remembering: separate the behaviour from the person, use positive language - focused on the issue at hand and give the students a voice.
