Your Classroom or Their Playground: Classroom Management Observations and Conversations for the New Teacher (Paperback)
"If teachers can't manage their classrooms, they can't offer their students effective instruction. It just doesn't work."
After 15 years as a middle school English teacher and mentor teacher leader, Ms. Iantha Ussin grew tired of watching new teachers struggle to reach their students. She learned their hardship was due to an inability to manage their classrooms.
Her solution? This book.
Written specifically for new teachers and education majors, Your Classroom or Their Playground: Classroom Management Observations and Conversations for the New Teacher is a guide to help new teachers not only establish order in their classrooms, but also maintain it and ultimately help students reach their fullest academic potential.
Chapter by chapter, Ms. Ussin details first-hand accounts of what worked in her classroom and in other teachers' classrooms, and what didn't. Along with research-based, proven management strategies, she provides a wealth of veteran tips, tricks, and guidance of her own that can work in any classroom with any curriculum.
