Classroom Management 4E empowers you to develop an individual classroom management plan that suits your professional philosophy and teaching style. It introduces the Lyford model, a framework that illustrates the many elements of successful classroom management.

As you work towards developing your own individual approach to classroom management, engaging stories from early-career teachers help you to apply the concepts to real-life situations. A new chapter on contemporary issues in classroom management keeps you up to date with a wide range of topics that impact upon today's learning environments.
