Review:

"This is the best book I′ve read on classroom discipline. Classroom management and discipline are tough topics for teachers. Marcia Tate includes fantastic ideas in a nonthreatening manner." (Kathryn McCormick, Math Teacher 2006-02-02)

"Teachers of any grade level, PreK through adult, can benefit from this book. It is an easy read, with useful ideas that are backed up by quality research. Teachers can read about a strategy very quickly, learn why it is important, discover the steps for implementation, and begin reflecting on how to apply the strategy to their own classroom." 

(Denise Leonard, Beginning Teacher Support & Assessment Staff Development Teacher 2006-02-17)
