This is a comprehensive and practical introduction to classroom management that integrates cultural diversity and gender issues throughout. The text presents successful classroom management as a three-stage process: avoidance of behavioural problems through careful planning, organization and classroom modification; group management to maintain general order and a positive learning environment; individualized management for students who have specific behaviour problems. The book includes a new chapter on accommodating management techniques to children with different backgrounds and needs. Attention is also given to violence and the potential for violence, stereotyping, and prejudice and tolerance issues.
