Well-Managed Classroom, Second Edition (New)
Michele Hensley, Walter Powell, Susan Lamke, and Scott Hartman
Having a well-managed classroom includes building a sense of community, cooperation, and care. This book provides an overview of the components of the Girls and Boys Town Education Model, a school-based intervention strategy. The model, which is rooted in applied behavior analysis and social learning theory, emphasizes behavior management techniques, relationship-building techniques, and social skills instruction. Meant to serve as a resource in improving classroom management, this book offers information on connecting with your students, increasing opportunities for student success, addressing students' behaviors, and communicating with stakeholders. By promoting the idea of "school as community," these practices and strategies aim to motivate students by helping them feel good about the classroom environment and the relationships they have within that classroom.
