The Running the Room Companion : Issues in classroom management and strategies to deal with them
In Running the Room: The Teacher's Guide to Behaviour, Tom Bennett rewrote the book on behaviour management, and outlined the psychology and dynamics underpinning student habits.
In this companion, he goes into more detail about how to apply those principles to the classroom.
Addressing a wide range of circumstances, he explores popular teacher dilemmas such as:How to deal with students who are late?What are the best ways to work with parents?Managing cover lessons successfullyHow to tame smartphonesThe best way to design a seating planHow to start the lesson for the first timeDealing with low-level disruptionGetting the class quiet when you - and they - need it the mostAnd many more.
Using practical examples and evidence-informed techniques, Tom demystifies the puzzles that complex behaviour often presents, and guides teachers new and old carefully to a better understanding of how to run the room they way everyone deserves.
