Highly recommended!

I recommend this for first-year teachers or a teacher in their 10th year! I have already started implementing his ideas and they are working!

Good information- dry delivery

I heard Michael Linsin in a podcast called "Cult of Pedagogy." He has this calm voice that immediately helps you understand how he has become a master of classroom management. His message is largely to never let your kids see you get angry with them, yell, lecture, or damage your relationship with them in any way. There was some useful stuff in here but it wasn't clear until I started the book that it is mostly only relevant for elementary teachers. I happen to teach high school and some of the advice would not work for teenagers- it might even get you laughed out of the room. Even so, I could translate a lot of the general messages to my high school classes, but I was so sad that the narrator was so stiff and formal when Michael Linsin himself is so grounded, earthy, and enthusiastic about his passion to help teachers manage their rooms. I would skip this book and just go listen to the podcast instead.
