Excellent for ALL teachers!

Highly recommend! I am a new teacher and will benefit greatly from items discussed. I also have a friend who has taught for 20+ years and she was humbled when she first read Mr Linsin’s book. Well written and easy to understand!

inspiring

It is a powerful, resourceful and inspiring book! I wish it had more tips for cluster teachets at elementary schools. I find it to be more focused on classroom teachers of upper grades. Nevertheless it is a must read for anyone who struggles with classroom management.

Optimize Your Classroom

I have read lots of articles and books on classroom management and teaching styles but this book is both interactive and practical. I like the way the author gives step solutions for various issues in the classroom. Personally I plan to implement these ideas in my classroom to help create a place that is just right for learning.

This is the real deal...

Forget the naysayers, the "veteran" know-it-alls, and the excuse-slingers...This book really hit home with me. I saw myself in many of the "ineffective" scenarios presented by the author. I'm rewriting my classroom management plan for 2019-2020 and can't wait to get the new school year off to a much better start.

Excellent Read

I have found the content of this book to be more helpful than any other material I have read on the subject. I feel any teacher who takes the time to put the principles of this book to practice in the classroom will soon be a very happy and celebrated teacher.

Gives me Hope

Without condemnation Linsin states that the behavior of a class is the consequence of bad classroom management. I clearly see where and what happened in my own class. Thankfully he explains how to turn bad into good. Woohoo!
