In spite of established routines and expectations, each transition throughout the day becomes a potential challenge, as can student behaviour during group work and instructional times.

    Reply
  • Yes, please! I would love to win a copy! I am up to the point where I feel like I am at the end of the tunnel and I cannot manage my chatty classes anymore. What makes it worst is that I am a brand new teacher and I do not have a bag of tricks yet. Whatever I had, I’ve used them all… I fear that the students are feeling my insecurity and thus are taking control of my class. I really want learning to happen but I just can’t do this anymore… Winning one copy would save my insanity!

  • This book sounds like a great resource! One of my biggest classroom management struggles in my first few years of teaching was learning how to control a chatty class. I strive to foster a respectful, learning environment in which students and teachers alike listen to and learn from one another. But it is quite a challenge to get talkative students to be quiet and listen to each others’ ideas and to take turns speaking. I would greatly appreciate this resource! Thank you for providing this opportunity, Shelley!

The cheapest Amazon price for this book is $71.93. Is that accurate?? Cause if it is, I’m actually gonna need to win your giveaway to own this book… :0
