    Positive Classroom Management

    by Incentive Publications
    Page count: 143
    Paperback
    A customer review says: We teach at-risk middle schoolers in an alternative program. The last couple years we've been trying to settle on a classroom management model that our type of students would buy into. Positive Classroom Management is exactly what we were looking for. It offers streamlined forms and charts for managing everyday as well as special activities. The emphasis on self evaluation is also very important to kids who don't make good choices. We especially like the use of literature as a tool for reflection when a student has had a behavior problem. This book is filled with reproducible forms and posters. We highly recommend this very useful tool!
