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.

An essential tool

As a music teacher, there’s nothing more challenging than trying to teach your students when there is a lack of order in and around the classroom. I find the concepts contained in this book to be extremely valuable. It allows us to impact our students in a way that is most profitable for them, and at the same time creating freedom for us to do what we do best.

Good strategy with one thing missing

I enjoyed listening to this book. The classroom management plan he lays out is doable and the techniques for teachers to control their own selves seem important but not often thought of.
My only question after reading is how to handle students who become aggressive, continue the misbehavior in timeout or push back really badly when you ask them to do timeout.
Overall a good book though.

Great!

Definitely a great book to prepare a 1st year teacher! I love that he gives concrete examples of the "do's and don'ts!"

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!
