The natural condition of any classroom is harmonious, satisfying, and productive, so why do so many teachers struggle with problems of apathy, hostility, anxiety, inefficiency, and resistance? In this groundbreaking book, education expert John Shindler presents a powerful model, Transformative Classroom Management (TCM), that can be implemented by any teacher to restore the natural positive feelings in his or her classroom—the love of learning, collaboration, inspiration, and giving—and create a productive learning environment in which all students can achieve. Unlike other classroom management systems that view problems as something to be "handled," TCM offers suggestions for creating optimal conditions for learning, performance, motivation, and growth. This practical book shows teachers how to abandon ineffective short-term gimmicks, bribes, and punishments and adopt the proven management practices and new habits of mind that will transform their classrooms. Praise for Transformative Classroom Management "Transformative Classroom Management is a practical resource that explains the how and why of classroom management for novice and veteran teachers. Dr. Shindler recognizes the importance of preserving the teacher's sanity while ensuring the student's development of a personal sense of responsibility and a positive self-esteem." —Eileen Matus, principal, South Toms River Elementary School, New Jersey "I have read many other management books by other authors, but Transformative Classroom Management has been the best so far at demystifying the invisible forces in the classroom." —Will McElroy, 4th grade teacher, Los Angeles United School District "This book was an invaluable tool for me during my student teaching. It served as a reference book that I found myself continually drawn to while struggling to find ways to effectively manage 29 first graders. The ideas, concepts and suggestions in the book were so innovative and helpful that even my Master Teacher found herself implementing some of the ideas! A must have for all student teachers!" —Carol Gillon, student teacher, Seattle University "Insightful and thoroughly researched, Transformative Classroom Management is an invaluable tool to help teachers, newbies and veterans alike, develop fully functional and engaged learning communities." —Lisa Gamache Rodriguez, teacher, Los Angeles Unified School District
Praktische Ratschläge zur Klassenführung: "La classe - entre les murs": Ein Kino-Erlebnis und für uns Schulmeisterinnen und Schulmeister auch eine Übung im Sitzen auf Nadeln. Erging es Ihnen auch so? Gewiss, François ist ein sympathischer junger Lehrer, er sucht die Beziehung zu seiner lebendigen Klasse, will nur das Beste. Und doch scheitert er. Unprofessionell auch das Verhalten des Kollegiums. Ihnen könnte geholfen werden. Wenn sie zum Beispiel das vorliegende Buch studieren und seine ganz praktischen Ratschläge zur Klassenführung umsetzen würden: Den Anfang vorbereiten; Organisation des Klassenzimmers; Zusammenarbeit zwischen Eltern und Schule; Verfahrensabläufe einüben; Beziehungen gestalten; Klassenregeln entwickeln und einhalten; schwierige Situationen bewältigen. Das Buch von Christoph Eichhorn ist eine anregungsreiche Fundgrube für den Schulalltag! Problematisch hingegen finde ich Teil 4 "Motivationssysteme". Extrinsische Motivationsmittel und Benotung des sozialen Verhaltens führen kaum zum erwünschten Ziel, sind pädagogisch fragwürdig und diagnostisch unhaltbar. "Gute Lehrer-Schüler-Beziehung plus Classroom -Management - Expertise des Lehrers" (S. 12) allein machen noch keinen guten Unterricht aus. Hier liegt die Beschränkung des Buches. Ich vermisse Verweise auf grundlegende pädagogische und didaktische Aspekte. Trotzdem: Als sehr konkrete Hilfestellung zur Klassenführung empfehlenswert! Hans Anliker.

In Practical Application of Classroom Management Theories into Strategies, author George R. Taylor outlines the specific skills educators require for successful classroom management and behavior-control strategies. Research supports the premise that knowledge of effective classroom management techniques and strategies is essential in helping teachers to effectively deal with inappropriate, aggressive, and/or unacceptable classroom behaviors. For new teachers, classroom management is especially critical. In the book the following key elements are named as the cornerstone of successful classroom management for new, as well as seasoned, teachers: 1) how to manage children from diverse backgrounds, 2) how to employ effective strategies to deal with various types of behavior problems, 3) how to effectively assess and diagnose behavioral problems, 4) how to seek professional services, 5) how to effectively communicate with parents, and 6) how to recognize the ways cultural differences impact behavior. The success of these strategies will depend upon the teacher's demonstration of appropriate models, maintenance of a democratic environment, and a proactive approach.
