Classroom management is the number one issue for both new teachers and experienced educators. Best-selling author Marsha L.

Providing easy-to-implement strategies, this reader-friendly guide covers the use of lighting, music, humour, constructive conversations, movement, classroom rituals, and parental support to actively engage students in a positive way.
Each chapter follows a consistent structure and contains:
* A clear definition of the strategy
