  5. ASCD Arias Publication: Managing 21st Century Classrooms

    Classroom management may be the hardest part of being a teacher: fraught with power struggles, it often leaves teachers feeling stressed and drained and students feeling mutinous or powerless.

According to award-winning author and classroom management expert Jane Bluestein, it's long past time for our strategies to catch up to the kids we're teaching. This timely, practical publication, also includes a quick-reference chart contrasting ineffective, destructive approaches with effective, proactive strategies.
