Coat of Many Pockets: Managing Classroom Interactions

Coat of Many Pockets: Managing Classroom Interactions is intended for beginning and returning teachers as well as educators wanting to enhance their behaviour management skills. The book is a handbook for understanding the aims and developing the practical techniques involved in managing individuals and groups in the classroom, based on a synthesis of major behaviour management thinkers.

The book shows teachers how to replace their customary reactions to difficult behaviour with skilled responses that contain the behaviour while engaging the student. The reader will learn practical social, emotional and cognitive responses to any challenging or confronting behaviour. The writing style is engaging and collegiate.

Engagement, containment and consequences replace 'discipline'. The underlying ethos is that students should be allowed to develop within boundaries that enhance their individuation.
