To be honest, if you’re a practising teacher then you probably either already own a copy of this book or have had one thrust into your hands by a helpful colleague at some point. If, however, this eminently sensible, practical and clear guide to behaviour management has somehow passed you by thus far, then you’re in for a treat. Cowley’s approach is unapologetically pragmatic – you won’t find great chunks of academic theory here, just a reassuring sense that she under stands both you and your students and, as a consequence, knows exactly what she’s talking about. In short, if you’re looking for something that will give you tried and tested techniques for helping children of all ages, social backgrounds and levels of engagement experience better teaching and learning in your classroom (and keep you sane, to boot) – this could well be it.
