"The most difficult skill my student teachers struggle to master in their very short internship is classroom management. And without it, none of the other wonderful things that they've been waiting to try as teachers are ever entirely successful. Evanski’s book is exactly what I've been looking for. In easy-to-understand steps and language, he provides workable solutions to the common management experiences of every classroom teacher.
