New To This Edition

  • Updated content is incorporated throughout that reflects advances in instructional technology and recently published research findings.
  • Attention to legal implications of teachers’ choices of classroom management practices - especially teachers’ responses to students’ off-task behaviors - is more emphasized throughout the text than it was in the prior edition.
  • Nineteen cases observed since the publication of the sixth edition have been incorporated and some of the previous cases were deleted.
  • To accommodate the new content without appreciably increasing the book's length and to improve the pedagogy, the writing throughout has been edited so that the presentations are crisper and connections among various topics are more explicitly explained.
