I was reading Reluctant Disciplinarian last night. Lots of wonderful stuff here! The "hero teacher" section is so good I cheered, even though I've probably succumbed to that inclination now and then. I guess we all do. --Jonathan Kozol, Author, Death at an Early Age and On Being a Teacher
Reluctant Disciplinarian is that rare classroom management book that is both thoughtful and realistic. It is also a great read, with parts that are laugh-out-loud funny. We use Gary Rubinstein's book every year with our incoming teachers. Classroom management is a key to successful teaching and Rubinstein's book provides hard-won knowledge for how first-year teachers, or any teacher, can create a well-managed classroom. Rubinstein shows that classroom management can be both respectful and practical, in any situation. --Ben Guest, Program Manager, Mississippi Teacher Corps
