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. Based on a synthesis of major behaviour management thinkers, this handbook outlines the aims and practical techniques involved in managing individuals and groups in the classroom.

Topics include:

  • How to replace customary reactions to difficult behaviour with skilled responses that contain and engage students
  • Practical social, emotional and cognitive responses to challenging or confronting behaviour, and
  • The underlying ethos is that students should be allowed to develop within boundaries that enhance their individuation.
