This book offers straight talking advice in a question and answer format on dealing with fidgeting to extreme aggression, and everything in between. Teaching isn't all about teaching; new teachers quickly realize that they need to be lion tamers too. Controlling a class isn't something that comes naturally to everyone - but it can be learned. This no-nonsense guide tells teachers what the teacher training didn't, and offers instant strategies for dealing with the most common, and extreme, classroom scenarios. Using his experiences of teaching in inner-city schools, as Behaviour Guru on the TES advice forum, and working as a nightclub bouncer, Tom Bennett helps teachers, old and new, to assert their authority in the classroom.
