I have searched a very long time to find a textbook that would support preservice teachers' understandings of classroom management as the development of a democratic community, and this textbook is that and much more! The online video clips are an excellent resource, and my students' feedback has been so positive regarding the "reader-friendly" text. The topics are organized in a manner that fit well together, too.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
