About the Author

Nicola S Morgan has taught for 15 years in a variety of settings, including mainstream and special needs schools where she developed a reputation for managing the most difficult classes and pupils. Consequently, she was asked to organise training courses for teachers and later became a full-time trainer and consultant on primary school behaviour management. She now runs behaviour management projects at difficult schools based on intervention schemes which she has developed herself. She is the author of Quick, Easy and Effective Behaviour Management Ideas for the Classroom, also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Gillian Ellis is a headteacher of a large primary school in South Wales. She has developed a keen interest in creating a positive learning culture that will challenge and engage children through a whole school approach. She has represented local authorities through raising achievement groups, pilots and projects on behaviour management and worked with parents and family groups in creating positive partnerships with schools.


One aspect that I felt may be particularly useful was the self-assessment checklist, which teachers can use to explore why certain difficult behaviours are taking place, and to determine whether some basic elements of good behaviour management are present before further steps are takes.This book would be useful for primary school teachers, particularly those who are newly qualified. It would be useful for Educational Psychologists supporting such members of staff, as a resource to refer to.

It is always refreshing to read books by motivated and pro-active education staff who are prepared to think outside the box in order to help all children achieve their potential in school and this is one such book. There are a lot of easy to implement strategies and tips for teachers to use in this book making it one which should be in every school. I like the "Five Minute Golden Rule" idea in the first chapter and this tip alone could go a long way to restoring good self esteem in a child. I think if I were a teacher I would be excited about teaching with some of these ideas to promote positive behaviour within the whole class. The ideas in this book are inspirational and refreshing and there seems to be no reason why every teacher shouldn't be implementing some of them on a daily basis. This is wonderful book to dip in and out of for fresh ideas. -- OAASIS
