      I use the Harry Wong book, too, but I'm trying Whole Brain Teaching this year. I stumbled across it from a Pinterest link and then looked it up online and watched the videos. I like it because it seems fun and manageable.

        The management strategies that I use offer opportunities for each student to become engaged in the classroom before they are engaged in the class. Every student gets some responsibility for something, and it is can become quite elaborate. Send me a note for my system, since there is not much room here to write how my classes have been organized for the last 27 years.

          Michael, I've heard of Harry K. Wong's book but haven't read it yet. I watched his videos during my student teaching seminars and LOVED them! I should really check out the book though. I have not heard of Michael Kelley's book. I will look it up.

          I find that classroom management is one of my strong points but I'm always looking to improve my teaching and enjoy getting advice from other teachers! I haven't team-taught so I am merely asking for my current situation of teaching independently. I sometimes have my students sitting in groups and sometimes in rows, it just depends on the time of the year. Regardless of their configuration, I am always requiring them to interact!

Although originally geared towards significantly underperforming children, this program will benefit any student type.
