    One thought on “Classroom Management for Art, Music, and PE Teachers”

    1. Finally a book about classroom management for specialists! This is a really great book with lots of helpful advice and ways of thinking about things. Much of his advice resonates with me's very logical. I recommend this to any new specialist teacher, it will be a great way to get you started and in the right mindset.

    2. Good informationI wish this would have addressed Library Media Specialists as well but, the suggestions are sound and logical. This is a good reminder of what to do and not to do before the new school year. My remaining question is how to deal with students who refuse to go to time out.

    3. #Bookadaychallenge Difficult to find books that deal with classroom management in "Specials" classes. Even though this does not include Library classes, I found a lot of good ideas that I will try to use next year. Would be a good book discussion with the rest of our school "Specials" team at our meetings next year.

    4. Inspired Reading for Specials TeachersThis book is what I needed to start looking forward to the next school year. It is written for elementary art, music and PE teachers but it applies to middle school electives (including health, drama, foreign language, etc.) and probably high school as well. The primary key to good classroom management, according to this book, is consistency in following your routines and procedures and issuing calm but fair and consistent consequences. The author teaches th [...]

    5. A fantastic read with great practice advice. I felt like I was constantly highlighting things on every page I read. There is so much practical advice in this book. Every time I put it down, I felt inspired to go and apply what it said. I’ll definitely be sharing this with other teachers!

    6. So sad that I have to resort to reading a book like this after all the years I've been involved in teaching Art to children. These may be the most challenging classes I've ever had. Pleased to report that the techniques I've used so far are working, slowly. But, man, it's sooooooo boring waiting for them to stop the fooling around and be ready to even come in the Art room.

    7. Yes it can happenI have lived the ideas in this valuable little book and have seen them work in my music classroom with real kids in real time. With simplicity and consistency the ideas in this valuable little book work. If your classroom is a bit of a zoo, then the ideas in this valuable little book are necessary for your children and your sanity.

    8. Great ideas!Excellent book for classroom teachers transitioning to specialists positions. Should include librarians and computer teachers in elementary school. Wish I had this 2 years ago!

    9. Good bookHelpful to the specialist teacher. I tried some of the techniques and they actually worked with my students this week.

    10. This is the first "whole" teacher book I have read since returning to teaching recently as relief/ supply. I have tried a few samples but not felt inspired to keep reading as I knew they were not what I was looking for (at this point in time- relief teaching has fairly specific issues all of its own).This one started off well for me and I thought that there were a lot of ideas that were useful and tips that I needed to be reminded of. His main idea is that as a specialist teacher, you need to be [...]

    11. I love the book and highly recommend it to all music teachers. I see it like a blueprint for successful management of people and time. The author provides simple, clearly understood tips and strategies for any possible out of control scenario. I especially like the organized content of the chapter titles of the book. For example:Leverage & InfluenceRoutines & ProceduresListening & Following DirectionsRules & ConsequencesBad Days & Tough ClassesOverall, what I found extremely [...]

    12. A lot of the information in here was just Classroom Management 101, but it was a quick, easy read and the reminders of those basic principles were so helpful. I've noticed that since reading this book I do a better job of keeping my cool and just calmly and patiently waiting for students to meet the expectation or having them repeat something until they get it right. I don't get upset about it or burden students with as many lectures and there is a noticeable difference in the feeling in my musi [...]

    13. Clear concise and to the point When people refer to classroom management, it always seemed like this vague concept that no one could really explain. This book provided a clear step by step description of what do and how to do it. I was feeling very defeated and hopeless about my tougher classes but now I have the tools and newfound confidence to go in there and do what I need to do to regain control and enjoy teaching again!

    14. Game changerI've come upon my 11th year teaching elementary art and I thought I needed a refresher. Instead I got a whole new way of thinking about classroom management and it works! It's so simple and beautiful. I'm calmer, leave my classroom with less tension. A must read for those of us who teach 500 plus kids a week.

    15. I would recommend this book to anyone in the educational field, not just those in art, music, or P.E. education. It has really good tips on how to get better class management to help with every day classes.I consider my copy as "Acceptable" because while it's very new, I highlighted and underlined parts of it as notes to myself.

    16. It validated the problems that specialist teachers have. It didn't really give any earth-shattering advice, but it did give advice unique to resource teacher's environment. I would recommend it even though it was repetitive.

    17. Great advice for the specialistFinally, a book on classroom management that takes into account the unique challenges that art, music and PE teachers face, especially when you see them only once or twice a week. Fast read packed with ideas honed from years of experience.

    18. Easy breezyQuick easy breezy read that reinforced what I already knew. Reminded me of the most helpful ways to conduct a class. Certainly a nice refresher for even the most seasoned educator.

    19. A must-read for Art, Music and PE Teachers!Finally, a book for us specialists! Although there are many wonderful books for educators out there, it is difficult to find one that addresses the issues that resource or specialist teachers encounter on a daily basis. Thank you!

    20. Some solid ideas here would be a valuable read for new teachers; a good refresher but not much new for veterans.

    21. Perfect book to read to brush up on classroom management. Tons of great tips and direct to the point short chapters.

    22. Nothing new about managing kids that I don't already doI might revisit before next school year to get a refresher.

    23. Loved how succinct his chapters are! Great material! Putting into place 3 new things in my room. Thank you!!
