Classroom Management

Do You Know the “Classroom Management Secret?” – Book Review

Classroom management isn’t going away. No matter how many years you’ve been teaching, a new tip or two never hurts! How about 45? One of my favorite authors, Michael Linsin, has a brand new book out called The Classroom Management Secret: And 45 Other Keys to a Well-Behaved Class. Watch the video as I talk about some of the 45 Keys and how you can use them in the art room.

Spoiler alert! There is a surprise in the first half of the video about my involvement with this book. Watch to find out!

If you find yourself struggling with even the smallest classroom management issues, I highly recommend the online class, Managing the Art Room. This is your chance to talk to other art teachers and an experienced instructor privately about your issues and successes so you can start the new year off on the right foot.
