Education Week has just released my newest book — it’s an Ebook compilation of posts on classroom management and student engagement that have appeared in my Education Week Teacher column, along with some new materials I’ve added. Contributions from many educators from around the United States are featured.
The cost is $8.99, and all author royalties go to the National Writing Project to support innovative K-12 instruction.
Here’s how Ed Week describes it:
Within the collective wisdom of teachers are the answers to the most common classroom management questions. But, many teachers have no shortage of items on their to-do list, and often times feel lost or “just getting by” when it comes to using and applying strategies for effective classroom management. In this e-book, Education Week blogger Larry Ferlazzo taps the expertise of leading educators, who respond Q&A-style to a variety of classroom management questions, such as:
• How can I get the new school year off to a good start?
• Can teacher be friends with students?
• How can I help my students develop good habits?
• What does student engagement look like?
This e-book brings together the best contributions from Ferlazzo’s Education Week blog “Classroom Q&A with Larry Ferlazzo.” Ferlazzo, who teaches English, social studies, and International Baccalaureate classes to students at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, Calif., offers his take on classroom management along with a network of leading experts. Together, they provide the strategy-based answers that get to the heart of effective instruction.
