They address the need for classroom management and discipline, the effects of classroom problems, and the need to consider student diversity; the problem of violence and bullying; general management models for elementary to high school levels, based on research and ranging from foundational to newer theorists; special issues, including culturally and gender responsive management; and developing a management plan.

It omits biographies of theorists. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
