Just a suggestion send the book to the teachers over there. The discipline survival kit for secondary education for teachers

The person who submitted the two star review seems to be more interested in touting their skills as a teacher rather than specifically identifying deficiencies at the school. I might point out that this critic misspelled desperate.

I might increase my stars later on but so far I am finding that while the teacher-student ratios are lower than any other school around, the teachers are in despirate need of re-training in classroom management and taking control of their class'. I teach in another school nearby, same ages, and my class is performing arts-comedy. I have a class of between 13-18 students each semester of CLASS CLOWNS! It's not easy, I love it very much though. I would hate it if I didn't manage my class correctly, however. There is a book called "The Discipline Survival Kit for Secondary Education Teachers" which was my textbook for an in-school sponsored course for "Classroom Management Skills." I love it, every teacher should pick up a copy since it's filled with ideas that many people might not have thought of. One idea - When a teacher can't seem to get them to pay attention. Choose to be randomly out of the ordinary - I start dancing by myself in silence (and in very weird ways). One time this year I decided to lay down on the floor until they were all wondering where I was. I've even taken that time to practice my singing voice! They pay attention!
