"An excellent resource. One need not read the entire book to find solutions to problems. This book is not merely a general strategy that promises to solve all of your classroom management problems. Instead, it is an all-inclusive set of descriptions of specific types of problem students and effective strategies that teachers can use to manage and cope with specific problems. I classifyTeaching Problem Students as a necessary resource for teachers in today's complicated classrooms." --The Science Teacher
"A compendium of the best of educational research and wisdom regarding instruction of problem students. It would be an excellent primary or secondary text for classroom management and could serve as the basis of inservice training or teaching study groups." --Intervention In School and Clinic
