Classroom Management: Engaging Students in Learning focuses on what teachers can do to create quality learning environments with their students.  This new edition addresses the seven Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) teacher standards which pre-service teachers need to meet.  

The Positive Learning Framework (PLF) described in this text demonstrates effective instructional strategies that engage students in learning as well as developing the skills needed to positively respond to misbehaviour and de-escalate conflict. This PLF model is commonly used and easily adaptable providing pre-service teachers with a tool they can take into the classroom.
