Harry Wong

Harry Wong is amazing in person. High energy, full of examples, humor, and laser focus ideas. Classroom management is not discipline. It's having a plane to communicate meeting needs of students, making kids feel valued and safe, and getting them to work. Read his work online. Buy his book, First day of school. He and his wife write a monthly column in the Teachers.Net Gazette. The online zine, TG, is worth checking out.
