    Let me admit that I went about this all wrong: I read Michael Linsin’s Classroom Management for Art, Music, and P.E. Teachers before I read his Dream Class: How To Transform Any Group Of Students Into The Class You've Always Wanted. I turned to Classroom Management for Art, Music, and P.E.

Linsin’s book is pretty short, but it gives related-arts teachers the skills they need to manage students they see only once or twice a week. It doesn’t have any particular advice for teachers on a cart (like me), but it’s still got plenty of good ideas to use. Now, on to read Dream Class!

    Finally a book about classroom management for specialists! This is a really great book with lots of helpful advice and ways of thinking about things. Much of his advice resonates with me...it's very logical. I recommend this to any new specialist teacher, it will be a great way to get you started and in the right mindset.

    So sad that I have to resort to reading a book like this after all the years I've been involved in teaching Art to children. These may be the most challenging classes I've ever had. Pleased to report that the techniques I've used so far are working, slowly. But, man, it's sooooooo boring waiting for them to stop the fooling around and be ready to even come in the Art room.

    Elementary Drama Teacher This book was incredibly helpful. I don't know if the background of my Kindle edition is even white anymore with all the highlighting. I think I spent my first year doing Classroom Management in the "all day every day" approach I learned in college without realizing that doesn't work in the atmosphere of elementary enrichment. This book really helped me to see how I was being over the top and how to pare it down for the truth of my classroom. Elementary Drama Teacher This book was incredibly helpful.

Even though this does not include Library classes, I found a lot of good ideas that I will try to use next year. Would be a good book discussion with the rest of our school "Specials" team at our meetings next year. #Bookadaychallenge Difficult to find books that deal with classroom management in "Specials" classes.

    Good information I wish this would have addressed Library Media Specialists as well but, the suggestions are sound and logical. This is a good reminder of what to do and not to do before the new school year. My remaining question is how to deal with students who refuse to go to time out.

    Yes it can happen I have lived the ideas in this valuable little book and have seen them work in my music classroom with real kids in real time. With simplicity and consistency the ideas in this valuable little book work. If your classroom is a bit of a zoo, then the ideas in this valuable little book are necessary for your children and your sanity.

    I work in the library and this book is perfect for dealing with classroom management for multiple classes and grades. Great ideas! And an easy, understandable read.

If you are feeling burned out and defeated about teaching, I highly recommend this book.

    A lot of things that are in every core classroom's management tool box but FINALLY explained as it applies to specials/elective classrooms! I can't tell you how many times I've either wanted to or been told I have to use a method in my room and then it just didn't work because specials/electives ARE different.

    4.5 Stars. An excellent resource aimed especially at Art teachers, which is a bit ironic given the author is a PE teacher. This book is most helpful if you teach at the elementary level...which I do not. There are a lot of tactics here that simply do not or can apply to middle or high school teachers and students. A lot is predicated on having your class start out in the hallway after students have arrived at my doorstep in one neat tidy line (or not), but that ain't ever gonna happen in my case 4.5 Stars.

    Nice to read a book specifically for specialists (I teach library) and recognizing the challenges we face every day. I was surprised by the fact of keeping things simple equals success. I found it had a lot of useful tips and I am planning on restructuring my classroom management according to suggestions in this book. Found it very helpful and I will be referring back to this book throughout the school year as needed.

    This book has a lot of great information and helpful hints into how to better run your classroom. The specialty areas really help a lot. A lot of times I read books that are generalized teaching, this one is specific to Art, Music and PE teachers. The author understands how our schedules work and the amount of students we see on a weekly rotation. There were a lot of helpful bits, but several repeats.

    There are some good tips in here, and it was nice to find a book specific to "specials" teachers. It was a good reminder and a quick read. As a new teacher, I didn't really find anything new in here, and there were a couple of suggestions that I disagreed with. The author doesn't seem to think much of classroom teachers, which is an unhelpful point of view -- we have to work as a team as much as possible. I'd suggest it to new teachers, with a couple of caveats. There are some good tips in here, and it was nice to find a book specific to "specials" teachers. It was a good reminder and a quick read.

    As an art teacher, I found this classroom management resource to be very helpful. I really appreciate how the author addresses up front that managing specials (Art, Music & PE) classes is a different animal in terms of classroom management. The author provides helpful tips that take you step-by-step through the process of successful classroom management. I recommend that all apprentice special teachers take time to listen/read this book. It's not too long which is great too!

    Right to the point and very useful I love that the book is geared toward specialists teachers. It is a difficult teaching situation and it deserves the focus that this book gives it. I enjoyed how every chapter is short, clear, and straight to the point. As a new specialist teacher, I appreciate the way this book is written and the sound advice it gives. Thank you for writ g this book Mr. Linsin

    I bookmarked a couple pages in this book to revisit, but other than a few choice pages, everything seemed so.... like "duh". I didn't learn anything astronomically new in this book, and the author repeated the same strategies over and over. He also only assumed there was one schedule, and most of his strategies seemed based around an elementary classroom. It read more like an internet article on a teaching website than a book. Next!

    I read this book because I have struggled in my 2 years of teaching with classroom management at times but this book is a goldmine for me. So many gems here and my favorite is the reminder that we should enjoy what we do and not take things personally. We should care deeply about our students but not care (at least where it affects us emotionally) about how they respond to us or disobey our directions. I will read this book on an annual basis and I will pass it along to others as well!

    A fantastic read with great practice advice. I felt like I was constantly highlighting things on every page I read. There is so much practical advice in this book. Every time I put it down, I felt inspired to go and apply what it said. I’ll definitely be sharing this with other teachers!

    Concise volume of practical tips. Written for Art, Music and PE teachers, but applicable to my practice as a Technology Education and Language Arts teacher candidate as well. Would have liked more advice for older grades, but the book can't be all things. Gained points for its concision and actionability. Lost points for the author's tendency to sound a little too sure of himself and his tips. Concise volume of practical tips.

    Great info for this 1st year art teacher As a first year art teacher, I gleaned a lot of great information from this book. I was encouraged to continue some of the practices I have been doing. I have also learned that some of my other practices have been essentially shooting myself in the foot. Highly recommend this book!

    This book offers excellent insight into how to more effectively manage your classroom as a specialist. Despite teaching PE for eight years, I’ve been able to hone my skills more by implementing the advice this book offers. I’m able to teach in a more calm manner, control my frustrations, and find a firm yet fun way to approach my students. This book is a must have for all specialists!
