Summary
  • "[This book] is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in managing the classroom. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading educators, psychologists, and researchers, reflect a variety of viewpoints and have been selected ... because of their value in a debate framework.... By requiring students to analyse opposing viewpoints and reach considered judgments, [this book] actively develops students' critical thinking skills." --Back cover.
