1-2-3 Magic in the Classroom #audioreview

Posted December 18, 2017 by Berls in Review / 2 Comments

I really enjoyed the simple way the ideas for classroom management were presented 1-2-3 Magic in The Classroom. There’s explanation, followed by examples and scenarios. The concept is an equally easy one to implement in the classroom – I tried it out the last month of school and found it really effective and plan to continue using it in the future. Note: In the new school semester, I’ve found that I use it very loosely in connection with my Love & Logic strategies. It works well together, if you don’t get too hard core with it.

For me, the 1-2-3 method is the “meat” of the book – for stop behaviors. They have a whole other section for “start” behaviors focusing on rewards and relationships and – while that’s useful for sure, I don’t think that’s really the area most of us struggle with. At least not me.

The narration was enjoyable and easy to listen to, though I could see wanting a physical copy to refer back to more easily. I found myself leaving little bookmarks throughout so I could refer back to parts as I was implementing in my own classroom.

4 stars Pretty Great

    • I liked it well enough, but yeah, I do think these books are better in print. It’s just better to be able to make notes and easily refer back to them.
