In this funny and insightful book, Gary Rubinstein relives his own truly disastrous first year of teaching. He begins his teaching career armed only with idealism and romantic visions of teachin--and absolutely no classroom management skills. By his fourth year, however, he is named his school's "Teacher of the Year." As Rubinstein details his transformation from incompetent to successful teacher, he shows what works and what doesn't work when managing a classroom. Just a few of his ideas: Develop a teacher look. The teacher look says, "There's nothing you can do that I haven't already seen, so don't even bother trying." Show students that you are a "real" teacher by doing things they expect of real teachers, at least for a while. Be prepared to utter a decisive answer to anything within two seconds. Decisive answers inspire confidence. Any teacher--experienced or not--will enjoy this honest and humorous look at the real world of teaching and will come away with some very helpful ideas for classroom management. The book is used all over the country in teacher preparation programs. Ben Guest, Program Manager for the Mississippi Teacher Corps describes the book as "That rare classroom management book that is both thoughtful and realistic. It is also a great read, with parts that are laugh-out-loud funny."… (mere)

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I am a struggling new teacher, and I related to SO MUCH of what this book talked about. Only problem? This book was written by a teacher working with secondary students and I'm working with preschoolers. We are in astonishingly similar situations and I loved the humor in the writing, but much of the advice just wasn't applicable. Some of it certainly was. The ideas of being consistent and firm are ones I will be doing a much better job trying to implement. So I highly recommend this book to middle/high school teachers who are struggling, but if anyone has recs for more relevant preschool discipline and classroom management, those would be highly appreciated.

This was an enjoyable read, funny at times, validating at others. It wasn't however, the learning experience I thought it was going to be. If you are looking for a biography of sorts that is sweet and naive, pick this book up. If you are looking for sound, how-to advice of classroom management, this isn't the book for you. ( )

This one is good for a few laughs, and, it has a real cute cover, but don't expect much in the way of sound advice. At least half the book tells teachers what not to do, and funny little anecdotes about classroom fiascoes will make you smile and recall your own, but there's little advice as to how to become better at classroom management or engaging students in learning. While Rubinstein does encourage teachers to develop motivating learning activities, he fails to provide enough ideas to make this book a good resource for new or veteran teachers who would be better off reaching for other books on classroom management, such as First Class Teacher, or Lee Canter's books on Assertive Discipline which include many, many ideas for dealing with students who experience difficulty focusing on assignments and respecting adult authority.

When I saw the title Reluctant Disciplinarian: Advice on classroom management from a softy who became (eventually) a successful teacher, I had to smile. I've been a teacher going on 20 years now--and I would definitely consider myself a softy. The process of "becoming" a teacher has been a challenge, primarily because of the discipline aspect. While Rubinstein writes with a conversational, honest tone that is enjoyable to read, I'm not sure the suggestions would have made me a better, more confident teacher. Ideas like "real teachers use textbooks" and the need for adopting a "teacher persona" made me raise an eyebrow (or two). Becoming a confident, effective teacher has been about authenticity and flexibility to me. I'd suggest this book as one for some laughs about the foibles we make as we learn to teach, but less so as a guidebook. ( )

Thi book is fantastic for anyone new to teaching. I will be graduating next year with my teaching certification and I have a feeling this book is going to come in handy. I read the whole book in one sitting and loved every page of it. The author is hilarious and it makes me feel like it's ok to screw up because, most likely, everyone else screwed up in the beginning also. The book doesn't go in depth into major discipline issues and how to combat them, but it sheds light on many topics that I haven't even thought about, nor have my education classes taught anything about. The book explains real situations and ways to deal with them in a funny and entertaining way. Love it! ( )
