Share Article

Illinois-based publisher ParentMagic, Inc. has been awarded Learning Magazine’s prestigious Teachers’ Choice Award for its newest book, 1-2-3 Magic for Teachers.

1-2-3 Magic for Teachers, a new book that offers teachers simple methods for controlling and handling disruptive behavior in the classroom, has won Learning Magazine’s Teachers’ Choice Award. Learning Magazine introduced the first Teachers’ Choice Awards program in 1994. It recognizes products which excel in quality, instructional value, ease of use and innovation and has grown to become one of the most recognized and prestigious awards in the educational market. A team of teachers evaluates each product by actually using it in the classroom.

Since its release in October, 2004, 1-2-3 Magic for Teachers has sold more than 15,000 copies. Coauthored by clinical psychologist Dr. Thomas W. Phelan and Fairfax County, Virginia teacher, Sarah Jane Schonour, this book provides classroom teachers with straightforward, easy-to-use techniques for managing classroom behavior. Surveys repeatedly show that behavioral discipline is the number one concern among classroom teachers but, surprisingly, few teachers receive any specific, organized and thorough training in this area. Experienced educators are well aware of the fact that if challenging student behaviors go unchecked, the entire school year can be disrupted. These issues are successfully addressed by 1-2-3 Magic for Teachers.

According to its authors, 1-2-3 Magic for Teachers contains simple methods for controlling or eliminating disruptive behavior, encouraging and reinforcing constructive work habits in students, and understanding the effects of a teacher’s own personality on his or her teaching style. Specific chapters also deal with issues such as peer conflicts, tantrums, walking in the halls, assemblies, field trips, playground, arrival, dismissal and transitions.

1-2-3 Magic for Teachers is based on the best-selling parenting program, 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12, also authored by Dr. Phelan. In its book and video formats, 1-2-3 Magic has sold more than one million copies.
