In this book, teachers will encounter 10 student archetypes developed by Vicki Gill as a way to understand student behavior. Though students never fall neatly into one category, Gill has included classroom management tips for working with students who exhibit these types of behaviors in your classroom. Ranging from rebels, invisibles to perfectionists, the archetypes represent students who may present challenges, but also have lots to teach us.

"Vickie Gill makes so much sense, I found myself nodding in agreement. This book leaves you glad that you read it and is one that teachers will pass on or recommend to their colleagues."
Lowndes Middle School, Valdosta, GA
"While there is no pat formula involved, the approach does help teachers identify and more effectively work with common patterns of behavior and learning: add case histories and you have an excellent real-world survey."
