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.
