It outlines the difficulties confronting teachers trying to manage students' misbehaviour in schools and describes four types of student who can be helped to behave responsibly.In The Developmental Management Approach , Ramon Lewis explains in detail how students' behaviour can be categorised and how techniques can be introduced to deal with each category, however challenging the behaviour might be. The book goes on to provide a framework for a long term commitment by teachers to productive interactions with students.
