Provides sound frameworks that can be used to evaluate six tried-and-true discipline models (Dobson, Canters, Jones, Dreikurs, Glasser, and Gordon). This reader-friendly book offers pre-service and in-service teachers useful strategies and real-life examples for classroom success and survival, and is an invaluable resource for any educator.
Overviews theory and practice in classroom management and discipline, for education students and teachers. Early chapters present several theoretical frameworks within which each of six models of classroom management can be categorized, and describe six models that have withstood the test of time, covering assertive discipline, positive discipline, social discipline, reality therapy, and teacher effectiveness training. Later chapters explore prevention of problem behaviors, offer suggestions teachers can use immediately, and discuss school violence. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
