Building Classroom Discipline helps teachers develop personal systems of discipline tailored to their individual philosophies and personalities, as well as to the needs of their schools and communities. The text presents the latest developments in classroom discipline, as well as historical and transitional models of discipline, developed by some of the most astute educational thinkers of the past half century. Comprehensive enough to serve as a primary text, yet compact enough for use with other texts, this book can be used for courses in discipline and classroom management, learning and instruction, methods and teaching, and educational psychology.
