Overview

Educators need a balance between discipline theory and its practice in the classroom. This is especially important in today's educational climate, with its increased demands for teacher accountability. Tauber has designed this book for both those who are new to teaching and those who are already seasoned teachers but who have had little, if any, coursework in discipline. This book presents several sound frameworks that readers can use to evaluate six tried-and-true discipline models. Teachers need to select, learn, and implement a discipline model that best reflects how they feel students should be treated. Tauber explores a number of topics, some controversial, all quite relevant, concerning how teachers can prevent, as well as handle, problem behaviors. A chapter describing "A through Z" discipline suggestions can be immediately put into use.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
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)
From the Publisher
"Drawing on 30-plus years of experience in education as both a teacher and a counselor, Tauber presents a text for those who are new to teaching or who have had little coursework in discipline. In addition to expanding and updating the existing material, the fourth edition includes three new chapters on democracy and schooling, and how democracy impacts discipline; acting and discipline, and how teachers can use acting/performance skills to engage students and handle discipline problems; and the growing problem of bullying in schools." - Reference & Research Book News
