Discipline in the Classroom. From Today's Education, NEA Journal; Selected Articles of Continuing Value to Elementary and Secondary School Teachers.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
Increasing student unrest, coupled with the acute problems of the inner city, indicate that the problem of maintaining pupil discipline is gathering intensity. This document contains 34 articles about discipline that have been published in Today's Education: NEA Journal since 1942. Articles applicable to both the primary and the secondary levels suggest that a better curriculum may lead to better discipline. Creative teaching, knowledge of a student's likes and dislikes, and the avoidance of riducule can also lead to fewer discipline problems. Articles pertaining directly to the elementary level stress the benefits of teaching self-discipline at an early age. The disturbed child in the classroom is also covered. The articles dealing with secondary school students consider discipline problems of classroom groups and problems with individuals. Thirteen classroom incidents are included to give a dimension of actual experience in handling specific problems. (Author/LN)
