Help is on the Way: An Active Approach to Assisting Teachers with Management and Discipline Procedures.
MacNaughton, Robert; Johns, Frank
The Center for Productive School and Classroom Discipline at Cleveland State University was created to bring together the disparate and disorganized theories of classroom management and to provide assistence to teachers with persistent classroom control problems by developing teacher competencies. The Center has four objectives: (1) to provide information by offering graduate credit courses and presentations, publishing a newsletter, and maintaining a hotline for specific discipline problems; (2) to collect, classify, and evaluate all information on classroom discipline; (3) to design and develop materials; and (4) to provide a consulting service for local teachers. The instructional units that the Center offers concentrate on short-range procedures that are based on four theories: behavior modification, socio-emotional, group process, and management concepts. Between fifteen and twenty teachers and administrators work for the Center, making presentations, publishing the newsletter, acting as hotline consultants, and producing a multi-media management and discipline package.
