Discipline: There Are Alternatives! A Handbook for Elementary Teachers and Principals.
Coy, Stanley Curtis
The 15 chapters of this handbook for teachers and administrators draw together the results of discipline research and a number of successful programs and policies from around the country. Chapter 1 considers curriculum deficiencies, family problems, and diet as causes of disruptive behavior. The second chapter describes the characteristics of disruptive youth and suggests a method for assessing student disruptiveness. Chapter 3 presents a series of overlays used in an inservice program for developing good disciplinary practices in teachers. The teacher's responsibility to set a good example is noted in chapter 4. Several approaches to classroom management are covered in chapter 5. Chapters 6 and 7 treat behavior modification and student behavior contracts. The value of eye contact is emphasized in chapter 8. The 9th and 10th chapters cover detention and suspension. A system of merits and demerits is proposed in the next chapter. Disciplining the angry child is pondered in chapter 12. Chapter 13 deals with corporal punishment. Chapter 14 contemplates the relationship between school climate and discipline. Chapter 15 recommends synthesizing a discipline policy appropriate to the individual situation from the handbook's alternatives and reviews the "Child's Bill of Rights." The bibliography cites 34 sources. (PGD)
