What Do You Do When...? A Handbook for Classroom Discipline Problems with Practical and Positive Solutions.
Gervais, Robert L.; Dittburner, Delos A.
This book addresses specific classroom management problems. Similar problems are grouped into chapters and are approached from the classroom teacher's point of view. Each problem is defined and discussed as to why it is a concern to a classroom teacher. This is followed by an analysis of the various approaches which a teacher can use to solve the problem. A summary of solutions is also provided at the end of each section. Chapters are on: (1) problems that waste time; (2) teacher preparation; (3) missing classes; (4) talking in the classroom; (5) teacher-created problems; (6) establishing rapport with students and parents; (7) academic problems; (8) supervisory responsibilities; (9) confrontations with students; (10) knowing school policies; (11) dishonesty; (12) student and teacher attitudes; (13) social and personal problems; (14) punishment; and (15) severely handicapped students.
