Promoting Effective Discipline in School and Classroom: A Practitioner's Perspective.
Grossnickle, Donald R.; Sesko, Frank P.
This practical self-help guide approaches the topic of student discipline from the practitioner's perspective. Chapter 1 prescribes a teamwork approach to schoolwide and classroom discipline, involving a schoolwide commitment to mutual respect among students and staff and positive classroom management by teachers. Chapter 2 offers, as practical advice, 40 brief "simple truths about school discipline." Chapter 3 presents a three-part systems approach to designing a comprehensive discipline program, and outlines 23 essential discipline program components. Chapter 4, "Establishing a Positive Approach," identifies guiding principles and specific steps toward promoting a more disciplined learning environment in schools. Chapter 5 outlines responsibilities of teachers and administrators in designing a preventive discipline program, and provides two illustrative case studies. Chapter 6 presents a schoolwide model for establishing a preventive approach, while Chapter 7 is an extensive discussion of discipline intervention by administrators and counselors. Chapter 8 provides a case study of the steps taken by a Chicago area high school in launching a schoolwide climate improvement project focusing on effective discipline. Nine appendixes provide sample documentation and administrative instruments for various aspects of a school discipline program.(TE)
