A Proactive Approach to Discipline: Six Professional Development Modules for Educators.
Swick, Kevin J.
This publication is for assisting teachers in acquiring or renewing the skills involved in carrying out a proactive approach to productive discipline and classroom management. Each of the six professional development modules presented deals with a specific concept: (1) the meaning of discipline; (2) the meaning of classroom management; (3) a proactive approach to discipline; (4) a proactive approach to classroom management; (5) a proactive approach to teacher-student interaction; and (6) teacher behavior: a key to effective discipline. Each module, intended to help teachers clarify, explore, and refine their skills relating to each of the concepts, includes one or more definitions of the particular concept, a discussion of the context of the issues involved in implementing the concept, and a challenge or task for teachers to use in applying the concept to their teaching.
