Preventing Classroom Discipline Problems. A Guide for Educators.
This book presents suggestions for preventing and handling discipline problems that can be immediately applied by the teacher, or by teacher-educators working with teachers and prospective teachers. The book can either be used as a "self-help guide" for the classroom teacher, or as a "training manual" for teacher-educators and administrators. Each chapter offers an explanation of the discipline problem, a description of the skills needed to remedy the problem, actual reports from teachers who had these problems and learned coping skills, and training exercises and checklists. The book is divided into three parts: (1) Understanding the Problem and the Proper Approach; (2) Prevention: The Sources of Disruptive Behavior; and (3) Handling the Sources of Disruptive Behavior. An indexed, systematic list of sources of disruptive behavior and remedies are appended. (JD)
