Detrimental Effects of Mandated Models of Discipline on the Practice of Reflective Teaching.
Ashton, Patricia; Urquhart, Catherine
The prevailing concern for teacher and student accountability in education and increasing problems with student discipline have led some schools to adopt a single model of classroom discipline. For example, in one district in Florida, Lee Canter's model of assertive discipline, a behavioristic approach to classroom management, was mandated for use throughout the district. The purpose of this paper is, first, to discuss the detrimental effects of requiring teachers to adopt a single model of discipline on teachers' ability to engage in reflective practice and, second, to describe an alternative approach that would foster the development of classroom discipline through reflective practice.
