Classroom Discipline. Research Roundup.
Research Roundup, v5 n2 Feb 1990
Recent research in classroom discipline tends to show that discipline is a by-product of effective instruction and classroom management. The five publications reviewed in this annotated bibliography explore aspects of the complex classroom environment that relate to student discipline. Walter Doyle's chapter on "Classroom Organization and Management" in the third edition of the "Handbook of Research on Teaching" synthesizes the relationship among management, student engagement, and discipline. An Oregon School Study Council Bulletin, "The Challenge of Classroom Discipline," focuses on common principles of classroom discipline and urges educators to use and disseminate the available base of proven techniques. Jere Brophy and Mary Rohrkemper investigate teachers' strategies for dealing with the hostile-aggressive student. Timothy Turco and Stephen Elliott look at discipline from the other side, surveying students to discover what kinds of interventions are most acceptable to children. Finally, in "The Intern Teacher Casebook," details of early classroom conflicts are recorded by teachers in training along with commentary by outside observers. (MLF)
