Cooperative Discipline: Classroom Management that Promotes Self-Esteem.
Albert, Linda
This multi-media package is designed for inservice training workshops for elementary and secondary teachers. The focus is not only on techniques for solving immediate discipline problems but also on long-term strategies that encourage appropriate deportment by reinforcing cooperative behavior on the part of students. Using a comprehensive approach, "Cooperative Discipline" deals with all three discipline types: corrective, preventive, and supportive. It addresses the topics of student motivation, avoiding and defusing confrontations, ways to reinforce desirable behavior, building student self-esteem, when and how to involve parents and others, and how to discipline cooperatively. The training is organized into two separate components, an overview session and skill-building sessions. The overview session introduces the program concepts, offers a video overview of the program, and begins training in specific techniques; the six skill-building sessions immerse teachers in specific classroom strategies. In these 1- to 2-hour workshops, teachers develop proficiency in cooperative discipline techniques. (JD)
