Judicious (Character Education) Discipline.
Gathercoal, Paul; Nimmo, Virginia
This paper describes a philosophy and framework for classroom management and school discipline which represents a citizenship approach, based on the Bill of Rights, that teaches students about their rights and responsibilities for living and learning in a democratic society. The Judicious Discipline framework outlined in the paper could work well with most character-building curricula marketed by commercial publishers. The paper provides a brief summary of Judicious Discipline in action; discusses developing character through democratic culture; and describes and reports on an action research project implemented at an elementary school in Mankato, Minnesota which has been using Judicious Discipline for 5 years. Contains a table and 32 references. (BT)
