School Discipline and Self-Discipline: A Practical Guide to Promoting Prosocial Student Behavior
Bear, George G.
Guilford Publications
How can schools create safe, well-supervised classroom environments while also teaching students skills for managing their behavior on their own? This invaluable guide presents a framework for achieving both of these crucial goals. It shows how to balance external reinforcements such as positive behavior supports with social-emotional learning interventions. Evidence-based techniques are provided for targeting the cognitive and emotional processes that underlie self-discipline, both in classroom instruction and when correcting problem behavior. Describing how to weave the techniques together into a comprehensive schoolwide disciplinary approach, the book includes over a dozen reproducible forms, checklists, and assessment tools. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying. Contents include: (1) Classroom Management and School Discipline: Punishment and Its Positive Alternatives; (2) Managing Student Behavior with the Positive Behavioral Techniques of Schoolwide Positive Behavior Supports; (3) Self-Discipline and the Social and Emotional Learning Approach to School Discipline; (4) Strategies for Developing Self-Discipline (and a Positive School Climate); and (5) Preventing Behavior Problems.
