Discipline without Anger: A New Style of Classroom Management
Campbell, Doug
Rowman & Littlefield Education
Ever since the first schools opened their doors, teachers have struggled to find ways to successfully deal with misbehaving students. Many have found nothing but stress and frustration in their attempts to bring order to their classrooms. Unfortunately, this problem is not going away. As times and students change, teachers are finding that old methods of classroom management are no longer working. The time has come for teachers to learn a different style of classroom management. They can no longer rely on old strategies of anger and intimidation. "Discipline Without Anger" shows teachers how to successfully manage their classes so that they can be free to teach without having to become bullies to keep order. There are many potentially great teachers today who are teaching poorly (or not teaching at all) because of weaknesses or fears in the area of classroom management. As a result, our schools and students are paying a price. It is time that teachers learn how to successfully handle student misbehavior and finally reach their full potential.
