Ante Up: Reconsidering Classroom Management Philosophies so Every Child Is a Winner
Early Child Development and Care, v174 n6 p565-574 Aug 2004
Anti-social behaviors in children are on the rise, and many schools and classrooms are implementing pro-social and anti-violent curriculums to combat these behaviors. However, before they implement new curricula, schools and teachers should first examine their classroom management strategies, for a change in paradigms of classroom management must be the first step in promoting pro-social behaviors. This paper uses a gambling metaphor to examine the link between assertive discipline and anti-social behaviors, and provides alternatives to a classroom management approach that controls and marginalizes children.
