An Innovative Approach to Discipline and Management.
Yenchko, Anne; DeBeal, Marshall Kirk
The Effective Classroom Management and Discipline Strategies Graduate Program for Educators is organized around a series of core modules designed for use in inservice teacher education. The basic skills learned in these series of modules are communication (feedback, nonverbal, listening, self disclosure, problem solving, and conflict resolution), class meetings, accountability strategies, stress management, and role playing. All of the core modules contain a values clarification exercise enabling teachers to identify their individual starting place with these skills. A critical component of the values module is a Discipline Inventory, which helps teachers to identify their main interactional style with children. This inventory presents an orientation from which to work in developing skills for learning other styles. These basic skills are designed to be preventative management strategies for elimination of possible sources of conflict and dissension in the classroom. The second series of modules is organized under different teaching styles which may be oriented toward curriculum, interaction, or intervention. (JD)
