This bestselling book focuses on helping teachers develop their own personal systems of discipline that will lead to productive and pleasant class room environments. Building Classroom Discipline presents and analyizes models of discipline, including two new models, developed by some of the most influential educational thinkers in the past 50 years. The book shifts the usual "behavior modification" theme to students learning control and teachers creating a sense of community in the classroom. The new trend of students taking more responsibility for their behavior is addressed, and the book offers a wealth of practical techniques for tailoring systems of discipline to suit teacher preferences, the realities of the school, and special needs of students.
