The best-selling text in classroom discipline! This book synthesizes and summarizes the contributions of the leading authorities in discipline, to show how their theories and systems can be used by teachers to create structures of positive discipline. The text analyzes 18 models of school discipline developed, researched and tested by educational thinkers of the last half-century and shows how they can be applied in realistic situations. The theorists listed have carefully coordinated chapter contents with Dr. Carol Charles to ensure accuracy in the presentation of their models. Teachers are challenged to create a structure of positive discipline based on traditional and current disciplinary approaches that are suitable to their particular needs. New models by Budd Churchward and Marvin Marshall as well as a video of selected models (for adopters) is available with this edition. Related Titles: Elementary Classroom Management, 4/e Carol M.
