This practical book examines models of classroom management by discipline, system, and instruction. Written in an easy-to-read, clearly understandable style, it reviews the latest research on classroom management, addresses the current INTASC standards (nationally-recognized benchmarks for effective teaching), and offers readers a solid foundation for selecting one of the models presented to suit their own style and need. Case studies and scenarios place the reader into real classrooms with real learners, giving them a “snapshot” of these models in action. Coverage includes: classroom management as discipline (behavioral approaches, assertive discipline, positive discipline, and cooperative discipline); classroom management as system (reality therapy and choice therapy, discipline with dignity, building community, and classroom organization); classroom management as instruction (inner discipline, skillstreaming, conflict resolution and peer mediation, and judicious discipline); and developing a personal system (classroom management in a diverse society, and creating a personal system). An excellent resource for teachers of children of all ages and from all backgrounds; its comprehensive glossary and its coverage of INTASC standards makes this an invaluable reference tool.
