Positive Discipline in the Classroom

Today's classrooms are filled with children of varied backgrounds, and subject to many intrusive influences. How can teachers foster the essential skills and attitudes for success in their students? In "Positive Discipline in the Classroom, parenting experts Jane Nelsen, Lynn Lott, and H. Stephen Glenn address the popular concept of class meetings, where students and teachers discuss moral, ethical, and behavioral issues, and work together to solve problems. Students learn a number of social skills through the class-meeting process. They learn to listen, take turns, hear different points of view, negotiate, communicate, and take responsibility for their own behavior. It is only when students have these skills and attitudes--the "real "basics"--that reading, writing, and arithmetic can be used meaningfully in their lives.Inside Positive Discipline in the Classroom are chapters on such topics as: - The Positive Discipline Dream - Building Blocks for Successful Class Meetings - Effective Problem-Solving Skills - Classroom Management Skills - Teachers Helping Teachers--Problem-Solving Steps Using these, and other well-presented guidelines, teachers and parents can create a classroom climate that enhances academic learning, and teaches life-skills that are essential to every aspect of a child's future.
