The leading text in the field, this book analyzes 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 by educational thinkers over the past 60 years and shows how they can be applied in realistic situations. A unique contribution of the text is that the present-day theorists listed also coordinate with Professor Charles to ensure accuracy in the presentation of their models. Teachers are motivated to create a structure of positive discipline based on the most effective elements from traditional and current disciplinary approaches.

Building Classroom Discipline helps teachers develop personal systems of discipline tailored to their individual philosophies and personalities, as well as to the needs of their schools and communities. The text presents the latest developments in classroom discipline, as well as historical and transitional models of discipline, developed by some of the most astute educational thinkers of the past half century. Comprehensive enough to serve as a primary text, yet compact enough for use with other texts, this book can be used for courses in discipline and classroom management, learning and instruction, methods and teaching, and educational psychology.
