From the Back Cover:

This unique, hands-on resource is packed with tested ideas and strategies to help you create a classroom environment where good conduct and high achievement are the norm???where students become self-motivated and take responsibility for their actions???and where you experience the satisfaction that only a career in education can bring!

For easy use, the Discipline Survival Kit is organized into nine key areas of classroom management and printed in a big 8? by 11-inch format for photocopying the scores of full-page forms, checklists, and other ready-to-use tools throughout.

An overview of the practical help you'll find in each section of this resource follows:

The discipline dilemma: Crowd Control or Self-Discipline explores your role as a classroom teacher and shows you how to become a successful classroom leader.

Getting Ready to Make a Good Impression gives you the organizational skills necessary to establish a positive learning environment on the first day and onward, from seating charts and greeting students at the door to establishing fair and enforceable rules.

Door to Door: Using Class Time Wisely shows you how to maximize class time and minimize disruptions by getting students organized and ready to learn from the moment they enter your classroom to the moment class ends (e.g., "The First and Last 10 Minutes of Class").

A Partnership Approach to Discipline contains ways to promote positive discipline practices by teaching your students how to relate better to you and to other adults (e.g., "20 Actions That Let Your Students Know You Care") and offers useful strategies on how to relate better to colleagues and parents (e.g., "Creating an Alliance with Parents").

Preventing Discipline Problems gives you the methods you need to increase positive behaviors and to decrease negative ones, from using behavioral contact to modeling appropriate behavior (e.g., "30 Ways to Promote On-Task Behavior").

Dealing with Problems Once They Occur helps you know what to do once a problem has occurred so that the disruption is kept to a minimum through early intervention, rewards, parental involvement, detention, and more.

Strategies for Solving Specific Problems provides up-to-date solutions to a broad range of situations that you're likely to encounter, from chronically ill students and bullies to class clowns (e.g., "Dealing with Cheating Once It Has Occurred").

Moving Beyond Crowd Control to Promote Self-Discipline shows how to get even your most uninspired and difficult students to become learners who take responsibility for their own actions (e.g., "Preparing Lessons That Encourage Positive Behaviors," "Giving Students a Voice in the Classroom," and more).

The Most Important Factor in Discipline: The Teacher focuses on the important role teachers play in the smooth running of any classroom and how to take an active role in reaching your potential as an educator.

In the author's own words, "Without a mannerly classroom environment, no lesson, no matter how creative, how beautifully planned, or how artfully delivered, can be successful. There are many ways to help students learn to be successful while managing their own actions." You'll find hundreds of them in this resource.
