About this title


This text offers a balanced and comprehensive approach to show how a variety of research-supported and practical strategies and techniques are used to prevent and correct misbehavior and to help achieve the long-term aim of developing self-discipline. Rather than focusing on untested models of classroom discipline this book presents a more balanced and comprehensive approach to classroom discipline, balancing the perspective of character educators and the perspective of those who are concerned about managing and correcting misbehavior. This text encourages teachers to reflect upon critical issues of classroom discipline and their beliefs, recognize multiple perspectives toward classroom discipline, and be able to select and apply the most effective techniques that not only prevent and correct misbehavior but also serve the long-term aim of developing self-discipline.

From the Back Cover:

This is the most researched-based, clearly written and well-organized book on the subject of classroom management and disciple that I've come across in years. Every time I finished reading a chapter, I just wanted to shout, 'Yes, yes, yes!
Randy L Brown, University of Central Oklahoma

In this book, George Bear has taken a sweeping and informative approach to guiding educators in how to reduce misbehavior and increase responsible behavior in students. The historical perspective is both impressive and helpful. But it is their integration of discipline with character education and social-emotional learning that pushes the frontiers of behavior management in an important way. To understand behavior as developmental and to approach it pro-actively and preventively is a strategy and philosophy that will serve schools, educators, students, and society well.
Marvin W. Berkowitz, Ph.D, University of Missouri-St. Louis

George Bear's book is destined to be a classic in its field. Comprehensive in coverage, exceptionally well-grounded in research, and packed with clear, best-practice recommendations, it will set a new standard for books on discipline. Anyone concerned about the character of the next generation will appreciate Bear's distinctive emphasis on self-discipline as the core character strength essential for orderly classrooms, diligent work, and responsible citizens.
Tom Lickona, author, Character Matters, and director, Center for the 4th and 5th Rs (Respect and Responsibility)

This book is grounded not only in a theoretical base for understanding how self-discipline and classroom management may be developed with respect for the needs of the individual as well as society, but the practical nature complete with excellent illustrations and implimentation tips allows teachers to understand what they can do to facilitate the growth of their students.
Merle J. Schwartz, Director of Education and Training - Character Education Partnership
