Synopsis: A teacher's success throughout the school year is largely determined by the events of the first few weeks of school. In his highly successful book Discipline in the Secondary Classroom (more than 100,000 copies sold), classroom management guru Randall Sprick offers practical strategies for beginning the school year, organizing the classroom for success, and establishing rules and behavior expectations for students. He also provides scores of helpful tips gathered from successful classroom teachers or gleaned from the latest educational research.

Discipline in the Secondary Classroom is a treasure-trove of practical advice, tips, checklists, reproducibles, posters, and ready-to-use activities that will save teachers time and help them become more effective educators.

Both new and seasoned teachers will find this book invaluable for designing a management plan that prevents problems, motivates students, and teaches them to behave responsibly. Discipline in the Secondary Classroom includes nine chapters that cover everything from creating a vision for classroom behavior to modifying a student behavior plan as the school year progresses. Also included is a DVD featuring Dr. Sprick teaching two core topics from within the book:

  • How to finalize your classroom management plan and communicate it to students
  • How to reinforce positive behavior in students rather than react to negative behavior

From the Inside Flap: This practical resource gives teachers techniques for dealing immediately with classroom behavior problems and developing more effective discipline policies and procedures over time. Included are dozens of useful management forms, letters, and record sheets, plus a quick and easy guide to solving 42 specific misbehaviors.

Improving discipline procedures
The first nine chapters provide step-by-step procedures for setting up classroom management system to teach even the most disruptive students to become more self-disciplined and cooperative. Here's just an overview of each chapter:

Beginning a New Semester gives you a seven-step planning process to help clarity your expectations for students and develop a clear, consistent discipline procedure right from the start...including a Student Information Form for students to work on when they first enter the classroom.

Effective Grading Systems describes the features o fan effective system and details procedures for designing one of your own...including a Weekly Record Sheet for recording performance each day and a chart showing Point Values and Criteria for Specific Performance Points.

Teacher-Student Interactions provides ways to evaluate and modify the interactions you are having with students...including a helpful Monitoring Form.

Goal Setting give you strategies for working with students to pinpoint specific goals and responsibilities to be achieved...including Goal-Setting Forms for students with specific behavior problems.

Class-wide Motivational Systems illustrates three reinforcement systems that help improve the behavior and motivation of all students and give you steps for implementing such a system in your own classroom...including a filled-in sample Weekly Record Sheet showing behavior needing improvement.

The High-risk students gives you steps for designing an individualized motivational system for a problem student...including a Daily Report Card and Behavioral Contract.

Punishment consequences exposes some common misconceptions about punishment and provides guidelines for using consequences effectively to reduce misbehavior.

Classroom consequences offers a variety of consequences and procedures you can use as alternatives to sending students to the office...including a Behavioral Improvement Form for cases when a verbal reprimand is not sufficient.

School-Wide Discipline Policies outlines features of a comprehensive school discipline policy...including an Office Referral Form, a Student Referral Record, and a Record of Teacher Referrals

Troubleshooting specific problems.

And the final section of this unique "survival guide" provides techniques for dealing with 42 commonly encountered problems in the secondary classroom...including a description of each problem, contributing factors, and problem solving steps.

Here you'll find ready-to-use plans for responding effectively to problems such as:

  • Talking during lectures
  • Forgetting to bring books to class
  • Fighting
  • Not completing homework
  • Threatening to commit suicide
  • Making wisecracks
  • Feeling
  • "Picked-on" by the teacher
The techniques in this section are designed to be immediately useful in the classroom, while the entire book may be used chapter-by-chapter for long-term improvement in student discipline and motivation.
