Discipline with Dignity
Educators know that we must have safe schools. Teaching and reinforcing responsible human behavior is the core of Discipline with Dignity. How do you achieve discipline and positive behaviors in a classroom or school?
Discipline with Dignity offers specific ways to involve students in defining classroom procedures, rules, and consequences based on values or principles compatible with learning. Curwin and Mendler identify strategies for working with children who are physically aggressive and explode without provocation. The basic strategies include prevention, action, and resolution; the authors expand on those ideas and share examples and practical applications for educators.
Curwin and Mendler explain the principles and related strategies that are as applicable to the problems faced in inner-city schools as they are rural and suburban schools.
Current educational initiatives that improve both achievement and behavior, including cooperative learning, multiple intelligences, constructivism, inclusion, and brain-based learning, are all compatible with Discipline with Dignity and attest to the continuing relevance of the strategies involved. More than 10 years after first publishing Discipline with Dignity, Curwin and Mendler have added a new introduction in which they reflect on why and how their approach to discipline works in today's society. Treating students and educators with dignity will never go out of fashion.
