Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Larry Jacobs on Education Talk Radio, this time about effective and respectful discipline practices in schools. Here are a few topics we touched on:
- Why is it important to think about teaching discipline?
- What is discipline and how is it connected with (and different from) classroom management?
- What are shifts that teachers can make to help discipline be more positive?
- How are the teaching of discipline and academics connected?
To learn more about effective and respectful discipline strategies or to consider professional development on this topic, check out the Effective Management and Discipline section of my website.The Well-Balanced Teacher and The First Six Weeks of School. His latest book, Learning to Choose, Choosing to Learn: The Key to Student Motivation and Achievement was the ASCD member book for April, 2016.
