Without a professional strategic attitude, position, and action, a teacher simply does not have the tools to manage a discipline problem, much less the entire class. And it's important to the whole school that teacher attitude, position, and action be uniform and consistent. This book will help you and teachers...
- Understand exactly how students' primary and secondary needs can and do influence behaviors in the classroom and at home.
- Develop professional attitudes toward discipline problems — and learn the laws and principles of managing people which teach us the predictable responses of students to our actions.
- Adopt a strategic position in discipline situations which facilitates success rather than causes academic failure.
- Acquire specific actions which can be employed immediately in discipline situations.
