Title: CTR: BEYOND DISCIPLINE: FROM COMPLIANCE TO COMMUNITY
Description:
What is most remarkable about the assortment of discipline programs on the market today is the number of fundamental assumptions they seem to share. Some advocate the use of carrots rather than sticks; some may refer to punishments as "logical consequences." But virtually all take for granted that the teacher must be in control of the classroom, and what we need are strategies to get students to comply with the adult's expectations. In this path-breaking book, Alfie Kohn calls these premises into question and with them the very idea of classroom "management." Packed with stories from real classrooms around the country, seasoned with humor and grounded in a vision as practical as it is optimistic, this book shows how students are most likely to flourish in schools that have moved from collaborative problem solving - and beyond discipline.165 pages
