Assertive Discipline: Positive Behavior Management for Today's Classroom
Succeeding With Difficult Students
Lee Canter's Assertive Discipline workbook
I use this approach and it is very effective. You can also find an overview
of other models in "Building Classroom Discipline" by C.M. Charles. You might
also be interested in Thomas Lickona's book "Educating for Character". This
book has influenced me quite a bit in seeing my role as one of providing some
influence in terms of positive human qualities.
Hope this helps. I was always apprehensive about teaching because of this
issue--but if you have a system, work it consistently and keep with it--you
will find confidence and be the master of your ship! (and with a crew that is
happy to be on the voyage with you!) Sincerely, Teri Brudnak
