A self-monitoring program to integrate self-discipline instruction in the general curriculum for staff working with all students grades Kindergarten–12.
Lack of discipline is a common cause of ineffective instruction. Yet rarely is self-discipline taught in order to create an instructional atmosphere, one in which teacher and student are comfortable and productive. Author Dr. Dennis Knapcyzk, Indiana University, looks at classroom discipline as a curricular concern, comparable to teaching reading and math. In this book, he shows you how to present discipline to students by cueing them to performances by socially competent same age peers and incorporates discipline training into the general curriculum.
