Effective & Positive Discipline management in Classroom & in School

VIEWS: 472 PAGES: 8

‘Effective Management of the Discipline in class and in school’ is a cycle of interactive seminars for school principals, school counsellors and psychologists and teachers of all educational levels and fields. They were held in the first half of 2009 with a few hundred teachers from over a dozen schools of various levels – elementary schools, high schools, colleges and vocational schools in Sofia and around the country. In this paper we will make a short introduction into this important but rarely discussed side of school life, which according to statistics, takes up about half of the teachers’ time, and for the coping with which, they don’t have the necessary knowledge and skills. Thus they are left to rely on an intuitive approach based on trial and error. The experience of the author, derived from those seminars will be presented in the paper, along with the results and conclusions. We offer the author’s matrix from over two dozens of systematic approaches, unified in five big branches and will briefly introduce their main ideas and methods. We will present results from focus-groups with teachers and their disciplinary problems in class, along with teachers’ attitudes towards the students and the discipline. The suggested system of seminars, which is part of our bigger program ‘Effective school’ is open for implementation in all schools that find it useful.
