Opportunities and Options in Classroom Management ; helps teachers motivate students through active involment in their own learning and discipline processes with the goals of acquiring learning, self-management, and a repertoire of responsible behaviors. This book is uniquely organized around four major components, emphasizing the integration of effective teaching, proactive preventive strategies, practical corrective strategies, and positive supportive techniques. A view of effective teaching as a prevention tool in classroom management permeates this text. Proven discipline approaches are woven together rather than presented as discrete entities. Based on research and focused on practical application, this text includes mnemonic devices and cognitive maps to aid student retention and instructional organization; clear examples and scenarios to facilitate implementation; strategies tested across cultural, ability, and learning style differences; and assessment exercises to check thorough understanding of the concepts. This text offers examples and guidelines for developing classroom management plans, first day/first week strategies that prevent future discipline problems, and practical intervention tools geared to various levels of serious of misbehaviors.
