"What a fresh approach to classroom management! The problem-solving approach makes so much sense if you want a friendly, caring, and safe classroom. Examples in the book illustrate ways to navigate the difficult behaviors that create barriers to learning."
—Jennifer Lee Kumnick, School Social Worker
Clarke County School District, Athens, GA

Help students deal with anger, correct misbehavior, and prevent misunderstandings!

Effective discipline goes hand in hand with both proficient teaching and a caring classroom community. This third edition of Marilyn E. Gootman's bestseller shows novice and veteran teachers how to guide student behavior by developing positive, supportive relationships.

Gootman's approach to discipline focuses on two essentials: teaching students the skills of appropriate behavior and showing them how to avoid inappropriate behavior. Featuring summaries of key points at the end of each chapter, this revised edition offers a new chapter on establishing a caring classroom community, guidelines on how to handle cyberbullying, and an updated and expanded resource list featuring literature and programs on classroom discipline. Teachers can help children become good thinkers, good learners, and good classroom citizens by:

  • Setting realistic rules and expectations for conduct
  • Developing students' problem-solving techniques
  • Encouraging open communication to resolve disagreements
  • Creating partnerships with parents

By creating a nurturing environment in the classroom, teachers can make a difference in children's lives—and maintain their own enthusiasm and idealism!
