The Models of Discipline app focuses on providing practical and helpful information on how to manage day-to-day classroom discipline issues. Nine popular theoretical models of discipline from some of the leading contemporary behavior management and discipline theorists are included in this app, they are:
- William Rogers - William Glasser - Rudolf Dreikers - Fredric Jones - Fritz Redl & William Wattenberg - Jacob Kounin - Lee and Marlene Canter - Hiam Ginott - B. F. Skinner
Each of the models included in this app describes: - Key ideas about the model - Information explaining the model - General comments about the model - Finally, a section on how to apply the model in a classroom setting.
To assist in understanding what your approach to discipline might be, Teacher Matters has also created a self analysis tool which is designed to assist in discovering what discipline approach you tend to favor. The tool is called the Discipline Beliefs Inventory and is based on Wolfgang and Glickman’s research and is available from the website.
