Discipline in the Secondary Classroom: A Positive Approach to Behavior Management, 3E

A teacher's success throughout the school year is largely determined by the events of the first few weeks of school. In this third edition of his highly successful book, DISCIPLINE IN THE SECONDARY CLASSROOM, classroom management guru Randall Sprick offers practical strategies for beginning the school year, organizing the classroom for success, and establishing rules and behavior expectations for students. He also provides helpful advice based on the latest educational research as well as scores of useful tips gathered from successful classroom teachers.

DISCIPLINE IN THE SECONDARY CLASSROOM 3E (Jossey-Bass, a Wiley brand; August 2013; $39.95; Paper; includes DVD; ISBN: 978-1-118-45087-1) is a treasure-trove of practical advice, tips, checklists, reproducibles, posters, and ready-to-use activities that will save secondary teachers time and help them become more effective educators. Both new and seasoned teachers will find the book invaluable for designing a management plan that prevents problems, motivates students, and teaches them to behave responsibly. The third edition includes nine chapters covering everything from creating a vision for classroom behavior and teaching expectations to motivating students and modifying behavior plans as the year progresses. The book is organized around Dr. Sprick’s acclaimed STOIC framework for training teachers:

Structure the classroom for success

Teach expectations directly to students

Observe/supervise

Interact positively with students

Correct chronic misbehavior
