5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a three-dimensional approach to handling hostility in the school that emphasizes methods of prevention, methods of action, and methods of resolution. Chapter 1, "The Problem of Violence," discusses the problem of violence in the schools and society, and considers how violence, aggression, and hostility have affected society and the schools. Chapter 2, "The Importance of Values and Principles," considers changing schools so that they promote, model, value, and teach according to principles and values. It recommends removing violent interventions that promote aggression and hostility and making nonviolent values the center of the entire school operating system. Chapter 3, "Strategies for the Teacher," outlines strategies for teachers to use to help students change their choices about aggressive feelings. These strategies address ways to perceive, treat, and teach students, with a focus on controlling violent student behavior, diffusing potentially violent situations, and teaching alternatives to violence. Chapter 4, "Teaching Students Alternatives to Violence," describes specific ways for students to control aggression and choose nonviolent choices for resolving problems. Chapter 5, "Creating Safe Schools: 25 Options for Increasing Safety," offers specific short-term and long-term steps to make schools safer from violence and provides 25 ways to address immediate safety issues facing schools.

Discipline with dignity for challenging youth by Allen N Mendler( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging students can be hard to influence and harder to change. Rules mean little to them, rewards and punishments may have only temporary results, and even consequences that can teach better behavior are often ineffective. This book offers a number of new concepts and strategies that have evolved from the authors' efforts to find better ways to help educators assist their most challenging students. These strategies are based upon five principles: (1) Educators are responsible for teaching all students; (2) educators should view difficult behavior as opportunities to educate for change, reserving leverage for excessively disruptive or dangerous situations; (3) the more students are motivated, the less they need disciplining; (4) discipline is just another form of instruction; and (5) educators should have numerous strategies and lots of heart for success. Strategies and concepts include the difference between effort and achievement, three types of interventions, threat versus challenge, seven goals for successful discipline, strategies for fighting faculty resistance, strategies for fighting student resistance, and strategies for fighting resistance within ourselves. Each strategy is thoroughly explained in context to help educators gain practical understanding. An appendix contains a case study of a school discipline plan. (Contains 63 references.) (Rt)
