Using methods and techniques drawn from these models, the authors create a new model, "The Three Faces of Discipline," that arranges the best methods on a power continuum called the Teacher Behavior Continuum, or TBC. It's a power continuum of general behaviors that range from child centered to teacher controlling actions and it helps teachers analyze their own philosophy of discipline and understand how to create and maintain an orderly, predictable, and caring climate for young adolescents. The TBC shows clearly the degree of power necessary to orchestrate effective discipline practices in a middle level school. With its lively vignettes and clear writing style, the book is the ideal guide for all educators interested in creating a developmentally appropriate environment that maximizes learning for young adolescents. In this guide you find the most comprehensive collection of practical methods and techniques from today's most widely-used discipline models - TET, Glasser, Dreikurs, Assertive Discipline, Behavior Analysis, and more. Also included is an inventory teachers can take to help determine which discipline models best fit their own value systems. For any teacher or educator.
