A Constructivist "discipline" guide. A must read!

by PreserviceTeacher on Jul 11, 2007

I am reading this book after having read other books on discipline, specifically Teaching With Love and Logic and The Essential 55. Both of the other books I read assume that a major goal of being a teacher is gaining control of the classroom, and underlying this, assume that students need to be controlled. Kohn looks deeper, and offers suggestions (and examples) on how to create a classroom that minimizes the need for "management", since in these classrooms, the students feel safe, autonomous, and actually motivated to learn (since they have some say in what and how they learn). I HIGHLY recommend this book to pre-service teachers, new teachers, veteran teachers, and parents. I feel so much more prepared to be an excellent teacher after having read it. I also recommend discussing it with fellow teachers and parents.
