In Practical Application of Classroom Management Theories into Strategies, author George R. Taylor outlines the specific skills educators require for successful classroom management and behavior-control strategies. Research supports the premise that knowledge of effective classroom management techniques and strategies is essential in helping teachers to effectively deal with inappropriate, aggressive, and/or unacceptable classroom behaviors. For new teachers, classroom management is especially critical. In the book the following key elements are named as the cornerstone of successful classroom management for new, as well as seasoned, teachers: 1) how to manage children from diverse backgrounds, 2) how to employ effective strategies to deal with various types of behavior problems, 3) how to effectively assess and diagnose behavioral problems, 4) how to seek professional services, 5) how to effectively communicate with parents, and 6) how to recognize the ways cultural differences impact behavior. The success of these strategies will depend upon the teacher's demonstration of appropriate models, maintenance of a democratic environment, and a proactive approach.

Discipline with Dignity details an affirming approach to managing the classroom that promotes respect for self and others. This completely updated 3rd edition offers practical solutions that emphasize relationship building, curriculum relevance, and academic success. The emphasis is on preventing problems by helping students to understand each other, work well together, and develop responsibility for their own actions, but the authors also include intervention strategies for handling common and severe problems in dignified ways. Filled with real-life examples and authentic teacher-student dialogues, Discipline with Dignity is a comprehensive and flexible system of prevention and intervention tools that shows how educators at all levels can *Be fair without necessarily treating every student the same way. *Customize the classroom to reflect today's highly diverse and inclusive student population. *Seek students' help in creating values-based rules and appropriate consequences. *Use humor appropriately and effectively to respond to abusive language. *Fine-tune strategies to resolve issues with chronically misbehaving students and "ringleaders" or bullies. This book is not simply a compendium of strategies for dealing with bad behavior. It is a guide to helping students see themselves in a different way, to changing the way they interact with the world. The strategies innate to this approach help students make informed choices to behave well. When they do, they become more attuned to learning and to understanding how to use what they learn to improve their lives and the lives of others--with dignity.
