Calling on more than 26 years of experience, Patricia Bourne explores, in accessible and sincere fashion, this pairing of the practical and philosophical in K-6 general music. Go inside the classroom to discover the who (students) and what (curriculum and methodology) of music education, along with concrete suggestions for how to navigate the landscape once you're "in." The real-world considerations of classroom management and additional responsibilities, such as ensembles and the performance expectations that come with them, are addressed in detail, as is the subject of finding and succeeding in "the" position. As Will Schmid writes, "[this] is the most practical and inspiring music education book I have read in a long time. Whether you are a pre-service college student, a beginning music teacher, or even a veteran educator in need of recharging your batteries, this book will become a valued mentor and trail guide."

In this revised and updated 4th edition, Discipline with Dignity provides in-depth guidance for implementing a proven approach to classroom management that can help students make better choices and teachers be more effective. Emphasizing the importance of mutual respect and self-control, the authors offer specific strategies and techniques for building strong relationships with disruptive students and countering the toxic social circumstances that affect many of them, including dysfunctional families, gangs, and poverty. Educators at all levels can learn * The difference between formal and informal discipline systems and when to use each. * The role of values, rules, and consequences. * How to address the underlying causes of discipline problems that occur both in and out of school. * What teachers can do to defuse or prevent classroom disruptions and disrespectful behavior without removing students from the classroom. * Why traditional approaches such as threats, punishments, and rewards are ineffective--and what to do instead. * How to use relevance, teacher enthusiasm, choice, and other elements of curriculum and instruction to motivate students. * How to reduce both teacher and student stress that can trigger power struggles. With dozens of specific examples of student-teacher interactions, Discipline with Dignity illustrates what you can do--and not do--to make the classroom a place where students learn and teachers maintain control in a nonconfrontational way. The goal is success for all, in schools that thrive.
