Classroom Management Plan (revisited)
Dreikurs believes that democratic teachers are more likely to help students become self-disciplined.
Rudolf Dreikurs, 1968
Discipline with Dignity, Curwin & Mendler, 1992
1. Do not manufacture power struggles by the way you teach.
2. Avoid being “hooked in” by the student.
3. Move into a private (and out of a public) encounter.
4. Calmly acknowledge the power struggle.
5. Validate the student’s feelings and concerns.
6. Keep the focus on the student’s choice, and simply state the consequence (repeating if necessary).
7. Put your emotional energy into constructive matters.
What Do I Do When...? How to Achieve Discipline with Dignity in the Classroom, Allen N. Mendler, 1992.

2. Simply state the rule and consequence.
3. Be physically close: Use the power of proximity
4. Make direct eye contact.
5. Use a soft voice.
6. Don’t embarrass the student in front of the class.
7. Be firm, but anger free when giving the consequence.
8. Don’t accept excuses, bargaining or whining
