Bring positive behavior to your school through strong, consistent, and positive discipline. Experienced administrators Chip Wood and Babs Freeman-Loftis offer practical strategies for building a safe, calm, and respectful school climate—strategies based on deep respect for children and for staff. See how to:

  • Establish signals that get children’s quick, quiet attention anytime and anywhere in school
  • Craft school rules that children take seriously—even cherish
  • Create peaceful recesses, lunchtimes, hallways, and bus rides
  • Give staff techniques for teaching and reinforcing expected behavior
  • Help children with especially challenging behaviors avoid discipline problems
  • Give staff methods for quickly restoring positive behavior when a discipline problem comes up
  • Involve parents in improving school discipline

Each chapter targets one key discipline issue and starts with a checklist of action steps. For comprehensive discipline reform, go through the chapters in order. For help with a particular challenge, go right to the chapter you need. (Scroll down for links to the table of contents and sample chapters from this book.)

“Responsive School Discipline is an immensely practical book for educators in the trenches. The authors’ experience as principals is invaluable as they provide many concrete ways to promote a positive, safe environment in schools. Highly recommended!”
