Teaching Discipline

Students board a school bus with the help of a teacher

What Is Discipline?

How teachers approach discipline can make all the difference between whether students feel safe or threatened in our schools, motivated or discouraged, successful or defeated. It can determine whether a classroom will be orderly or chaotic and whether students will learn or flounder. And it impacts whether teachers feel fulfilled or frustrated, whether they like their work, and whether they stay in the teaching profession.

Discipline is teaching students how to control themselves and behave in ways that allow them to be behaviorally, socially, and academically successful. The ideal combination of classroom management, behavioral management strategies, and teacher leadership style can teach students to self-regulate and set them up for success in, out of, and beyond the classroom.

Product description


"Every elementary school leader should read this book. Educators who work with their staff to apply its high-reaching yet practical strategies can make real strides toward ensuring positive, lasting academic and personal outcomes for students." -- Roger P. Weissberg "President and CEO of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)"

"This resource will help you lead staff and parents to see that discipline isn't something you do to children, but an opportunity for them to learn. I wish this book had been available in the early years of my career as a principal." -- Rita White "Principal of Riverwood Elementary School, Memphis, Tennessee"

"What do we want our school culture to be, and how do we create and maintain this culture? This book answers these important questions. The realistic strategies offered will resonate with leaders from all types of schools and make this book a training guide for practicing and aspiring school leaders." -- Dennis Copeland "Principal of Ironia Elementary School, Randolph, New Jersey"

For forty-five years, Robert (Chip) Wood has worked on behalf of children from preschool through eighth grade as a classroom teacher, teaching principal, and teacher educator. After studying at the Gesell Institute of Human Development early in his career, Chip made developmentally based teaching the center of his educational practice. His core belief: knowing what children at each age are developmentally capable of doing physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively enables respectful, successful teaching of all children no matter their life circumstances or cultural background. A co-developer of Responsive Classroom and co-founder of Northeast Foundation for Children (now Center for Responsive Schools), Chip has served as principal of two public schools and was co-founder of Greenfield Center School. He is a facilitator for the Center for Courage & Renewal and co-creator of Leading Together, an approach focused on strengthening the adult community of schools.
