Classroom management section 4

In this section there are further websites to help you establish a good working relationship with students so that there is a respectful and productive aspect to clasroom interactions. We look at William Glasser's Choice Theory and the Quality Teacher as well as Restitution in the Classroom from Diane Gossan and some details about The Incredible Years Programme.


This website introduces us to William Glasser's Choice Theory, Total Behaviour, The Quality School and the Quality Classroom and much more. The Principles of Choice Theory can be used in the classroom to teach students that they have choices how to behave all of the time. They have full control over the choices they make every waking moment of their day.


 This a blog on Models of Discipline. It has information on Glasser, Conin, Canter, Skinner and Dreikurs.


  This great site (HoB - hHome of Bob)is a Classroom Management Directory and has lots of interesting ideas around classroom intereventions to stimulate the thinking of new and not so new teachers who want to improve their teaching and have a non coercive relationship with their students while still maintaining discipline within the classroom.


This is a nice website from Concept Classrooms giving the theory both Cooperative and Colaborative Learning as well as suggesting how you could use the strategies within your existing classroom teaching approach e.g. multiple intelligence, constructivism ets


 This is a blog from the the Reflective Educator. It is based onthe  teachings and book on Restitution written by Diane Gossan. Diane uses the principles of Choice Theory and Reality Therapy in her system Restitution in the Classroom.The role of a teacher should be to monitor student behaviour and to act as a feedback mechanism so that the students learn from their mistakes. Students will make mistakes, and you have to let them make those mistakes. You also need to provide them opportunities to make amends for the mistakes they have made.

This Classroom Management Resource site literally has hundreds of ideas to help teachers to structure the management of their classrooms so that teaching can proceed in the manner the teacher chooses and that pupils will know what the appropriate behaviour is expected from them so that learning can take place.


The "Incredible Years" is a series of interlocking, evidence-based programs for parents, children, and teachers,supported by over 30 years of research. The goal is to prevent and treat young children's behavior problems and promote their social, emotional, and academic competence. The programmes are used worldwide in schools, and have been shown to work across cultures and socioeconomic groups. In Ireland programmes have been run by NEPS, HSE, and trainers from the Education Centre Network.


Each September, teachers face the perennial challenge of maintaining an orderly classroom. They must make sure students are "on task" and learning. They must find ways to keep behavior problems to a minimum. And they must decide how to deal with those discipline problems that inevitably arise. Of course, there is no simple recipe. Education Update interviewed a number of experts on classroom management. Here's a summary of their advice
