ECE 214 Creating Environments for Learning

Students learn concepts and strategies for preventing discipline problems as well as models of discipline for use if such problems occur in the early childhood/elementary classroom. Preventive strategies include organizing the classroom effectively, maintaining on-task behavior, positive interactions, developing and teaching rules and behavioral expectations, and ignoring attention-getting behavior. Discipline models reviewed by students include student-centered approaches including the Supportive Model and Transactional Analysis, and such teacher-directed approaches as Assertive Discipline and Behavior Modification.
