Abstract:

'Being Good' helps you decode the issues of character and discipline by offering practical ideas and research-driven theories that not only promote democratic values in your teaching but also show you how to use those values when your classroom management skills are tested. The author gives you examples of how practicing teachers evaluate and remedy "bad" behavior in ways that promote citizenship, encourage self-discipline, and motivate students toward learning and self-betterment. Plus he shows you how to prevent bad behavior by establishing a shared value system in your classroom that encourages students to monitor their own behavior.
