Teacher Discipline
TeachersDiscipline: the process by which individual and group order is maintained in a classroom, home or society. Discipline: Through out history discipline has taken many forms. It varied from society to society and time to time. Often it was harsh and and deadly and at other times it was understanding and corrective. In essence it is the process by which individuals and groups maintained order in a classroom, home or society. You as a teacher are responsible for the way the class operates and functions. Never allow a minor situation to grow into a confrontation. No learning can take place if the atmosphere is chaotic and uneasy.
