Discipline without Yelling

Discipline is about training, not yelling.  I've written down some of my thoughts on how teachers can reach the desired results for student behavior without being loud, sarcastic, or mean.

Hi. My name is Constance Sanders. I enjoyed some highlights that was mentioned in your post. Do your behavioral techniques apply for pubkic schooling or all schools that were created to treat misbehaved students? I do most of my field clinicals at private alternative schools, where students have been mentally, physically, and emotionally abused.  These students are allowed to lash-out and curse-out their teachers with not much discipline involved. How can new and current teachers cope with these behaviors in a daily basis without applying discipline. Keep in mind, these teachers are more like counselors, and their main focus is providing treatment to these students.

My name is Omar Munguia, I am an International ESL/Bilingual teacher in Houston. I really enjoyed your article on discipline without shouting. I am 50 years old, and I was a victim of the yelling, sarcasm, and other inappropriate forms of discipline. At that time, no one noticed that I was an ADHD kid, maybe because nobody knew about it. I was born left-handed and teachers forced me to become right-handed and in the end, it turned out to be a good thing for me because I can now do things with both hands! But, what you say is true, as teachers we must find different ways to get our students attention, and many times it is related to our own instructional practices. Keeping students engaged and interested in our teaching will help avoid discipline problems.
