Being Good by Steven Wolk

Book Description

The increasing emphasis of civic leaders and policy makers on teaching for character and morality has a familiar but subtle undertone: Kids these days are out of control. The issues of character and discipline, of encouraging good behavior and improving bad behavior, writes Steven Wolk, are "woven together like a double-helix strand of DNA." In Being Good, Wolk helps you decode the issues 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 skiils are tested. Wolk 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, integrate character and curriculum to engage critical literacy skills, and design seating plans that encourage cooperation and positive interaction.
