By examining the many programs and strategies that are available, creating an environment for effective education is a challenge whether it be for an entire school or a specific classroom. To assist educators in developing effective programs and strategies, numerous documents have been prepared.
- Guide To School Discipline – A Word document, PowerPoint document, and web tutorial exist to provide teachers with a number of research driven strategies and practical ideas (Karadimos, 2005). They are all available via the tutorial.
- Behavior Identification and Adjustment – This Word document exists as a tool to aid educators in their attempt to maintain teacher-student lines of communication, create win-win situations for teachers and students, and allow teachers to remain the central disciplinarians without having to call on administrators for help (Karadimos, 2003). This tool helps prevent problems because students rightfully perceive teachers as the power-holders who are also looking for amicable resolutions.
- This complete document will also be made available as a Word document (Karadimos, 2006).
