Bloomington, Ind.–May 14, 2007–Solution Tree, an educational publishing and services company, is reissuing two popular books by world-renowned classroom management expert Allen N. Mendler, Ph.D. What Do I Do When ??: How to Achieve Discipline With Dignity in the Classroom is scheduled for release May 15. Just In Time: Powerful Strategies to Promote Positive Behavior will be released later this month with the new title, More What Do I Do When ?? The reissued resources will feature improved cover and interior design.
Well-known by educators for providing positive principles and unconventional discipline strategies, these books move beyond the practice of classroom management to explore what motivates misbehavior. Mendler´s down-to-earth approach offers educators accessible discipline methods and unique approaches to difficult situations. He also shares strategies for dealing with power struggles, working with parents, and making a positive impact on school-wide discipline.
In 2006, Solution Tree released a professional development video series created by Mendler and his colleague, Richard L. Curwin. The Four Keys to Effective Classroom and Behavior Management explores skill areas essential to long-term behavior change rather than quick fixes. This principle of sustained behavioral improvement is core to the Discipline With Dignity philosophy developed by Mendler and Curwin.
Currently implemented in 12 countries, Discipline With Dignity empowers educators with positive behavior management strategies that preserve the dignity of students and teachers. The philosophy is supported by solid principles that provide educators with the foundation they need to implement effective discipline practices.
