A Classroom Management Plan That Works: Classroom Discipline 101

Updated on July 13, 2017

Classroom Discipline 101: Discover Effective Classroom Management Techniques

You need a classroom management plan that works because school has changed since we were kids. As you know many classrooms around the world are facing challenges with student behavior. Do you have a classroom that is unruly, noisy, out of control or sometimes even dangerous. Do you feel unsafe in your own classroom? If you have answered yes to any of these questions you could use a break, am I right?

As a parent, we all want what is best for our kids. We want them to be safe in school, and to be able to learn effectively [so they can become doctors and pay for our retirement years =) ].

In all seriousness though if your classroom is not calm, quiet and respectful learning is down right hard if not impossible.

That is why I want to share with you Craig Seganti's book Classroom Discipline 101 - A highly regarded guide to effective classroom management. If you are here looking where to buy Classroom Discipline 101 you can get started on your new respectful class here because it is time for you to rediscover why you wanted to become a teacher, and help your students reach their full potential.

Who is Craig Seganti?

And why should you buy his classroom discipline book?

Craig Seganti's successful approach to classroom discipline: "Classroom Discipline 101"-has been featured in C. M. Charles' book Building Classroom Discipline (10th Edition). Charles' text has been the industry leader in classroom management and classroom discipline techniques that work best for teachers and students and he devoted a whole chapter to Craig's Classroom Discipline 101 ebook!

Craig Seganti has been a teacher in inner city Los Angeles' toughest schools for the past 20 years - so he knows a thing or two about classroom discipline and effective classroom management plans. Craig has:

  • Taught over 11,000 different secondary students in the inner-city and elsewhere around Los Angeles of all ages, abilities and ethnic backgrounds.
  • Been a full time teacher, long term substitute or day to day substitute in over 80 secondary schools.
  • Taught juvenile offenders in the Los Angeles County Probation Camps.

Mr. Seganti (or Mr. Classroom Discipline as he's been called) has had to deal with some of the most difficult students this country has to offer, and guess what? He has no classroom management problems whatsoever $6! Can you imagine what that means to the success of your students? I know you can, It means your students actually learn!

"I have never read a better book on the subject of classroom discipline. You have nailed it. Your take on school administration is spot-on. I have been empowered, however, by the simple steps of achieving freedom from manipulation. I read and reread your book, and feel better everyday. The sick feeling of dread I had daily at the prospect of spending the day w/ 7th graders is diminishing."

Kind words and success stories about Classroom Discipline 101

If you need any motivation what so ever take a look at his "success stories" page (go to the Classroom Discipline home page and click the "Testimonials" tab at top) - there are some pretty moving letters from teachers who have seen amazing results with his book. Below is one of my favorites:

Craig,

I just couldn't be more thrilled, and amazed with the transformation in my work day.

I have two thirds of the football team in my 3rd block class and never thought I would see what I now see every day! They are huge and wild and hyper just out of lunch and a few minutes of unstructured recess before my class time, but now I catch them collecting themselves right before the walk through my door! Then 90 minutes of carefree serious teaching and learning with quiet and respectful students follows. (P.S. We still have fun.) When they leave, not a scrap of trash is on that floor. I am amazed.

Thank you, again. Virginia

Here is Craig Seganti himself talking about his classroom management plan and what you need to get your classroom under control for the 2014-2015 school year.

If you are reading this well formed, well written, eloquent review so far (if he can get a cool title like Mr. Classroom Discipline I want one too - call me Mr. Modest) you must be thinking to yourself

"I really NEED this, my students are driving me crazy!"

Or, maybe you just have one or two students that rile up the rest and you are pulling out your hair trying to figure out the best plan to get them all to listen.

Well, you are in luck - for a limited time, if you act now I will send you a FREE, yes I said FREE link to his ebook sales page - WOW!

Quick Note (or not so quick): I link to Craig's sales page throughout this review. He sells his methods in the form of an e-book that you download. I wholeheartedly endorse Craig's eBook. I've spoken with him directly and his methods are working for thousands of teachers all over the world - it really is inspiring to see the success teachers are having with his methods and I would love it if you had that kind of success too.

Classroom Discipline Debate - Should teachers have to discipline our children?

My father was a teacher for 40 years, and I know that there was a student or two that caused a few problems in the classroom. But these days classrooms have changed, the horror stories we hear and the difficulty teachers have with students has gotten way out control. Without an effective classroom management plan I just don't know how kids learn anything.

So who is responsible for our children's behavior, us as parents or should teachers "teach" proper behavior?

What do you have to say - let the debate begin...

      My sister worked at a middle school for one month and then quit, vowing never to work with that age group again. Obviously, her credential program left her unprepared to deal with classroom management and the administration offered her no support. It's so sad. She was hired to teach history and language arts and she really knows her stuff, but the kids kept interrupting and just took over. Unfortunately, that's why we don't always get the best teachers.

      That was an interesting link to the "no recess" article. That makes sense. Occasionally when teaching ESL I would take away time from a student's involvement in a game or activity if they were causing trouble. The thing was that's part of the lesson and I realized that didn't work so well.

      @CrossCreations: I agree Americans spoil their children. They let them get away with too much. I taught in Asia for about 6 years and I came back to the states to teach and I could see a big difference.

      Set a positive but firm relationship with the kids or pupils always be 2 or more steps ahead with regards to content of the subject matter and you will earn respect and they will soon catch up with the aura of Learning is fun but we expect achievements and positive results

      I'm both a former teacher and a parent. No easy answers ... takes a team approach and while there's fault on both sides, parents especially in general need to quit overindulging their children and be more firm about discipline. A teacher faced with large groups of young ones at one time must have a discipline plan, it's sink or swim. Seems those parents who tend to challenge the school discipline the most tend to be just one ones who have none of their own at home. Schools aren't perfect and parenting is TOUGH. So is teaching. Firm consequences for behaviors is how they learn, best to get that from both ends.

      Discipline is important in every stage in life, whether one is a child or adult, but it's vital that children are taught discipline and the importance of it. I don't think anyone entity has sole responsibility, rather, I think is it a collective responsibility. I think society today has become quite lax when it comes to discipline, so it's important to have an effective plan in place that caters to individuals.

      As someone who needed to keep a tight hold on the class, and not drop the ball, I worked in a Special Education facitiliy with children who had behavioural and emotional difficulties, I can say i am really impressed by your review, and of the product.

      My biggest suggestion is have what I call 'off the top of my head activities' to fill spare time, like get the children to listen to you say 4 words, then repeat missing one out, do this a few times and then go up to 5 words 6 words... It is great fun!

      [in reply to Annette] Hello Annette. Thanks for stopping by. I would say definitely yes from what I have heard from other teachers. I've spoken to Craig and he has had lots of success with his method in countries all over the world not just in the US. Good luck, and I wish you well with your teaching.

      I am from the West Indies and here, generally, teachers go to the student's class as oppose to the opposite in America. Can anyone tell me if Craig's book would help a teacher like me.

      The book sounds so good and I'm so anxious for a solution right now. I wish I had a sneak preview NOW ....I need help NOW.

      I teach high school and there are times when my students drive me crazy. Some of them don't understand the concept of discipline and have absolutely no respect. Some of them treat their parents worse than their teachers. Fewer and fewer young adults are going into teaching. The low pay AND lack of respect is a real turn-off. When my generation of teachers retire, the schools are going to be left with no one.

      Great lens

      "Classroom Discipline 101" is a great resource for teachers. Another excellent resource is "1-2-3 Magic". I have had wonderful success in the classroom using this system. Feel free to check out my lens, "Behaviour Management In The Classroom".

      Great lens and great tool for classroom management. I have worked with many teachers over the years and observed one extreme to the other. These strategies and tools will assist teachers and aides in getting control over their environment and concentrate on the importance of instruction.

      Thank you for recommending classroom discipline 101! I don't know what I would have done this summer without it - kids don't want to be in class during the summer and boy were they showing it. I'm glad I found Craig's book though - thank you rusty for bringing it to my attention.
