ASCD Talks with Author Alfie Kohn
Beyond Discipline: From Compliance to Community, 10th Anniversary Edition
(August 2006 Book)
Beyond Discipline has earned the status of an education classic—a vital alternative to all the traditional classroom management manuals that consist of techniques for imposing control. For this 10th anniversary edition, author Alfie Kohn adds a new afterword that expands on the book's central themes and responds to questions from readers.
Packed with stories from real classrooms around the country, seasoned with humor, and grounded in a vision as practical as it is optimistic, Beyond Discipline shows how students are most likely to flourish in schools that have moved toward collaborative problem solving—and beyond discipline.
