What is your Discipline Beliefs?

Teacher Matters presents an interactive self discovery analysis tool to assist in discovering what discipline approach you tend to favor. This analysis tool is based on Wolfgang and Glickman’s Beliefs on Discipline Inventory (1995).

While teachers entertain a wide range of beliefs about discipline, beliefs may be placed into three broad categories;

  • The Interventionists (where teachers use Rules/Rewards-Punishment),
  • The Non-Interventionists (where teachers value Human Relationships and Listening), and
  • The Interactionalists (where teachers Confront, Contract and Negotiate).

All three approaches are essential and teachers ideally blend skills from each approach to perfect a balanced disciplinary style. Complete the survey below and find out which of these three approaches you tend to favor and discover the skills you need to improve upon to help you achieve better results in the classroom.

THIS SURVEY REQUIRES YOU TO MAKE FORCED CHOICES.
