Topic: Discipline

10-second review: A different view of discipline—not punishment, but controlled action.

Title: “Discipline or Punish? Some Suggestions for School Policy and Teacher Practice.” KW Yang. Language Arts (September 2009), 49-61.

Quote: Freire (1998, p. 86): “Discipline is a necessary condition for effective action in the social world. ‘True discipline does not exist in the muteness of those who have been silenced, but in the stirrings of those who have been challenged, in the doubt of those who have been prodded, and in the hopes of those who have been awakened.’ ”
