Transcript of Linda Albert, Cooperative Discipline

Personal Evaluation
Albert presents good ideas that promote student well-being, involvement, and success.
Students should understand how they are "needed." Because of this, students are also learning their role in society.
It is important that students and teachers have a cooperative and positive relationship in order to maintain classroom discipline and for students to receive instruction most efficiently.
