Transcript of Jacob Kounin's Model of Discipline.

Jacob Kounin's Model of Discipline.
Jacob Kounin
Jacob Kounin was born in Cleveland, OH in 1912. He graduated from Iowa State University in 1939 and began his work as an educational psychologist at Wayne University in 1946. He is considered one of the great classroom management theorists. He emphasized that instruction and discipline could be combined in the classroom, for previously they were thought to be two separate techniques. He studied and several classrooms and observed how teachers would handle misbehavior after it happened. Later he realized that it was more important to focus on how the teacher handled that class from even before the misbehavior started. Kounin believed that it was important for teachers to actively engage their students to be effective in their teaching. It is imperative for teachers to be attentive to all areas and aspects of their classroom environment.
The Ripple Effect
The ripple effect is based on the idea that a teacher will correct the behavior of one student and the effect will be all of the students displaying the proper behavior. This will lead to a more positive atmosphere.
