    You'd need to read each of the articles in the linked list that GuruBlue gave you and make a comparison chart for yourself.

    Comparison chart = two columns on one page or two facing pages in a binder or notebook. One column for one topic; second column for the other topic. Then as you read the articles, you list the elements you believe are significant for each term or topic.

    I'm not sure there is much difference, except that Classroom Discipline is within Classroom Management. Management covers EVERYTHING; discipline covers "keeping order" in the classroom.

    This is not an easy subject either!

  3. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. I thought I posted the difference the other day but now I can't find it! Essentially it is the difference between being proactive (anticipating problems = management) and reactive (punishing after the fact = discipline.)

    CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT deals with how things are done.
    DISCIPLINE deals with how people behave.
    CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT has to do with procedures, routines, and structure.
    DISCIPLINE is about impulse management and self-control.
    CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT is the teacher's responsibility.
    DISCIPLINE is the student's responsibility.
    CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT is enhanced when procedures are:

    1. explained to students,

    2. practiced by students, and periodically (when necessary)

    3. reinforced by practicing again.

    When procedures are learned, routines are established.
    Routines give structure to instruction.
    Good classroom management is essential for efficient teaching and learning. Chances are that when you walk into a room, you do not pay much attention to the floor. But if it were missing, you would. The analogy works for classroom management. You don't notice it when it is good. But without it, the lack of it is readily apparent.
    The differences between classroom management and discipline are two of the four distinctive concepts necessary for an understanding of effective teaching. The other two are "curriculum" and "instruction."
    Curriculum refers to what is to be taught. The curriculum is determined by state departments of education, boards of education, the "federal agenda," professional associations, the community--and, more recently, corporate performance accountability models for learning.
    It is the teacher's responsibility to make the curriculum relevant, interesting, meaningful, and/or enjoyable. (The November, 2002, article gives suggestions for accomplishing this task.)
    Instruction has two components: (1) teaching and (2) learning. The former refers to what the teacher does, the latter to what students do.
    Good teaching of a lesson has at least three parts: (1) grabbing interest, (2) the actual teaching, and (3) reflection on the experiences for enhanced understanding, reinforcement, and retention.
    Learning pertains to what students do to learn.
    Here is my point: If you have a particularly unsuccessful lesson, ask yourself,
    (1) Was it the curriculum? e.g., I just didn't make it appealing,
    or
    (2) Was it instruction? e.g., I had a wonderful lesson planned, but I did all the work; the students were not involved enough in their learning,
    or
    (3) Was it classroom management? e.g., I had a wonderful lesson, but it took 10 minutes to get everything organized,
    or
    (4) Was it a discipline problem? e.g., I prompted the students' curiosity, taught a good lesson with meaningful student activities, had everything organized, but I still had disruptions?
    Asking yourself these questions enhances a clear understanding of the differences between curriculum, instruction, classroom management, and discipline and is a fundamental first step of an effective teacher.
