Being a Teacher: Section Four - The teacher's authority: sustaining an effective learning environment

Being a Teacher: Professional Challenges and Choices, Section Four, The teacher’s authority: sustaining an effective learning environment. The issue of an orderly learning environment (involving rules, discipline and punishment) is explored in relation to broader issues of individual rights and freedom in a democracy.

There are three main questions that propel this section: How are teachers to maintain, or regain, their authority? What is the teacher’s role in a democratic learning environment? How can teachers exercise effective authority in practice – how can they establish and maintain order that is not based on fear?
