This module introduces Discipline Online for implementing the DISCIPLINE WITHOUT STRESS TEACHING MODEL and the PARENTING WITHOUT STRESS MODEL that show how to handle every discipline problem and increase motivation for learning. It makes clear the difference between discipline and classroom management—which is essential for understanding successful teaching, learning, and handling inappropriate behaviors.

Discipline is about behavior, while the key to classroom management is about making instruction efficient by practicing procedures until they become habits. A few examples are given. The module contains the first of a number of informal reflections describing how to gain the most from the program. The module ends explaining the option of receiving university credit. (See the last module for details.)
