Faculty Georgetown is a leader among law schools in providing academic offerings in public interest law, which deals with the representation of people or interests that, through most of history, have been underrepresented in legal institutions and processes. Many lawyers practice public interest law by devoting their careers or volunteering their time to serving people who are disadvantaged or to advance public causes of various types. Some work for non-profit organizations such as legal aid agencies or public defender officesnational or local governments, or international organizations.
This is a permissible and indeed a highly convenient usage. But there is a more restricted idea equally deserving of a name — the idea of a constitution as a contrivance which not only describes but confines government, at least in its everyday activities. The argument for such confinement was stated by Alexander Hamilton in The Federalist: A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.
The tradition of constitutionalism begins in ancient Athens and has had a long, interrupted, and irregular history to the present day.
It has embraced devices of two kinds. Institutional arrangements of one sort or another have been advocated on the ground that they protected substantial interests from governmental encroachment. Furthermore, there has been a persistently recurring idea of the character of law.
Two inferences have been drawn from the proposition that law is a rule of conduct — that it is general, and that it is prospective. To implement this conception, the doctrine of the separation of the legislative from the executive power was introduced, and it will be argued below that judicial review relies heavily on the same idea.
Among substantial interests property is prominent, and it is natural that the "auxiliary precautions" which take the form of institutional arrangements should aim at the protection of property. In the ancient world, with its republican institutions, the propertied class undertook to defend itself against the propertyless; in the Middle Ages, when kingship was the chief political institution, property opposed itself to the royal power.
But constitutionalism has been used to protect other interests as well. In Athens in the fourth century before Christ there were institutional arrangements intended to prevent the democracy from being overthrown by a tyrant.
From the beginning of modern constitution-making in seventeenth-century England, freedom of conscience has been an object of primary concern. The American constitutions of the eighteenth century gave great attention to the protection of persons accused of crime.A Comparison of Discipline Models A Comparison of Discipline Models Rosemary and Harry Wong Pragmatic Classroom • The theory emphasizes the importance of preparation and procedure in managing the classroom.

Identify the respective strengths and weaknesses, and advantages and disadvan . In the instinctive approach the mind generally remains closed to alternatives, favoring instead the first satisfactory decision or solution. Consequently, the outcome is frequently flawed or at least less effective than would be the case with the structured approach.
The Win-Win approach fixes the situation by allowing the students to choose a better approach to the issue. Morrish’s Real- Discipline approach believes that students do not know how to behave properly and responsible when they begin school.
