What are the reasons for the increase of frequency and intensity of behavior problems?
"Discipline is a series of little victories, not something that occurs overnight." Ginnott
If you are presently teaching, in what stage or stages of development do you find yourself? What's your plan for progressing higher?
Jane angrily enters your classroom. She has just been scolded by another teacher for "fooling around" and has had the privilege of eating lunch outside at the picnic tables revoked for the rest of the week. In your class she is refusing to do work, calls out and continues the behavior from the other class, adding to it her complaints of unfairness. The class is in danger of not earning the class reward of an extra recess period for having completed all of your assignments. What do you do?
You have carefully implemented a respectful way of talking to the youngsters in your class (see the first link on the home page of this web site). You are assigned a full time classroom aide who frequently becomes angry with the children and takes it upon herself to harshly correct behaviors you choose to overlook. She thinks you're "too soft" and don't fully understand that the kids need "discipline." She was "whupped" (spanked) while growing up and thinks that's what the kids need now
