to support our year of Wellness!

Do you wish your students behaved more appropriately?

Positive behavior can be taught. The approach to discipline presented in this book helps children develop self-control, understand how positive behavior looks and sounds, and come to value such behavior. With many examples from their own classrooms, three experienced teachers offer practical techniques to help you:

  • Establish clear expectations for behavior from day one
  • Teach students how to articulate their learning goals for school
  • Create classroom rules that connect to students’ goals
  • Use techniques such as interactive modeling to teach positive behavior
  • Reinforce positive behavior with supportive teacher language
  • Quickly stop misbehavior
  • Restore positive behavior so that children retain their dignity and continue learning
