A Coggle Diagram about 4 types:
- Responsible thinking: in many cases, followinf the disruptive behavior, having the student to stop, to think and to engage in responsible thinking is sufficient.
- Apology: social cushions, they soften the impact of hurtful behavior. Will prevent the instinct of hurting back. Mistakes are inevitable, learning to apologize is a key skill.
- Restutition: the student who has broken something needs to repair or replace it. A very concrete way to take responsibility for one's action.
- Lost of activity, Access, Interaction: lost of the opportunity to participate the next time that this activity occures. Access: if abuse of resource or material, no more access for some time. Interaction: if abusive to others, lose the ability to interact for a time.
and Caution: if the desire of one student is not to participate to an activity, this type of consequence will not be a good choice.
), 3 principles:
(Principle 1; appropriate and linked: to the type of disruption and commensurate with the size of the disrupt.
, Principle 2: Clear: vague phrases lead ss to test and feel that consequences are being applied arbitralily.
and Principle 3: Pre-established when known and non-negociable, ss more likely to fell that they have brought about the consequences themselves and take more responsability.
), Cautions & Hints
(Progressive Consequences: 1st offense: responsible thinking + Apology 2nd offense: Responsible thinking + Apology+ Restitution 3rd offense: responsible thinking+ Apology+ Restitution+ Visit to the principal
, Anger: important to give time to all ss to cool down before implementing the consequences.
and Control-Seeking: important to emphasize shared responsibility with the student involved: " the consequences we agree on have to be those which we both think are fair and that we can both stick to it"
), Win-Win Consequences
- Same-Side: working as alies with the student, toward just consequnces.
- Collaborative Solutions: work together to implement consequences in a respectful way, ss are less likely to resist.
- Learned Responsibility:check:consequences are but a stop gap discipline approach if they don't lead to learned responsibility.
), Implementing Consequences: if consequences have been pre-established, for a disruptive moment, implementation only requires a reminder
, Consequence Remimder: At sign of an up-coming disruption, teacher reminds the pre-established consequence
and Examples of consequences:1. warnings 2. Reflection time 3. Personal improvement plan 4. telephone call to parents 5. Principal's Office-Student will be sent home.
