5 Guiding Principles for Effective School-Wide Discipline | Tom Schimmer Blog

5 Guiding Principles for Effective School-Wide Discipline | Tom Schimmer Blog | Education | Scoop.it
Something I have come to know is that effective schools take a thoughtful approach to student discipline. Admittedly, there are some who believe student behaviour will take care of itself; that we’re all just one formative assessment, one differentiated opportunity, or one project-based experience away from neutralizing any behavioural issues with our students. I will concede that pedagogy can make a difference in the overall level of engagement which would, for most students, likely result in a reduction of negative behaviours. In fact, it’s not really a concession since I agree that a holistic approach is usually most effective; that we need both an engaging learning experience for our students AND a purposeful effort to create the optimum conditions within which students can thrive. That said, the purpose of this post is to explore the guiding principles behind an effective school discipline plan. In future posts I will explore what those plans can actually look like and how (more importantly) they can be implemented with high fidelity.

Via Keith Heggart
Sarah Weimer's insight:
It's like writing a paper. Test scores and baseline knowledge of the student are the basic grammar and structure of the paper. Critical thinking and all of the other "soft skills" of the student are the meat or the ideas of the paper. If you have wonderful ideas but your paper is a mess and unreadable, no one will care about (or even persevere long enough to read) your ideas. Likewise, if your paper is pretty and everything is grammatically correct and spelled correctly but it has no depth or voice, it won't be memorable (and just as unreadable as the first example). We have to have both to have a great finished "product".
