with a Logical Consequence
Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: July 28, 2001
a student deliberately does something in my classroom that may
harm another students, a consequence I like to apply to the situation
is to have that student write a report about the dangers of that
harmful activity. For example, if I have a student who is shooting
rubber bands at another student, I will have him/her miss free
time or another special activity and write a report on that subject.
Then, to take this another step further, I arrange with a lower
grade teacher to have my student take a few minutes in their classroom
to share his/her report to the younger students on why we shouldn't
shoot rubber bands. (or whatever misbehavior happened) I rarely
have the same problem happen again in the future!
