Closing the Exits off the Road to Responsibility: Supportive, Non-Exclusionary Discipline
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Can responsibility be taught? How can educators move from “making” students behave to helping students learn self-management? This is a major, but necessary, paradigm shift – moving from enforcement to a focus on student growth and providing essential life skills.
In this session, author Larry Thompson will discuss how traditional discipline practices actually allow students to continue using those exits to avoid responsibility. He will also share six essential practices that will close those exits and help students learn self-management. These six essential practices include:
Benefits for Changing Behavior
Leadership in Challenging Moments
Adopt best practices for creating a school culture in which students take ownership of their actions.
Master techniques for dealing with different low-to-high intensity disciplinary cases.
Close exits on the road to responsibility with emotional control.
Adopt methods to drastically decrease disciplinary referrals to the office.
Cultivate clear, appropriate and consistent expectations to prevent and address disruptive student behaviors.
