    Linda,
    Thank you for taking the bull by the horns and trying to institute this new board. Being new at this type of communication, I had no idea how to go about this process. I've just been wandering around the busy board and that is how I stumbled upon Marvin Marshall in the first place.
    I am really excited about trying to implement his format into my classroom and I appreciate any guidance I can get. The concerns are valid, but I think the joys of having the kids becoming responsible citizens far outweigh holding on to rewards and punishments.
    Needless to say I hope that we can get going on a discipline board. I have posted elsewhere that I think that Positive Discipline in the Classroom- Nelsen and Lott is a great complementary book to Marvin Marshall. Marshall talks about using class meetings as an avenue of discussion and the other book tells you exactly how to go about setting up an effective class meeting.
    I look forward to hearing and seeing a lot more on the subject of discipline. In today's classroom the topic can consume more of our instructional time than any other if we don't get a handle on it from the very start.
    I'm still trying to gel how to accomplish the goal of setting all of this up so any advice will be greatly appreciated.
    JoDee
