    Positive Discipline
    By Tabitha/5th

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I went to an all day training last summer on cooperative discipline. The book is called "Cooperative Discipline" by Linda Albert. It basically stated that you need to give kids choices in making the right decisions. If they reach the stage of explosion then have a Who squad? That is basically two people that can come in and take the child out. I used some of the techniques, but I also found that I use rewards as well. I don't use them to excess, but I have table points and homework warehouse cards. I will every now and then place a pencil or lollipop on a students desk that is organized and kept neat for a while. I try not to use the rewards as bribes because they become accustomed to them and then get upset when they don't get a reward they think is fair. I use both techniques and it seems to work. I think that if you don't go to extreme with rewards you still can get good behavior. It is all in how you handle the situations that arise in your room.
