Don’t let challenging students make learning challenging

Discipline doesn’t have to be punitive — but it should be corrective. Do your teachers know how to uncover the real causes of bad behavior?

When disruptive students — whether entertainers or bullies — continually fail to respond to escalating consequences, even the very best teacher can become frustrated and lose patience. But when teachers start seeing and understanding the real causes of bad behavior — a deficiency of social and emotional resources combined with students finding their way among their peers — they can stop disciplining and start intervening with strategies to build important resources and supports into the classroom, minimizing disruption and increasing engagement and learning for all students.
