I am looking for some suggestions regarding behaviour management. I plan on implementing an incentive/reward program for the whole class. I am also looking for a system that will address inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour. I have read a lot of information on this and most of it seems to go against putting names on the board with strikes etc. because it centers out the child. This can backfire if the students thrives on this type of attention. It also can harm the child's dignity and then you can lose the teacher-child relationship that I feel is essential for success. If I am not going to use a system that has children standing out then what kind of system can I use that will work. I was thinking of keeping the student who is misbehaving in at recess and having them write definitions of words from the dictionary. These would be words that relate to the student's problem area (eg. respect, consideration, etc.) Then I would have the student use that word in an apology note. The note would be photocopied and sent home.
