Hi! I just got home from an interview at a Great Expectations model school. The principal interviewed me ,, and two 3rd grade teachers. One of the questions I was asked was, how would I handle discipline? Naturally I said,,I would have rules established and the students would get two warnings, after that they would have to write down what rules they broke, and write out a plan about how they would modify their behavior. Well,,,the principal called it aggressive discipline, or something like that and that kind of discipline was fading out of the schools fast. Then they asked me if I knew about Jim Faye, and of course I knew that hes the love and logic guy. However, Ive never seen any teachers using his technique. They talked about how its better to have natural consequences and all. Well,,,whats wrong with telling kids what the rules are and if they fail to abide by them, they wont recieve reccess or something they like may get takin away? Is it all the same thing, but the love and logic is just worded differenty and is all sugary and sweet?lol Anyhow,, I did like the school and the teachers and prinipal seemed really nice. I just wondered do any of you use love and logic technique. And is what I thought to be a somewhat good behavior management system really fading in the schools?
