The series titles give a flavour of the Bill Rogers approach: Positive Correction: the basic premise that teachers and schools should adopt a non-confrontational approach to discipline, based on positive teacher-student relationships, respect for the dignity and rights of individuals, choices about consequences of behaviour and encouragement for student self-discipline. Prevention: planning for good behaviour; teaching the routines and the rules. Consequences: have a clear structure that students understand and use to inform the choices they make. Repair & Rebuild: the imperative to work hard to build and repair the damage that is done when things don’t work out.
Tom Sherrington breaks down Rogers main ideas, including positive language, take up time and partial agreement. This post offers a useful overview and an important provocation.
