Rules in School. Strategies for Teachers Series.
Brady, Kathryn; Forton, Mary Beth; Porter, Deborah; Wood, Chip
This book offers an approach for helping K-8 students become invested in creating and living by classroom rules. It provides techniques for: helping students articulate their hopes and dreams for school; involving students in generating classroom rules that grow out of their hopes and dreams; modeling, practicing, and role playing the rules; using teacher language effectively to reinforce the rules; teaching children about logical consequences for rule breaking; choosing effective logical consequences; and teaching children to live by rules outside the classroom. Seven chapters are (1) "Creating Rules with Students"; (2) "Practicing the Rules: Bringing Them Back to Life"; (3) "When Students Break the Rules"; (4) "Grades K-2"; (5) "Grades 3-5"; (6) "Grades 6-8"; and (7) "Taking the Rules beyond the Classroom." A conclusion discusses "Rules Are What Make the Good Things Happen." Two appendixes include: problem solving with students and recommended resources on discipline in classrooms and schools. (SM)
