National Agenda: Alternative Discipline Consequences to Enhance Student Achievement
Kritsonis, William Allen; Cloud, Michelle
Online Submission
Educating the 21st century learner requires utilizing innovative strategies. Student behavior must be addressed appropriately to allow educators to fulfill their responsibility to America's students. Creative disciplinary methods motivate all students to develop behavior traits that will assist them with their academic and personal success. The purpose of this essay is to investigate alternative effective disciplinary consequences. Educating the 21st century students entails numerous and somewhat overwhelming challenges. An increasing number of students enter academia with deficits stemming from poverty to language barriers. Nevertheless, schools cannot shirk their responsibility. Schools must educate the ever-changing student with less resources and higher stakes due to state and nationally imposed accountability standards. Schools must be able to meet the challenge of educating all students in an environment that is safe and allows the student to feel secure (Hawkins, Catalono, Kosterman, Abbott, & Hill, 1999.). Historically schools have been viewed as the place to address the ills of society (Mayer, 1995; Walker et al., 1996.).
