The Win-Win Disciple Theory is a strategy that is used to handle a discipline problem at the moment that it occurs, targeting the root of the problem. The root of the problem is said to be the students’ unfulfilled needs. The purpose of this theory is to prevent behavior problems from occurring.
1.) Needs are being met with no discipline problems. 2.) Even though the students’ needs are not being satisfied, students are coping with unmet needs responsibly. 3.) Kids are acting out as a result of unmet needs.
The position is defined as the students’ behavior as a result of unmet needs. 1.) Attention seeking 2.) Avoiding embarrassment 3.) Anger venting 4.) Control Seeking 5.) Energetic 6.) Bored 7.) Uninformed
Must be accepting of the students’ position. Must teach students how to deal with their positions maturely. It is critical for a teacher to know their students’ positions in order for them to handle discipline problems effectively.
1.) Pillars (Philosophy) I. Same Side II. Shared Responsibility III. Learned Responsibility 2.) Procedures (Ounces of Prevention) 3.) Positions (Places students are) 4.) Process (Strategies for the moment of disruption and follow-ups) 5.) Programs (Pounds of Prevention)
The key purpose of the theory is to “promote life skills, cooperation, and critical thinking about choices and consequences” It is important for children to be corrected instead of being punished in some way. Why it is called The Win-Win Discipline Theory? When we meet the needs of the students in a responsible and respectful manner, bad behavior decreases; therefore they win. When teachers are able to teach their students in an environment that is safe and productive, they win. As a result, it is a “win-win proposition”.
