Cooperative Discipline enables teachers to apply specific strategies to reach individual students.
The first step in Cooperative Discipline is to pinpoint exactly what the student wants when he/she misbehaves. Generally, students misbehave to reach one of these four goals: 1. Attention: Some students misbehave to get extra attention. They want to be the center of everything so they may make noises, use foul language, or create unnecessary disruptions during class time to gain attention. 2. Power: Some students just want to be the boss of them selves, the teacher, and the whole class. They want everything their way. These students aren’t likely to comply with classroom rules or teacher requests. They will challenge and argue with teachers until they think they’ve had the "last word.“ 3. Revenge: Some students want to lash out at their teachers or classmates to get even for real or imagined hurts. They may threaten physical harm or indirect physical harm. They may also try to make you feel guilty. 4. Avoidance of failure: Some students feel inadequate because they believe they can’t live up to their own, their family’s, or their teacher’s expectations. They may not complete their work or pretend to have a disability.
Attention: Give the eye Stand close to student Distract the student by asking a direct question or using the student’s name while continuing your lesson. Give specific praise to a nearby student who’s on task. Power: Avoid direct confrontation by agreeing with the student or changing the subject. Acknowledge the student’s power and state your actions Change the activity Use time-out by giving a choice Revenge: Revoke a privilege Build a caring relationship Require the return, repair, or replacement of damaged objects. Involve school personnel or parents if necessary Avoidance of Failure: Acknowledge the difficulty of the assignment Modify instruction, and materials. Teach the student to say "I can" instead of "I can’t" by recognizing achievements Provide peer tutors or ask the student to help someone else
The 3 C’s 1. Capable: Students need to feel capable of completing their work in a satisfactory manner. -Create an environment where it’s okay to make mistakes. -Make your learning objectives reachable for all students. 2.
