Would Like Help Understanding and Developing Appropriate Consequences for Rules
As someone studying to become a teacher, I would like to hear successful "consequences" some of you have created. When trying to brainstorm my own for a Classroom Management Plan model, they feel too strict or not strict enough - either way, they don't feel realistic. I was such a rule follower in school - it's harder for me to relate to a student who intentionally breaks rules. In reading what other teachers have shared, I've thought of a system with a verbal or written 1st warning, a detention with reflectional exercise for a 2nd infraction, parent contact the 3rd time, and then a 4th infraction warrants administrator involvement. I'm curious what has worked in your classrooms? I'm even more curious to know what didn't work! Any feedback would be great, because this is the aspect of teaching that intimidates me the most.
