Good Essays
Preventive and Support Discipline Preventive Discipline is important in the classroom because it is an effective way to prevent from having to give a consequence to a student or students. Most teacher do not want to give some form of consequence to their student or students, but it may be necessary. Support Discipline is useful because it helps the student refocus on what they are supposed to be doing. Some students just need a little reminder to stay on task, and Support Discipline techniques help keep the student on task. The Differential Reinforcement technique can be very useful because the teacher is drawing positive attention to a student that is doing something good instead of drawing attention to one student that is doing something

    "The fundamental need of American education is to find ways of engaging today's children in the thrill of learning. Fear of pain has no place in that process." - The Christian Science Monitor. Because Ms. Peña and I are in compliance with this statement, we have decided to bring to the attention of the community, the corporal punishment of Sinton High School. There are many effective ways of properly punishing a disobedient student, but there are also limits to certain disciplinary measures. Grant it that a student from Sinton High School may now choose their own punishment, with consent from the parents, it is up to the administrator to keep in compliance, and with in the limits. Bruises, cuts, and/or broken skin should not occur in the process of administering corporal punishment. The eight constitutional amendment clearly states that "no cruel or unusual punishment should be inflicted." If markings are found on a student, the boundaries and law have been broken. Rupturing these boundaries surfaces the question, "Just exactly WHY are we administering the corporal punishment to students, to hurt them?" "...the use of corporal punishment in schools is intrinsically related to child maltreatment. It contributes to a climate of violence, it implies that society approves of the physical violation of children, it establishes an unhealthy norm...Its outright abolition throughout the nation must occur immediately." - U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect.…

    There must be a concern for the negative effects of physical punishment of children's undesirable behavior. One main concern is that abusive parenting is a model that children adopt an acceptable method of parenting their own children. There is certainly a correlation between children who have been subject to harsh physical punishment and children who grow up to be abusive adults. Also, modeling violent behavior for children strains relationships they have with others. It is generally seen that children raised with violent punishment are more violent in thee relationships with others. They are classically conditioned to see fear as a source of pain and know that this can be used to benefit them, as they have seen their parents use it. This is a side effect of classical conditioning of fear. There are many other negative side effects of physical punishment in children as well.…

    It is vital that students are able to perform necessary skills to function at their grade levels even if there is some type of reinforcement provided until the student can perform the skill on their own. Previously in special education and general education, there was only negative reinforcement if the student performed some tasks in the incorrect manner. Negative reinforcement was a punishment that was provided to the student due to not performing the skill. It is important to know the difference in between the two reinforcements. Currently, teachers are providing positive reinforcements to their students to create a positive feeling for the students.…

    “To provide the best learning environment for their students, teachers need to have good classroom management skills” (Pass, 2007). For teachers to be effective in their role they need to have in place different models of behaviour management. Behaviour management is important not only for the teacher to be able to teach but also so that all students are in an environment that they can learn and feel safe (Cope, 2005). There are three main theories when it comes to discipline and behaviour they are Management Theories, Leadership Theories and Non-directive Intervention Theories. Discipline and management theories can vary in approach, some expect the teacher to develop a better understanding of their students on a personal level, in a way in which they may find out the underlying cause to the students…

    When having to address an employee's behavioral issues it can be challenging for any employer to deal with the matter. For this reason most companies have policies in the workplace in order to provide guidelines as to how and when employee discipline can be administered. In these case the supervisors, managers and human resources personnel find a progressive discipline policy that is easy to follow. These policies take the guesswork out of determining whether the company should end the employment relationship, or if the employee's work and performance are marred by slight missteps or errors.…

    CORPORAL PUNISHMENT

    Corporal punishment in regards to spanking has been used for hundreds of years in educational systems and in house holds and is still legal in all fifty states for parents to use in there household because it is an effective way to punish a child for wrong behavior. Even though in the last couple of decades this topic has been very controversial, many countries and educational systems have decided to outlawed corporal punishment because of the belief that it has created more and more violent behavior in children. But, there is still no direct link to spanking causing children to have more violent behavior. However, if youth violence and dysfunction is increasing at the same time that corporal punishment is decreasing, we should be open enough to consider whether the two trends are related. Maybe there is no connection. But maybe lawmakers and child welfare workers should pay more attention to the research suggesting that physical discipline can be helpful in certain contexts (Larzelere,2005). The whole reason for ‘punishment’ is to stop a behavior from happening again by applying an unpleasant stimulus immediately after a bad behavior has occurred. Therefore, we use corporal punishment because it is a method of punishment called punishment by application which spanking is applied to the child after a bad behavior, preventing it from happening again, which also help implement discipline.…

A good discipline program must fit well into the teacher’s classroom management program. Discipline is the process of managing student impulses. While classroom management is a tool that maintains order, classroom discipline is a tool that teaches and is designed to help the students learn a new behavior. (Charles, 2008)…

    as well as other policies such as exclusionary disciplinary practices that remove a minor from school for prolonged periods of time contribute to unruly behavior and influence these minors to become delinquents. As explained by Leiber, Peck, and Rodriguez, poverty is a major factor that is made worse when the offending youth is forced to miss extended time from school. Jackson (2014) argues that based on incarceration data in the USA, African-Americans and Latino students are targeted more frequently by these practices that further increase their risk of adopting criminal behavior in the culture. A key finding by the studies of Nance (2015) and Curtis (2013) supports this argument as both studies determined that school performance and aptitude…

    Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish, although verbose, contains important dialogue concerning the concept of power in the penal systems of late 18th century France with public execution, and the gradual transformation of power in subsequent disciplinary systems up to modern times. Power is closely related to the concepts of violence or force, but they are not the same. Throughout this work, Foucault establishes the trend of using power as a sort of political technology over the human body.…
