Advantages•I find many advantages. With this approach teacher, parents, and students work together and all know what is expected at any given time. •Students become more responsible.

It says that with in the first weeks the teacher needs to build an alliance with the parents. Unfortunately with the time of today teacher may not have the parent support that the teachers need to pull this strategy off. I some districts and classes this would work but not all.•The idea is presented to have students repeat a certain behavior until they have done it correctly. •Morrish stated that the purpose of discipline is to have students do what they don’t want to do. This is problem some since he stated that most students don’t like to obey rules. Agree or Disagree•There was much emphasize on the need to teach the student the desired behaviors. And we must remember if you want your class to run a certain way you must take the time to teach them how. •I agree completely with the Wong’s. I believe that if you have a busy classroom. What I mean by that is have an assignment at the start of class I believe there will be less time for your students to misbehave. In many of my classrooms the teachers have the students set up the classroom rules. After the whole class is done with their rules the teacher has rules that they want in place. • There was much emphasize on the need to teach the student the desired behaviors. And we must remember if you want your class to run a certain way you must take the time to teach them how. •I believe that over time this procedure will make students make better behavior choices that serve them and the class with benefit.
•There was much emphasize on the need to teach the student the desired behaviors. And we must remember if you want your class to run a certain way you must take the time to teach them how. •I disagree with this Discipline. I believe that children do know how to behave although some rules need to be explained I feel that if a student helped establish the rules they would fully understand and be able to follow the rules that they helped establish. Although, I do agree with setting limits on behavior and not waver.
