Learn how alternative discipline methods can create long-term change. Suspensions don’t work. They don’t improve behavior and they don’t address the social-emotional needs of students. It is time to change the culture of discipline in schools. There are better, alternative discipline methods that can create positive, meaningful long-term changes in the behavior of challenging students. Aligned with educational law, Don’t Suspend Me! is a user-friendly guide that gives educators the tools they need to apply these alternative methods.
Readers will find:
- A toolkit with alternative strategies to use for the most common behavior challenges
- Case study examples and testimonials from educators in the field
- Worksheets and exercises for the major discipline incidents that occur in schools
- Answers to commonly asked questions
Written by practitioners for practitioners, this book will help educators comply with new legal requirements, create meaningful change in the behavior of at-risk students, and ultimately develop more productive and empathetic citizens.
