1. Positive Reinforcement

1.1. Call on students who are demonstrating positive behaviour. "Thanks for raising your hand to speak."

1.1.1. This will make other students want to achieve this positive reinforcement too, which means they will stay on task and respect the rules of the classroom.

2. Negative Behaviour

2.1. When rules are broken, a verbal reminder can sometimes be enough to ensure the student follows the rules.

2.1.1. Speak to the class as a whole such as "Everyone should treat each other with respect." This way, no students will feel embarrassed in front of the class.

3. Relationships

3.1. The teacher needs to develop strong relationships with students, and communicate clearly with them to ensure mutual respect.

3.1.1. Students need to treat each other with respect, and if this does not happen, there should be consequences.

4. Disruptive Students

4.1. Give the students time to calm down as a class if they speak while you are instructing.

4.1.1. If a student arrives late, they should be expected to stay late to catch up on the lesson.

5. Students Absence

5.1. If a student is frequently absent, it can negatively impact their learning and interrupt lessons.

5.1.1. If this happens, students should be given a verbal warning, and if it becomes a bigger issue, administration should be involved or parental figures should be contacted.

6. Express Feelings

6.1. Ensuring a safe space for students to express how they feel could help in discipline with students.

6.1.1. Students should be able to express how they are feeling, and arrange meetings with the teacher if they are in need of support.

7. Create rules/expectation chart with students at the beginning of year.

7.1. Ensure that students understand expectations and rules before the school year begins.

7.1.1. Doing this will minimize the chances of students acting out or saying that they didn't know the rules/expectations.

8. Speak with student outside of class.

8.1. If a student is misbehaving, it is sometimes best to speak with them outside of the classroom rather than in front of others.

8.1.1. Doing this will minimize embarrassment for the student, and ensure the student feels respected.

9. Get to root cause of behaviour.

9.1. Bad behaviour could be the result of something deeper. It is good to get to the root cause before trying to solve the issue.

9.1.1. If there is a bigger issue, parental contact may be necessary.

10. Reward System

10.1. When good behaviour is displayed, students can earn rewards.

10.1.1. Rewards could be earned by the number of classes that they are well-behaved in. They can exchange these "rewards" for candies, or time spent on electronics.
