"Who I Want To Be Plan"

It is very important to look deeply inside yourself as you continue on the journey of becoming a teacher.  We've put together this survey for first year teachers, student teachers, interns, and future teachers in teacher prep programs to help evaluate where you currently are and where you want to be.  



The LEAST Approach to Classroom Discipline

By  Robert R. Carkhuff

The LEAST approach to classroom discipline is a simple survival strategy for the teacher.  It is a response to teachers’ urgent pleas for quick and easy methods they can use in the face of mounting discipline problems.  Succinctly stated in the words of one teacher, “We must survive before we can grow.”  It involves the “least” methods that should be employed to facilitate and maintain classroom control.  LEAST is an acronym for the following activities of the teacher: 

L - Leave things alone when no problems are likely to ensue
E - End the action indirectly when the behavior is disrupting classroom activities
A - Attend more fully when you need to obtain more information and/or communicate
S - Spell out directions when disruption and/or harm will occur
T - Track student progress when following through to evaluate and reinforce behavior
