Aim of RTP - To guide and teach students in developing a sense of responsibility for their own actions. Responsible Thinking Process Who is Ed Ford? Pro's Ed Ford is president of Responsible Thinking Process, Inc. His organization trains educators and parents in using the Responsible Thinking Process (RTP). “Teaches respect for others by responsible thinking” (Education Queensland,2010) What is RTP? Principle 1 of RTP: Asking Questions A link is made between a rule violation and the unintended consequences. Principle 3 of RTP: Adopting Rules Welcome
Educators! FUN FACTS
Served in the U.S. Navy
Was a newspaper reporter
He taught in a high school for six years
Earned a master’s degree in social work Responsible Thinking Process …
encourages students to
through responsible thinking. What are you doing?What are the rules?What happens when you break the rules?Is this what you want to happen?Where do you want to be?
What do you want to do now?What will happen if you disrupt again? Setup observable rules and expectations for the children right from the beginning so that if they do misbehave they can reflect successfully.
Regular classroom discussion of the rules is important under this model so that children understand the reasons for, and can respond to, the rules rather than become unthinkingly 'rule bound'. Principle 2 of RTP: Assisting Reorganisation The students must understand the consequences for their actions. Reorganisation involves students resolving their inner conflicts by talking and is a long term process. Teachers can assist in this process by questioning and talking to their students. By doing this students can determine their goals and their perceptions. Principle 4 of RTP: Taking responsibility
for the learning environment “According to Ed Ford spending quality time with students builds their sense of worth and improves relationships, resulting in a decreased number of disagreements, differences and disruptions”. Ultimately, the teacher must then be able to accept the student’s apology for disturbing the class and give the student a clean slate. Con's On Broadway (scenario) The play is called Laila’s Tough Day at School and is a about a girl called Laila who has grown up in a middle class family in the south west of Sydney. She is a 17 year old girl who is the youngest in her family, having two successful older brothers, Laila has always tried to seek other students and staff attention in a number of ways including loud outbursts of laughter and making smart remarks. In a discussion in a PD/H/PE lesson on sex ed. Laila begins to target other students stating a number of hurtful remarks. Laila receives her first warning then retaliates making a very inappropriate comment directed at her teacher. Laila then stands up aggressively to leave the room continuing to voice more immature comments and knocks over a number of student’s desks on her way out the door. •Responsible Thinking Classroom (RTC)
