Transcript of The Wonderful World of Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs

The Wonderful World
of Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs 4 Goals of
Misbehavior Cooperation Classroom
Management Encouragement Commend effort.
Separate the deed from the doer.
Build on strengths, not weaknesses.
Avoid discouragement.
Work for improvement, not perfection.
Praise is not the same as encouragement. Consequences 5 R's of Logical Consequence
Related - a consequence should be logically connected to the behavior.
Reasonable - a consequence should be equal in proportion and intensity with the misbehavior.
Respectful - a consequence should be stated and carried out in a way that preserves a student's self-esteem.
Reliably enforced - a consequence should follow misbehavior. Consistency is the key.
Revealed - a consequence should be known in advance for predictable behavior such as breaking class rules. Natural consequences are based on the natural flow of events and are those which take place without adult interference. Using logical consequences in your classroom
1. Evaluate the goal of misbehavior.
2. Provide interventions based on the goal.
3. Impose a natural or logical consequence when rules are broken or misbehavior occurs.
4. Build community in the classroom by helping students connect to each other and to you. Source: http://education.ucsb.edu/webdata/instruction/ed395bf/Management/LP4_Cognitive_Systems_Mangement/Dreikurs.PDF Source: "Discipline Without Tears" by

A non-competitive person does not waste energy thinking about winning or losing.
A non-competitive person treats everyone with mutual respect.
A non-competitive person has the courage to be imperfect. "As a social being, each child wants to belong. His behavior indicates the ways and means by which he tries to be significant." Source: Maintaining Sanity in the Classroom by Rudolf Dreikurs What kind of
