- Marshall points out that discipline can be an opportunity, rather than a problem.
(Marshall, 2004, p. 67)
- Marshall explains that discipline is more like a tool for teaching responsibility and the ultimate goal of discipline is self-discipline.
There are four levels of behaviour in the raising
responsibility system.
- The real influence of teachers is reflected by what students do when the teacher is not with them.
*What do you think responsibility
*What do you think self-discipline

Cultural Knowledge
Provides an opportunity for each student to make a connection between the content of the lesson and any type of life experience the student may have had.
Experienced at school though a prior lesson, in a different class or from previous years at school.
Could also come from outside of the school environment including home or community.
Limited in a lesson when a new topic or content is introduced.
Background Knowledge
Lessons high in cultural knowledge contain content that is meaningful and significant.
From a range of diverse social groups; including gender, ethnicity, race or religion.
From languages, beliefs and traditions, distinctly different from the dominant Australian culture.
Lessons lacking in these components are regarded as low in cultural knowledge.
