  1. I will send my recommendation as well! I know that many people have leaned towards Fred Jones or Love and Logic as tools. I would love to see this as another. It so aligns with what we want for our students.
    with love,
    Laurie

  2. I believe, Love and Logic is based on a reward system (but I could be wrong). Conscious Discipline is based on building internal rewards within the students. Sure you tell them they are fantastico! but that’s your tag. What you want to do is give them the information of what they said or did that was brilliant. That gives their brain MORE information.
    It’s a little complicated as to how the brain takes in information as you all know, but often our “good job” language is building a system in the child’s mind that approval comes from an outside source (parent or teacher or authority). Approval needs to come from an inside source–their own approval. Otherwise they will walk around as adults seeking approval from everyone else or being butt heads because “no one will approve of me anyway, they never have.”
    This is why I proposed a self-eval at the bottom of your 10-min. quiz at day’s end. It isn’t to see if they get what you are doing. It is a place for them to reflect on what they think about themselves and whether they did their 50% and if not what kept them from it so they can go onto the next teacher with a moment’s pause to check in on themselves. I think you should do the self-eval at the end of each of your periods. Just give yourself a 1-5 on your energy level, your attention to your students, your goal that hour.
    And my last thing on this CD stuff for now–how many of you presenting or participating last week had intense head aches by dinner? Your brain was in overdrive. As a teacher, you are constantly lending your pre-frontal lobe to your students for decision making–and in teaching language you are really in overdrive lending that brain because you are doing 90% of the thinking/speaking communication that is going on.
    As a participant, we were trying to assimilate all that was being given to us as a learner of language, methodology of teaching, and then trying to spit it all back out intelligently and elegantly. no self-pressure on our parts. I saw lots of anxious people trying to get it right.
    what helps this daily besides lots of Goody powders? Breath! Taking time to go slow and breathe. consiously breathe with your students. They get more oxygen to their brains and you do too. It’s a win-win. You can practice counting while you do it. My master teacher does.

  3. Creating a Classroom Community (family) would apply better for the routines and rituals to high school. Conscious Discipline is the first book and explains the theory better to me. I use both. Kind of like PQA in a Wink! with TPRS in a Year!. I also like her Easy to Love Difficult to Discipline for parents. I used it to help me re-see the info I knew but at a different application.
