Ways of dealing with discipline problems

•Acceptable and effective


•Unacceptable and ineffective
Acceptable and effective
1. Use verbal reinforcers that encourage good behavior and discourage bad tendencies.
2. Use nonverbal gestures, frown or a hard look to dissuade them from mischiefs.
3. Dialogues can help in discovering problems and agreeing on mutually beneficial solutions.
4. Focus attention on one who is unruly and is about to disturb the neighbors. Lead him/her to a
secluded area and nicely convince him/her to be quiet.
5. Award merits for good behavior and demerits for inconsistencies and lapses.
6. A private one-on-one brief conference can lead to a better understanding of mistakes that need
to be remedied or improved.
7. Give students the freedom to express or explain agitated feelings and misgivings rather than
censure them right away.
Unacceptable and ineffective
1. Scolding and harsh words as a reprimand will have a negative effect on the entire class.
2. Nagging and faultfinding, together with long “sermons” are repugnant and nasty.
3. Keeping a student in a “detention area” during or after classes as a penalty for misbehavior is
a waste of time and occasion for learning. A shameful experience is not easy to forget.
4. Denying a student some privileges due to unnecessary hyperactivity can all the more encourage
repetitions.
5. Assignment of additional homework compared to the rest can make them dislike the subject.
6. Use of ridicule or sarcasm could humiliate and embarrass a student.
7. Grades for academic achievement should not be affected due to misdemeanor.
