Logical Discipline: A Restorative and Social-Emotional Approach for Educators

Friday February 3, 2023
1:00 - 2:00 PM
Room 107-110

We believe that discipline must be logical. In other words, it means doing what is necessary to get desired results for both the educator and the student. Logical discipline is proactive to avoid problematic behaviors, builds skills and tools with students, and it holds students accountable for their actions in a way that changes behavior while maintaining their dignity. Student behaviors can be frustrating and make teaching harder. Especially student behaviors that don’t seem to change. We don’t always know what to try next or how to go beyond the surface-level behaviors to get down to the why behind it. Many of our students need support with their social-emotional development, work habits, academics, soft skills, and more. By supporting, teaching, and collaborating with students where they are, real growth can occur. Logical discipline combines strategies from restorative practices, trauma-informed practices, equitable practices, and more to improve outcomes for all students.
