Lesson 7: Responding to Student Misbehavior
The new brain research is helpful in enabling teachers to understand “why” students behave as they do. Another matter entirely is “what to do” when students misbehave.
Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs observes that there is a worldwide movement toward democracy and that this movement can be seen not only among nations but also in our families and schools. Children believe that they have a right to participate in the democratic process–which helps explain the questioning of authority that is now commonplace in homes and classrooms. While this tendency of students to question and to assert themselves can be stressful for adults, the trait will serve our children well when they become adults.
