Yes, Mrs. R, you are correct. His behavior plan is part of his IEP, so it's followed directly. When he starts to get angry, the prompt is "you may do _____ or ask to take a break". They (meaning the behavioralist, special ed. teachers, school psychologist, etc.) want him to learn when he feels like he needs a break and then ask for it (rather than escalating to the point of eloping, destroying the room, or going off in a screaming rant).

For the rest of my class, I tell them "take a break" when needed. I do have to say that I love the philosophy behind RC. Most teachers would tally infractions and then have students lose recess or another privilege. I like how "take a break" is an immediate logical consequence.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts! I really appreciate your time!
