Clip to ScrapBook #3

I read Discipline without Stress last spring before I had heard of RC and tried it out a little in my classroom. I liked the overall concept and it made much more sense to me than the punitive clipchart behavior system I had been using and WAY too many rewards. I felt a little lost, though, as it didn't give very much guidance about what to do in certain situations. Now that I've discovered RC this summer I am soooo excited about this school year! RC books are excellent - and give so much guidance and steps you can follow. I started with Rules in School which gives a great quick overview of how to start the school year developing rules with your class. I am also in the middle of Teaching Children to Care and Power of our Words- both very excellent. I would probably start with the Morning Meeting book and Rules in School to get you started, but Teaching Children to Care is REALLY wonderful, too.
