Alternatives to Collective Punishment

Sometimes an individual or group behaves in a way that is not productive for the entire group.

Repetition of behavior that is not productive presents a challenge for the entire group.

Larry Ferlazzo posted the article “Alternatives to Collective Punishment” where he commented on his experience: “ask students to consider the impact their actions have on others, and ask them to try to work it out among themselves. In my eight-year teaching career, this has almost always resulted in stopping the inappropriate behavior and, I hope, students gaining some added maturity.”

Here is a Google Form that will be used to discuss alternatives to collective punishment.
