  5. Better Than Carrots or Sticks: Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management

    Classroom management is traditionally a matter of encouraging good behaviour and discouraging bad by doling out rewards and punishments. But studies show that when educators empower students to address and correct misbehaviour among themselves, positive results are longer lasting and more wide reaching. Better Than Carrots or Sticks provides a practical blueprint for creating a cooperative and respectful classroom climate in which students and teachers work through behavioural issues together. Rewards and punishments may help to maintain order in the short term, but they're at best superficially effective and at worst counterproductive.
