How positive discipline and class meetings can positively affect the classroom learning environment
The research question addressed in this project was, in what ways will the use of positive discipline and class meetings affect the learning environment in my fifth grade classroom? It documents one teacher's eight-week implementation of the positive discipline methods and class meeting process as discussed in the book Positive Discipline: Developing Mutual Respect, Cooperation, and Responsibility in Your Classroom (2000) by Jane Nelsen, Lynn Lott, and Stephen Glenn. The outcomes of the study were based on data collected from student journaling, parent surveys, and teacher observations. Results indicated that as a result of positive discipline strategies and regular class meetings students began to interact with each other more effectively, resolve conflicts more efficiently, and developed an increased awareness of other people's perspectives.
