the teachers

Each thread should be 250 – 300 words in length, include thought-provoking, clearly focused, and fully supported sentences.   Be sure not to use first person at any point during the course (except for when the discussion question calls for a personal response).  Must address each part of discussion post.



Think back to the teachers you have encountered in your own school or some you have recently observed.  How would you categorize their approaches to discipline?  Were there behavior modification advocates or did the focus on logical consequences and encouragement?  Which way are you leaning now?
