This is certainly a tough question to consider. To Marcia Thompson,
I would offer a few observations. Humans have always lived through the
symbols they create. The line that needs to be drawn can be established by
the class as a whole in the beginning of the year. Many in the Eau Claire,
WI area have been drawn to the dynamics of Corwin Kronenberg. This
philosophy places the responsibility for conduct in the classroom on the
individual--there are
"above the line" expectations, and when conduct falls below this pre-established
line, the teacher needs to intervene with an inquiry to the individual
the peer pressure in this case can be a positive influence for all.
(Karen Horan invited me to tap into her "system" for this statement. Thanks
Marcia and Karen!) Bill Benson/ Art UWEC
