Developing a Unified, School-Wide Discipline Plan  Only Sold Electronically
$ 8.00 – Order Today!

For years, we educators have tried to gain consistency in our discipline plans by having the same punishment for the same rules. It has not worked and will not work. We have tried to develop a lock – step approach to discipline. This does not work. As principals, if we have heard it once, we have heard it a hundred times. Teachers say, “I get no support.” What Spencer Henry, a principal for twenty-three years, has done, is develop a process for administrators to use with a discipline committee to help them build a unified, school-wide discipline plan. This plan helps to bring about consistency without losing individuality and flexibility, and determine what will be supported and what will not be supported. This booklet was designed for principals, assistant principals and discipline committees to help them create their own unique school-wide discipline plan.

“Everything is provided. It is not a lock-step, canned approach, but a process that empowered us to develop our own unique discipline plan. Our teachers love it. I love it. I finally got consistency. We are all on the same page, and no longer do I hear, ‘I get no support.’”
Eric Bierman, Principal

Helping to Teach Children to Be Responsible – A Booklet for Parents Only Sold Electronically

This booklet provides parents or guardians with ideas on how to set limits in a respectful way.

The booklet explains techniques our children use on us to help them get their own way, and provides us with strategies that help us stop nagging, lecturing or arguing with our children.

“The desktop discipline cards are something I used frequently to help me identify the four goals of misbehavior. They also provided me with effective strategies to deal with the misbehavior.” “By using the desktop discipline cards, it forced me to learn to act, not react to misbehavior.”
C. Snyder, Teacher

“After 15 years of teaching special education, I found the Desktop Discipline Cards from Spencer Henry to be an invaluable resource. I tucked them in my top desk drawer and would pull them out when I was trying to understand the motivation behind repeated behavior by certain students. Once I was able to grab a quick glance at the cards and confirm my understanding of the motivation, then I had confidence in my response. After 22 years in special education I moved into a school counseling position. I have found I would refer to these cards when discussing student behavior strategies with teachers. These cards are such a quick and valuable resource for any educator.”
Lynn Sommer, Special Education Teacher and Guidance Counselor
