1463. Assigning useful and educative punishments or detentions

Teacher A said to teacher B, “Don’t lose your temper in the classroom if you get mad, upset, cross. 

At that moment I would tell you not to assign detention or punishment. 

Don’t assign any punishment or detention he won't be able to fulfill if he repeats his getting distracted and getting other classmates distracted. 

For example if you tell that student to remain in the classroom for a week during the recess, you’re assigning a detention to yourself, because you will have to remain with him at the recess too. 

Don’t tell a student that he’ll get fail in his exams if he repeats a misbehaving action. 

Set correcting and educative punishments. You do know he can carry them out, like translating a text in English into his Spanish mother language, or from Spanish into English. 

Or assign something useful for the community of the students plus the teacher, like picking up pieces of paper from the classroom floor after the class.” / Photo from: milkman. www elpasoinc com
