When a student exhibits an undesirable behavior, a teacher's options are limited. One can call home, or assign a punishment. Often, assigning a punishment, such as lunch detention, requires a teacher to give up his or her own "free" time. Referring the student to the main office for an administrative punishment is often too harsh for the student's unwanted behavior.
The Fix-It-Plan is a measure in between. It guides students to think about the behavior and contemplate how it effects learning and the feelings and learning of others. The student is also directed to come up with a plan to curb his or her own behavior and write an apology letter to any students or adults who may have been effected by the student's behavior. The apology note can be shared with any offended party.
