I like to use Time Out or In-School Suspension as a teaching moment. Getting students to reflect can help them make better choices in the future. This is a packet I use; it seems to get the students to see me as someone who wants to help rather than the "enemy". It is always a good idea to wait until they have calmed down before expecting them to begin writing.
