Students will identify their undesirable behavior and as well as what they will do next time in order to stay out of trouble. This allows students to take responsibility for their actions. Many times students do not understand what they did wrong and how to fix it.
I hand the forms to students who are behaving inappropriately. I do not have to stop teaching and redirect the student. They know they must fill out the form when I hand it to them. Most students do not like to fill them out and the threat of the form has cut down on classroom disruptions.
