This is an essential tool that puts the teacher in charge of the classroom while training students to learn to be in charge of themselves. Students will compete with themselves and monitor their own progress as they learn the skill of self-control. They will gain self-confidence as they learn that behavior is cause & effect and that they have the ability to manage themselves and avoid consequences. Students will learn to be accountable for their own actions. This is a positive approach to discipline as it teaches students a life skill instead of just being punitive without reflection.
