Beneath every behavior is a feeling. And beneath every feeling is a need. And when we meet that need rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the cause not the symptom.

A quiet classroom is not always a sign of good classroom management. A classroom where students are safe, collaborating, learning, and treating each other with respect is a true sign of good classroom management.

There a reason behind every behavior. Seek to understand the why and coach students to identify their emotions and give them alternative strategies.

Students DON’T learn to ‘calm down’ by being told to calm down. They need to be taught ways to label their feelings (stop, name that feeling, do something about it). -Via
