A Design for Discipline
The LEAST approach is an organized response to discipline.
L eave things alone when no problems are likely to occur.
E nd the action indirectly when the behavior is disrupting classroom activities.
A ttend more fully when you need to obtain more information and/or communication.
S pell out directions when disruption and/or harm will occur.
T rack student progress when following through to evaluate and reinforce behavior.
The LEAST method was designed by teachers for teachers at all grade levels. It is a workable, "common sense" approach to dealing with behavior problems as they occur in the classroom.
