Unit 8: Video Case Studies
In this video, a teacher from Delta, Colorado is facing abuse charges after implementing a classroom discipline system.
- Teachers have a fiduciary responsibility to act in their students’ best interest and protect them from harm (physically, emotionally and psychological). Is the discipline policy implemented by this teacher consistent with this expectation?
- The teacher could argue that doing sit-ups and push-ups is acceptable considering these are activities that students would be asked to do in their physical education classes. Do you agree with this argument?
- What type of classroom culture does this discipline policy create?
