#25: Rethinking discipline: Why consequences are only a small piece of the pie

Join me in this week's episode of The Unteachables Podcast as I dive into the power of an actionable approach to restorative practice. Through this ep I will help you to discover how accountability, reflection, and restoration can transform those frustrating behaviour challenges into golden teaching opportunities. Get ready for a refreshing approach that focuses on respect, support, collaboration, and meaningful discussions. I share my top foundational consequences, tailor-made to authentically right the wrongs and foster student accountability. No more one-size-fits-all punishments—these consequences gain maximum buy-in from your students and mitigate future challenges.  Restorative approaches are not about letting students get away with their behaviour or taking a soft approach. Quite the opposite! Discover why this method demands even greater accountability and reflection, empowering you to become a more skilled and effective teacher for all your students. I also unravel the secrets behind Jane Nelson's 3 Rs of logical consequences, and delve into why they're essential guideposts on this transformative journey. I’ve got your back as I unpack these Rs to ensure your consequences hit the bullseye. Most importantly, I introduce you to the heart of my restorative teaching practice—the transformative talks. I spill the tea on how these talks are your secret weapon to building connections, resolving challenges, and restoring relationships. I’ll explore the goals of these talks and when to unleash their power in your classroom. So, download for your commute, and get ready to explore **actionable** restorative practice.
