In the classroom

Character Education Program

Program Benefits
Behavior Management

A question interrupts an unwanted behavior and the answer suggests a more suitable, positive behavior.

 

Student Participation

The questions provide an opportunity for students to have input into the decisions that affect them. By verbalizing responses, students are basically telling themselves what to do.

 

Think It To Happen

By practicing the Just Do the Right Thing principles, students are conditioned to pay attention to what they are thinking in the moment and how these thoughts affect their behavior. Verbalizing/self-directing is the start of them taking ownership of their actions.

 

Plant The Seed of Right Thinking

Daily repetition instills accepted life principls that will guide students to make the right decisions.

 

An Effective Discipline Tool

One of the best advantages for teachers who use the program in the classroom relates te discipline.

Why It Works

The Goal

The overarching goal of “Just Do the Right Thing”  in the classroom is to create “Success in the Moment.”  When students learn how to “start at right” in their moment to moment decisions, they greatly increase their chances for continued, long term success.

The Power of a Question

By its very nature, a question prompts thoughts and reflection. When you stop and think, even for a moment, you have a better chance of making the right decision.

Repetition

Repeating information is a proven way of strengthening learning skills and remembering important information.

The Process

The focal point of Just Do The Right Thing in the Classroom is a list of ten core principles delivered in an easy to use question / answer format. The process couldn’t be easier.  Teachers simply ask the questions every day and the repetition gives students a clear understanding of expectations. This allows them to firmly internalize the principles and act upon them when necessary.

Pattern Interrupt

Pattern interrupt is a powerful “classroom management” tool.  The appropriate question interrupts an unwanted behavior and the corresponding answer suggests a more suitable behavior.  But because the student verbalizes the answer, they are participating in the decisions that affect them. They are self-directing, and it gives them CONTROL over what happens next.  This is the first step to them taking ownership of their actions. People, even children, don’t argue with their own conclusions. When they SAY IT, they DO IT!

Think it to Happen

Just Do The Right Thing encourages proactive decision making. There’s a huge difference between “thinking” something to happen and “allowing” something to happen. The questions allow students to “respond intelligibly” instead of “react instinctively.” When you teach students to “think right,” you won’t have to tell them to “do right.”
