EQ #1

How can we help our students
here at NERMS grow both socially
and academically?

It’s a matter of balance.


There are TWO elements to instruction


social and academic


Our middle class kids come with an
understanding of the social rules, but our
economically disadvantaged students do
not


Unless both elements are present, we’re
not reaching our students who are
children of poverty


Eric Berne’s Three Voices


Internal voices in
everyone’s head


The Child


The Parent


The Adult


The Child Voice

The Parent Voice

The Adult Voice

Stop and think.

In terms of “voice” what do our
children in poverty lack?


Implications for schools


Discipline should promote successful
behaviors




Structure and choice are important




Discipline should be a form of instruction

Focus #1: The Hidden Rules
About time and Money

Poverty

Middle Class



Survival



Work



Relationships



Achievement



Entertainment



Material Security

We cannot


Scold Students





Excuse or ignore their behavior

We can


Teach students there are two sets of rules


Example from Ruby Payne

If a student from poverty laughs when he is
disciplined, the teacher needs to say, “Do you use
the same rules to play all video games: No, you
don’t because you would lose. The same is true of
school. There are street rules and there are school
rules. Each set of rules helps you be successful
where you are. So, at school, laughing when
disciplined is not a choice. It does not help you be
successful. It only buys you more trouble. Keep a
straight face and look contrite, even if you aren’t.”
