An Annotation by Holly Waterman

Children are researchers.  They will constantly question who’s in charge and what types of behaviors they can get away with.  Teachers need to set limits in the classroom to avoid disruptive behaviors to even take place.  This article mentions the six properties of effective consequences as well as appropriate and inappropriate ways of handling a variety of situations that students may test against their teachers.
