Don't Suspend Me!: An Alternative Discipline Toolkit by Jessica Djabrayan Hannigan, John E. Hannigan

Learn how alternative discipline methods can create long-term change

Suspensions don’t work. They don’t improve behavior and they don’t address the social-emotional needs of students. There are better, alternative discipline methods that can create positive, meaningful long-term changes in the behavior of challenging students. Aligned with educational law, Don’t Suspend Me! gives educators the tools they need to apply these alternative methods. Readers will find

  • A toolkit with alternative strategies to use for the most common behavior challenges
  • Case study examples and testimonials from educators in the field
  • Worksheets and exercises for the major discipline incidents that occur in schools
  • Answers to commonly asked questions
