Managing Challenging Student Behaviors > Lesson 7 of 7

Logical Consequences

If you want your students to take responsibility for their actions and be motivated to change their behavior, implement logical consequences in your classroom.

Key Points

  • Logical consequences are tied to the student’s rule-breaking behavior. We provide examples and non-examples.
  • The goal is for the student to change their behavior and learn from their mistake. Enlist their help to fix the problem, providing suggestions and choice if necessary.

Insider Tips

After offering a suggestion for a consequence, ask, “Do you think that’s fair?’ It shows the student that you respect them and care what they think.
