"Are you looking for a way to reduce the disruptions and discipline problems that steal valuable instructional time? Here is a program that does just that—using literacy vignettes as vehicles to confront behavior issues and move from teacher control to student self-management. • The School Dayz plan is a collection of stories about the real issues that happen in everyday school life—familiar problems such as rudeness, cheating, bullying, cell phone use, stealing, harassment, disruptions, truancy, vandalism, peer pressure, anger, fear, discrimination, gossip, fighting, self-destructive behavior, and drug use. • Students discuss an issue, then read and interact with a story about it. They connect the story to their own experiences, reflect on their own attitudes and behaviors, analyze the issue, discuss underlying causes of the behaviors, and recommend solutions. • The approach is classroom tested. It works! Behavior improves! Teachers and students testify to positive changes: fewer disruptions, better attendance, and greater responsibility—along with increased self-esteem, compassion, and sense of belonging."
