Live Above the Line
At the workshop I attended last week, Quantum Learning, the presenter (Dan St. Romain) exposed us to the concept of living above the line. He was saying that teaching kids that life and behavior is about choices is the best way to handle classroom discipline. He suggested that living below the line is engaging in denial, laying of blame on others, constant justification, or just plain quitting. However, living above the line says the person is exhibiting truth, freedom, and power. I really liked this idea and I have been chewing on this for next school year.
