I don’t know where this came from or who wrote it originally. If you know, please let me know so I can give proper credit. I found this in the first school I taught at in (of all places) the bathroom. But they are true statements. If we can be proactive as teachers in these areas and answer them before they arise, most misbehavior in classrooms will simply disappear.
I have no idea where this originally comes from. I found the list my first year of teaching the in the school. To be specific, I found it on the wall of the staff bathroom. So I made a copy of it and then created this image. I will say that keeping these reasons in the back of my mind when a student has behaved has helped me out immensely. It is compassion. And we all need a little bit of compassion in education.
