Alternative discipline is a framework for assigning meaningful discipline to students. Alternative/innovative discipline should include a restorative, reflective, and instructional component. Educators can use any combination of the three (i.e. two restorative, two instructional, and one reflective); there isn’t a secret formula for how many of each to use as long as you include all three. This guide provides a reflective framework for administrators to rethink suspension as the only consequence for disruptive behavior, offering bullying examples of each component in a quick and easy-to-read format.

On-Your-Feet Guides (OYFGs) provide you with the ultimate “cheat sheet” to implement effective change in your classroom while in the moment of teaching. Designed for accessibility, and providing step-by-step guidance, the OYFGs are written by experts who take research-based practices and make them doable for the busy teacher.


Each On-Your-Feet Guide is laminated, 8.5”x11” tri-fold (6 pages), and 3-hole punched.


Use the On-Your-Feet Guides:

  • When you know the “what” but need help with the “how"
  • As a quick reference to support a practice you learned in a PD workshop or book
  • To learn how to implement foundational practice
  • When you want to help your students learn a specific strategy, routine, or approach, but aren’t sure how to do it yourself
