Program ComponentsThere are four ways to teach the fifteen self-discipline skills.
The four ways are:
1. Modeling the skills-Teachers form a code of ethics and model.
2. Pre-teaching about the skills before events occur.
3. Infusing the vocabulary and practices into an existing curriculum.
4. Discipline With Purpose lesson plans for teaching the skills.
To assist with this teaching a wide variety of
materials are available. For a complete listing of resources please go to the
1. Administrators /Coordinators Manual and DWP Committee
Guidebook used to develop the program over a period of 3 to 5 years.
2. Formal curriculum: Over 280 field tested lesson plans to
introduce and teach the 15 self discipline skills. Suitable for grades 1 thru 8.
3. Support materials: Materials for Specialists,
Kindergarten, Music, Physical Education, Art and Computer have been included in the program.
Since a formal curriculum is frequently not the best way to teach skills
when children are in a classroom once or twice a week, ideas to infuse the skills,
preteach the skills and use skill language are available for specialists.
4. Parent Component: Take home activities, Articles For Parents, Parent Workbook and Teaching Certificates.
5. Supplementary Materials: Postcards, Action plans,
Pre-teaching checklists, Skill charts and Anti-bully curriculum are designed to make the 15 self-discipline skills integral to
the school environment.
