Here is my version of the final EERP document:
Concrete Action Step 1: sit and let the gorilla (the offending words) be acknowledged by all in the room.
Concrete Action Step 2: call a parent then and there to set up a physical meeting with the offending child present that day, and refuse to put it off to another day.
Concrete Action Step 3: the student is removed to the back of the room or, better, to the classroom of a willing colleague where he/she works on translating old stories or on grammar packets. Yumma yumma!
Concrete Action Step 4: the student should NOT be removed to a classroom of peers but to a class of students younger than they are or much older so that the situation is uncomfortable for them where no “badge of honor” is possible.
Concrete Action Step 5: after the kid is removed: a class discussion about what just happened follows. No discussion of the person here – we address only the behavior.
Concrete Action Step 6: no warnings, just action in the form of a machine.
No discussion is to occur about the offense, from the second you decide to act on the offense, as the child would then further accomplish their goal of disruption of the class. The first thing we might here is, “What did I do?” in a kind of outraged voice. The answer should be silence, or, if anything, one simple statement: “We’ll talk about that with your parents/and or the administration.” Watch for some real bulling and abuse at this time. Relax. Just let the machine take over. That is what I plan to do. Let the machine do what it is programmed to do.
