Which sample dialog below will earn the driver the most cooperation from the student?
A. "[Student s nam, will you please move up to this seat right here?" B. "[Student s nam, you have 10 seconds to get into your assigned seat or your off the bus." C. "[Student s nam, turn around and quit yelling or I ll have your ass in an assigned seat until the end of the year!"
"[student s name], will you please move up to this seat right here?"-being friendly and polite is usually the best policy when dealing with 5th - 12th graders. this makes the student feel like the move is not punishment, but rather an inconvenience. using profanity on the school bus is an absolute no-no!! Issuing a order, and telling the student there will be punishment if they dont obey is an okay way of managing discipline issues in 7th - 9th grades, but outside of that age group, it causes students to want to rebel and usually ends up escalating the situation. the only tried and proven method that has seen the most results, is being friendly, kind, and gentle. it appears to make all the difference.
