Reducing Bullying with ‘Tribes’
Abstract: Wendy Ryan writes about the Tribes program, which uses a whole-school, learning community model that aims to create a positive school climate through improved teaching and classroom management, positive interpersonal relations and opportunities for student participation. Ryan spent some time in a Tribes elementary school classroom to see the program in action. There, she observed incentive systems for good behavior in school assembles, as well as a token incentive system to promote pro-social behavior, which includes compliance with Tribes agreements.
