Biblical Authority versus the Authoritarian and Permissive Teachers Worksheet

If Bible teachers are not exercising Biblical Authority then students might be receiving conflicting messages between what is said in the lesson and what the teacher does. The goal should be for everything that is said and done in the classroom to send a consistent message about who God is, how He relates with us, and how He desires us to treat one another.
In this 3 page reproducible teacher training worksheet you will do a comparison study of teachers exercising Biblical authority versus authoritarian and permissive teachers. You will answer questions based on this comparison that will help you consider the implications for how to manage the classroom.

Discipline Issues: What to Do About Specific Challenges Resource

When you view discipline as a training opportunity and not punishment, your outlook changes. You are better able to move from personal frustration and anger to what is best for the students. You are better able to step back and objectively look at the situation, to discern what is causing the problem and to accordingly administer discipline that has greater likelihood of helping students.
In this 61 page reproducible resource you will find the following:
  • one page for each of 56 different issues, looking at the challenge these discipline issues bring, possible causes, and ways to correct and better yet circumvent (prevent) problems.
  • a page of guidelines that are applicable to all specific issues which should be consistently applied regardless of the challenge
  • a one page survey you may copy and distribute to teachers to determine issues for which they most need input if you do not wish to make a copy of the entire booklet for each teacher
Following is a list of the 56 specific issues:
