    • A curriculum of specific life skills taught as expectations in the classroom
    • Teaching methods that support the life skills curriculum – specific ways to teach the life skills to students
    • Administrative intervention – a method for dealing with students who are referred to the office from the classroom because of disruptive behavior
    • Focus on student competencies – creating a positive classroom environment by encouraging teachers to see the value of developing a positive relationship with each student and praising students’ positive behaviors and successes

    These components are part of a complete system-wide approach to creating and encouraging respectful staff-student relationships by changing the way schools address student behavior.
