"As a former practitioner, I always wanted each encounter with

About the Program
The Latin root
of the word discipline is disciplina, which means "instruction given." Every encounter with
students has the potential for teaching and learning. This is especially so with encounters made during the discipline
process. Interactions with students can be particularly fruitful when students are allowed to consider choices and consequences
and make the connection between cause and effect.
At the request of educators, Project Wisdom created these simple but powerful intervention tools that take students
Beyond the Infraction® and toward the goal of learning from poor choices. Administrators and counselors can employ
these tools to initiate conversations with students involved in the discipline process, place the worksheets and notes
into student files, and use them as communication tools with teachers and parents.
