Physical Education Discipline Matrix

I have a discipline matrix that I use as a guide in physical education when addressing situations that arise.  I use this matrix as a tool to refer to but also realize that in an attempt to make sure that things are always handled fairly in all situations that each individual situation should be treated as just that.  As the teacher I have knowlege of the history and circumstances as well as tactics to encourage a positive outcome and redirection.  My goal is always for correction rather than punishment in these situations.
