Conscious Discipline Linked to Classroom Quality and Executive Function

Conscious Discipline Linked to Classroom Quality and Executive Function

An independent research study on Ohio Preschool Promise classrooms using Conscious Discipline (CD) shows the potential impact of Conscious Discipline implementation on classroom quality and children’s executive function skills. Researchers utilized CLASS scores, the CD fidelity rubric, the Bracken Basic Concept Scale-Third Edition: Receptive, and the Minnesota Executive Function Scale in 45 classrooms. Results found that higher teacher fidelity to the Conscious Discipline model was associated with higher classroom quality, particularly in the Classroom Organization and Emotional Support domains. Children in classrooms with higher CD implementation fidelity had higher executive function skills in the spring, even after controlling for the overall classroom quality as measured by CLASS scores.
