Tim Hibsman (English Department) published an article titled “Uniforms Suck: Teaching Through Consequences” in the August 2019 issue of Teacher Plus magazine. The article takes an anecdotal learning approach to show examples of how students process instructions.

In this article, Hibsman points out that the student needs to understand that there are many different choices they can make, and each choice may have positive and negative consequences to themselves and others. The conclusion of the article provides a practical Lessons Learned section to help the practicing teacher use new techniques in the classroom.

Supported by Azim Premji University, Bangalore, Teacher Plus is the magazine for the contemporary teacher. Created in 1989, Teacher Plus is a publication aimed primarily at the schoolteacher. It is a forum within which teachers can raise their concerns, discuss ideas, and share and update their knowledge.

Teacher Plus discusses alternative ways of thinking and doing within the context of the Indian classroom, while recognizing the constraints that most teachers face, day to day. In addition, its aim is to foster a sense of community among teachers, of being a part of an important group of change, and help teachers keep up with trends in education and ways to energize her/his classroom with new ideas and approaches.
