Behavioral Intervention in the Classroom
“Discipline is not something I impose upon you so I can control you. Rather it is something that must develop within yourself so you can become the best person you can be, not the one that could have been.”-Timothy F. Hough
You must feel the excitement of reward to understand the sting of defeat.Make It Happen!!
Take time to evaluate the issue at hand calmly and objectively. (If you feel unable to do this, ask for help. Two opinions are always better than one)
Release tensions which have built up because of past failures. (Is your first response to this child one of anger or frustration?)
Are you taking it personally? Spend a day looking for only the things your student does right. Is it better?
Know the history. Read up on the student. Call and talk to the parents. Understand that behavior is a learned habit…this child is doing what works for him/her.Most of my class gets it, why can’t Johnny?
“The motivation for all personal behavior is to produce a sense of “FEEL GOOD,” a sense of inner peace and well being. To expect a person to go against his desire to feel good or as good as he can feel under any momentary condition is illogical and irrational. In the observation of human behavior, one will notice every human act is a response to a personal need. This is true whether one signs a million dollar contract, scratches one’s nose, rolls over in bed, or just dreams his life away. People will do things which seem contrary to this concept, but the bottom line is they perceive some kind of payoff which will make them feel good. And the payoff is almost always emotional. When you ask a person why they want to be financially independent, they might say that they could but things without having to worry about where the money will come from. And when they worry, they don’t FEEL GOOD. A drug addict, a compulsive eater, and alcoholic, and anyone with a compulsive habit will continue with their habits because at the moment of action they believe and feel it will make them feel good. That is why breaking compulsive habits are so difficult.-Sidney Madwed
