Maximizing Effectiveness Using Positive Behavior Support Methods in the Classroom:Linking Curriculum and Behavior

objectives
Objectives
  • Recognize the link between behavior and curriculum/instruction
  • Identify the fundamentals of a well- managed classroom
  • Identify research-based effective instructional practices
an educational approach to behavior support
An Educational Approach to Behavior Support
  • Because behavior problems are often a reflection of skill deficits…
  • …teaching is often the best intervention
  • Because instructional and curricular variables have been found to influence student behavior…
  • …adaptation of instruction and curriculum can result in improved behavior and increased opportunity for learning
learning challenging behavior
Learning & Challenging Behavior
  • Learning and behavior problems result from interaction between individuals and their environment
  • Instructional focus:
    • Identify individual and group needs
    • Identify environmental supports and/or adaptations required to meet needs
a well managed classroom
A Well-managed Classroom
  • Classroom management refers to all of the things that a teacher does to organize students, space, time, and materials so that instruction in content and students’ learning can take place.
characteristics of a well managed classroom
Characteristics of awell-managed classroom
  • Students are deeply involved in their work
  • Students know what is expected of them and are generally successful
  • There is relatively little wasted time, confusion, or disruption
  • The climate of the classroom is work-oriented, but relaxed and pleasant
good teaching practices
Good Teaching Practices
  • Researchers have identified a number of effective teaching strategies
  • Good teaching strategies benefit ALL students
  • Using good teaching practice results in more effective teaching and learning

Effective Instructional Practices (Westling & Fox, 1995)
  • Carefully plan instruction
  • Manage behavior effectively
  • Design instructional groups that meet learning needs
  • Present instructional materials/directions clearly

effective instructional practices westling fox 199510
Effective Instructional Practices(Westling & Fox, 1995)
  • Establish smooth, efficient classroom routines
  • Provide frequent feedback
  • Monitor performance
  • Review and reteach material as necessary
  • Integrate skills needed for adulthood into instruction (e.g., problem-solving skills)
  • Use homework primarily for fluency
  • Interact in a positive, caring manner
questions guiding curriculum
Questions Guiding Curriculum
  • Is the task/activity…
  • Appropriate given the students’ needs/preferences and chronological age?
  • Presented in a clear, organized fashion?
  • Too easy/difficult, short/long, fast/slow?
  • Functional (does it help achieve important outcomes)?
beyond best practice
Beyond Best Practice
  • Maintaining a well-managed classroom and using proven teaching practices is not always enough
  • The continued problem behavior of students CAN signal a need to further address teaching strategies and curriculum content at a more individualized level.
