  • Nagging, Yelling, Waiting for long periods of time
non verbal best
Non-verbal (best)
  • Proximity
  • Body orientation
  • Facial Expression
  • Gestures

Verbal Intervention:

  • Vocal Variation- lower your voice for an intervention
behaviorist intervention
Behaviorist Intervention
  • Assertive Discipline systems
  • Systems that focus on rewards are preferred but need both reward and consequences.
  • Punishment Guidelines:
    • Use infrequently
    • Apply immediately
    • Should try to eliminate behavior
    • Avoid using seat work as punishment
    • Apply logically and calmly- never in anger
intervention continuum
Intervention Continuum
  • Minor infractions: praise desired behavior; ignore inappropriate behavior; use indirect cues, use desists
  • Major infractions: use desists, apply consequences
  • Desist- teacher stops a student behavior:
    • Non-Verbal
    • Verbal: Call name; turn body slowly towards student, look at student seriously, wait one second, lower voice, state desired behavior, continue to look at student for 2 seconds.(Fred Jones model)
serious management problems outliers
Serious Management Problems: Outliers
  • Stop the incident
    • Yelling loudly (to stop a fight), make eye contact
  • Protect the victim
  • Get help
  • Legally, you must intervene in a fight but this can mean calling for administration and trying verbally to stop the fight.
long term solutions
Long Term Solutions
  • Work with parents
  • Work with guidance counselors
  • Students will have an RTI or IEP (plan for long term interventions to modify behaviors)
  • Find causes and approach problems with realistic goals.
  • Involve Students when possible
ergle s notes
Ergle’s Notes
  • Prevention and Planning is key for effective management
  • Your withitness and overlapping will improve during your first two years
  • Reflect! What parts of the day are not working well- try new strategies- don’t keep doing the SAME thing every day and think things will improve.
  • Take care of problems when they are SMALL.
  • Focus on the positive.
  • Don’t let one or two students ruin your class. Deal with them accordingly and enjoy the other students.
  • Don’t use group punishment- I hate that! Don’t you?
  • Do use group rewards to encourage a positive climate. Ex: COMPLIMENT.
ergle s questions
Ergle’s Questions
  • Are you organized and well-planned?
  • Do students understand and practice your routines and procedures?
  • Is there “dead” time for students during seat work?
  • What did you do to create a positive classroom climate?
  • Do you plan a variety of lessons and incorporate all learning styles and multiple intelligences?
  • Do the student get up and move or talk every 15 minutes or so during the day?
  • Do you use non-verbal desists and positive reinforcement regularly?
