2 “The children of today love luxury “The children of today love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect to adults, and love to talk rather than work or exercise. They contradict their parents, chatter in front of company, gobble up food at the table, and intimidate their teachers.”

They contradict their parents, chatter in front of company, gobble up food at the table, and intimidate their teachers.” Socrates attributed to Plato 470 BC–399 BC
7 A Brief History of Classroom Management Research Systematic study a rather recent phenomenon.Kouinin (1970)“Withitness”Smoothness and momentum during lesson presentationClear expectations for students.Variety and challenge in work assigned to students.
8 A Brief History of Classroom Management Research Brophy and Evertson (1976)Findings support Kounin’s earlier workMajor finding: Classroom Management is a CRITICAL aspect of effective teaching.
9 A Brief History of Classroom Management Research The Classroom Strategy Study (Brophy 1996;) Brophy & McCaslin,1992).Major Finding: Effective managers employed different types of strategies with different types of students, whereas ineffective managers employed the same strategies regardless of the type of student or the situation.
10 A Brief History of Classroom Management Research Series of 4 studies by the Research and Development Center for Teacher Education in Austin, Texas. (Early 80’s) (Evertson, Emmer, Sanford, Clements, and Martin)Major findings:Support earlier work of KouninEarly attention to Classroom Management at the beginning of the year was critical to a well-run classroom.Teachers can improve management techniques through training (study and practice)
11 Classroom Management That Works (Marzano, 2003) Meta analysisExamined effectiveness of 5 components of classroom managementRules and ProceduresDisciplinary InterventionsTeacher-Student RelationshipsMental SetPromoting Responsibility
12 Rules and ProceduresRules are location specific behavioral expectationsProcedures tell students what to do when, promote student independence and free the teacher to teach, monitor and interact.
13 Disciplinary Interventions Actions taken by the teacher in response to student behavior in order to influence behavior.Examples from participants
14 Teacher to Student Relationship Clear Purpose and Strong GuidanceEffective InstructionHigh Level of CooperationAttentive to Student NeedsModeling

19 Criteria for Classroom Rules Rules are based on 3-5 broad social principlesUse your SW ExpectationsRules describe location-specific behaviorWhat does it look like?Rules are stated positivelyInvolve students in the development.Publicly post the rules.The first statement really refers to the general principles or concepts that will guide everyone’s behavior at all times. Why do we do that—why is this effective?The rule really operationalize the broad principles, the rules tell us what “respect looks like.”Ask someone to read the 3rd bullet and ask everyone to turn to their neighbor and tell them what that means. Then ask for volunteer to share and then ask all of them to think of an example. Ask for a volunteer.Students can be involved in the development in lots of ways—you can start with the principles and ask students what they should look like in the classroom, think through what they need from others to be successful. You can offer the list and students may offer those that can be hard and you will help them generate natural supports and other types of supports,Make the public posting fun and colorful. Use students. Tie to mascot or theme.
20 Rules are based on broad social principles/expectations Just an example of the school-wide expectations and a catchy label. Every teacher in the building build their classroom rules and procedures around these broad principles.
21 Be on time with all materials. Classroom RulesResponsibilityBe on time with all materials.Have your work completed by the deadline.Work on the task that the teacher tells you to work on.Follow procedures—check the posters when unsure.RespectUse kind and caring words.Use voice levels 0-3 as directed.Take turns and share materials.SafetyKeep unfriendly, unwanted and overly friendly hands and feet to self.Walk at all times.Keep all chair legs on floor.Keep prohibited items at home.What are the guidelines for rule development—turn to your neighbor—there are five guidelines for developing rulesYou have a copy of this—it is in the right hand side pocket of your notebooks--it is _____ color. Pull out this handout and the purple one that follows it.Give them 15 minutes toLook at these classroom rules. Are there any that you would change because they don’t fit our guidelines?? (Only three guidelines can be assessed) Turn to your neighbor and discuss which rules you would change because they don’t fit the guidelines.

24 Partner Work Read through a sample set of rules. (handout) (15 minutes total-- 8 min to prepare and 7 min to share)Read through a sample set of rules. (handout)Look back at the criteria.Identify rules which meet the criteria-mark somehow.Make improvements to those that don’t.Working backwards, what broad principles would you tie these rules to?

Many teachers prefer this because it more accurately describes what is really expected. Using this framework really helps with “say what you mean.”What’s the difference between what theThe procedures themselves are not written here, although some steps might be. Here we see at attempt to describe what the broad principles mean for behavior during the event in question.Go back to the _________ handout. What I’m going to ask you to do right now is either develop a set of classroom rules connected to 3-5 broad social principles, or connect your existing rules to some broad social principles, and/or make improvements to your existing set of rules, using the guidelines we developed.
26 Teach Expectations, Rules and Procedures Teach expectations directly.State the rule in concrete termsTell Students WhyProvide students with examples and non-examples of rule-following.Provide examples via demonstration.Actively involve students in lesson— game, role-play, etc., to check for their understanding.Provide opportunities to practice rule following behavior in the natural setting.It is not enough to develop rules, they must be taught. Even if we think the students know how to follow the rules, teaching the rules is a necessary way to communicate to the students our commitment to the rules, and our commitment for making these very clear to them.The best lessons are upbeat and fun, because they engage students. It is critical that students have an opportunity to practice.
27 Prompt or Remind Students of the Rules Provide students with visual prompts (e.g., posters, illustrations, etc).Use pre-corrections, which include: “verbal reminders, behavioral rehearsals, or demonstrations of rule-following or socially appropriate behaviors that are presented in or before settings where problem behavior is likely” (Colvin, Sugai, Good, Lee, 1997).Once we have developed and taught the rules to students, it is important to have the rules very close by to provide visual support in the form of prompts and reminders. Visual prompts can be used later to redirect students in a way that defers to a higher authority.The rules themselves can also help me, the classroom teacher, quickly put together precorrections—particularly behavioral rehearsals and demonstrations.turn to your partner and offer an example of a behavior problem that you currently precorrect.Prep for next conceptDeveloping rulesTeaching Rules,Reminding and prompting the rules –all are necessary, but we also must do something else with the rules. What else must we do—ask your partner.
28 Monitor Students’ Behavior in Natural Context Active Supervision (Colvin, Sugai, Good, Lee, 1997):Move aroundLook around (Scan)Interact with studentsProvide reinforcement and specific praise to students who are following rules.Catch errors early and provide specific, instructive feedback to students who are not following rules. (Think about how you would correct an academic error.)Yes. that’s right, we must follow through with the rules. And the way that we follow through is by providing active supervision not only to prevent problem behavior but also so that we are aware of behaviors that need to be reinforced or corrected.
29 Evaluate the Effects of Instruction Collect informationAre rules being followed?If there are errors,who is making them?where are the errors occurring?when are errors being made?what kind of errors are being made?Summarize information (look for patterns)Use information to make decisionsHow many of you have used the phrase, “I taught it, but he didn’t get it.” the next step is to use information coming from your examination of behavior patterns to decide if you might need to re-teach.If you have many kids making errors, you probably do not have an individual kid problem, it is problem a matter of instructional match, ill-defined procedures, or a lack of prompts and reminders.In this new paradigm of teaching behavior, when students make mistakes, we think about teaching differently or making changes to the procedures.

41 Tangible Recognition = Refers to any type of concrete recognition or reward offered by teacher.=
42 Types of Differential Reinforcement DR…of lower rates of behavior (DRL)DR…of other behaviors (DRO)DR…of alternative behavior (DRA)DR…of incompatible behavior (DRI)42
43 Direct Cost Move seat Briefly remove access to materials Restitution or OvercorrectionToken economiesLoss of privilegeIsolation time out
44 Group Contingency Three types: “All for one” (Interdependent Group Contingency)“One for all”(Dependent Group Contingency)“To each his/her own” (Independent Group Contingency)
45 Home Contingency Most basic—Information shared More detailed—parents collaborate to establish home consequencesRequires face to face meetingRequires record keeping and communicationPop quiz: A)Only for problem behaviorB) For problem and positive behaviorC) Only for positive behaviorD) B or C
