16Principals of Human Behavior Product of its immediate environmentStrengthened/weakened by its consequencesResponds better to positive than negativePunished or reinforced? Watch rate over timePast behavior is best predictor of future behavior
17Immediate Environment If students act out, something in classroom is initiating and maintaining itIdentify those things and take dataWho likes math?Goofing off during math gets student kicked out of room. What’s that student going to do more of?
18All children can learn, even children from dysfunctional families The answers to problems within an environment are to be found within that environment
19Your Job Is to Create the Most Pleasant Environment Possible Change the Environment and the Behavior Will Change
20Behavior Strengthened or Weakened by Its Consequences Not a problem with the studentTeachers often reinforce the very behaviors that disrupt the classFrequent teacher attention in the form of praise is more effective than rules or reprimands in increasing appropriate behavior
21Behavior Responds Better to Positive Than to Negative Teacher attention is a powerful reinforcer of appropriate and inappropriate student behaviorTeachers allow over 95% of all appropriate behavior to go unrecognizedTeachers are typically four to six times more likely to attend to inappropriate behavior than appropriateTeacher attention to inappropriate behavior increases probability that such behavior will be strengthened and thus occur predictably and with regularity
22Your Job Is to Identify the Behaviors You Want to Strengthen or Weaken and Deliver, or Withhold, the Appropriate Consequences
23Whether a Behavior Has Been Punished or Reinforced Is Known Only by the Future Course of That BehaviorWhat is punishing to one child might be reinforcing to another, and vice-versa.Take data!If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always gotten.
24Your Job Is to Be Patient and Consistent. Wait Two Weeks and See Your Job Is to Be Patient and Consistent. Wait Two Weeks and See. Record Behavior.If What You Are Doing Works- Keep It. If Not, Go Back to Tool Skills and Change Them

28Latham’s Tools for Positive Behavior Change Staying closeGiving positive consequencesIgnoring junk behaviorIgnoring junk behavior of one person and giving positive consequences for the appropriate behavior of another person
29Latham’s Tools for Positive Behavior Change Stop-redirect-give positive consequencesSetting expectationsUsing a contractTime-outABC’s of assessing behaviorConsulting skills of staff
30Staying CloseYou create a safe, positive environment and establish yourself as a source of caring, empathy, and positive consequencesThe closer you are to a person, the greater the influence you have on them
31How to Stay ClosePhysically- be within arms length, walk and sit with, move toward themTouch appropriately- pat on back or arm, squeeze shoulderFacial expressions- emote accurately, show one messageTone of voice- how you say it countsBody language- be relaxed, open arms, eye contact, orient to personShow empathy- mirror feelings (sounds like your happy or yuk, that was hard to do)
32Giving Positive Consequences You focus primarily on building up appropriate behaviors with positive consequencesShow behavior you like by giving attention; Establish self as safe to be with; Maintain self control; Have a plan; Practice saying what you like and providing a positive consequence that fits appropriate behavior within 3 seconds
33Types of Positive Consequences Verbal praiseAppropriate touchTangible itemsPrivileges and activities
34“Unless what you are about to say or do has a high probability of making things better, don’t say it and don’t do it” (Latham)
35Ignoring Junk Behavior You carefully ignore any age typical behavior that may be annoyingAnnoying but not harmful to self,others, or propertyExamples….
36Ignore Junk Give Positive to Other You carefully ignore junk behavior of one person while giving positive consequences for the appropriate behavior of another personExamples…
37Stop-Redirect-Give Positive Consequences You stop a person’s inappropriate behavior, redirect them to a different, logically related behavior, and show you like it by giving positive consequences when the person does it
38Setting ExpectationsYou let the person know what behavior is expected and what the consequences will be for meeting or not meeting the expectationsPick a time; A place; Set a pleasant tone; State what specific behavior you expect and what benefits are to person; Model and get person to show expected behavior; Giving instead of taking
39Designing Expectations Clearly state context for behaviorClearly state behavior you want to see (provide model if necessary)Clearly state consequence for following
41Maintaining Expectations Praise completion (3-4 per minute)Students should be able to state teacher expectations to anyone, anytime, anywhereDisplay expectations around roomDisplay schedule
42ContractWritten agreement with the student that identifies positive expectations and consequences
43Time-OutInterrupt student’s behavior to minimize consequences and allow you to attend to appropriate behaviors after the person has maintained a brief period of calmTime-based… not behavior based!Need good analysis, remember the disruptive student in math class
44ABC’s and Consulting Skills Example of ABCUse school counselors to help develop parent skills across settings
458 Kinds of Coercion Criticism Sarcasm/Teasing Threats/Force Arguing GuiltLogicQuestioning
46Results of Coercion Student will learn coercive behavior Student will try to avoid coercive behavior by escaping and lyingStudent will try to get evenStudent will become afraid that they will failStudent will receive attention for inappropriate behavior
47Coercion produces only short term compliance followed by long term losses. In the long run, behavior responds better to positive consequences.
48“My mother used to tell me that to get along in this world you gotta be either oh so smart or oh so pleasant. For a long time I was smart. I recommend pleasant.” (Elwood P. Dowd)

53Hey MA! Reinforcer assessments Choice or Demand? (Intraverbal statements)Setting up your classroom
54Effective Teachers Ensure high level of student engagement with tasks Provide frequent and detailed feedbackUse carefully sequenced materialsEstablish clear routines and expectationsDeal with several things at onceJudge quickly the importance of an event and intervene
55Are aware of entire classroom despite distraction; are monitoring students frequently Time their actions for maximum effectGive attention to more than one student at a time; they pivotManage transition timeExhibit unconditional positive regard
56Preventive Actions Taken Before Students Enter the Room Room arrangement should invite productive behaviorWalkwaysDistance between student stationsMinimal seductive itemsArrange materials for ease of use
57Arrange materials for instructional control Develop a system for distributing and receiving materialsDevelop a strategy for setting learning skill expectationsDevelop routinesUncomplicatedSustainableSupport educational goals
58Identify possible rewards Identify anticipated behaviors of concernPlan all lessons thoroughlyCarefully schedule instructional timeDetermine how you will move and monitorDetermine how you will reduce frustrationIdentify potential competing contingenciesSelect signals and key phrases
59Know your behavior management strategies Know your treatment optionsKnow your staff and resources
60That Was All Before the Students Entered the Room? Yes
61Students in the Room Manage transition times What to do with current materialsWhat materials are needed for next activityWhere will next task take placeWhat are the expectations for next taskBe clear about when it’s time to begin movingBe clear about time allowed for move
62Be clear about expectations for move Quickly establish instructional control at next siteContinuously monitor students’ performanceUse cues in advance of BOC’sManage behavior discreetly
63Minimize interruptions and disruptions Follow through immediately on all rules- no warningsAvoid higher and higher thresholds
