What developmental aspects of learners need to be considered when guiding behavior in a classroom? Psychosocial – social and emotional (quiet or shy vs. fun loving vs. disrespectful) Intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation Cognitive – does the learner understand the rule and why the rule exists? Are there developmental delays that may impede understanding? Physical – is the learner able to do the expectation? Cultural – what connection exists between culture and development?
Exploring Question In what ways are techniques modified for special needs learners?
How does learner behavior and development impact the learning process? Disruptive behavior requires attention Student understanding of expectations must be considered Developmentally Appropriate Inappropriate Behavior must be considered Character education encourages respect Respectful learning environments mean less time addressing behavior and more time spent in learning Conflict resolution encourages critical thinking and problem solving
