The Magic Ratio John Gottman and colleagues (1998) explored the positive to negative ratios in marriage. Using a 5:1 ratio, which Gottman dubbed “the magic ratio”, he and his colleagues predicted whether 700 newlywed couples would stay together or divorce by scoring their positive and negative interactions in one 15-minute conversation between each husband and wife.
Ratio of Interactions at least Plan to interact at least three times more often with each student when they are behaving appropriately, rather than misbehaving. at least Plan to interact at least sixteen times more often with students that have disabilities or students who are at-risk when they are behaving appropriately, rather than misbehaving. 10
Making the Most of 3 to 1 Make eye contact Use behaviorally specific language Provide immediate feedback Acknowledge appropriate behavior often
Structure/organize the areas Teach students how to behave responsibly in the area Observe student behavior (supervise!) Interact positively with students Correct calmly, consistently, and immediately in the setting in which the infraction occurred
Rules Vs. Procedures (CHAMPS) The purpose of rules is to set boundaries or limits Rules are unchanging and set school wide. No more than six rules at a time. Each teacher holds different expectations. Procedures concern how things are done and are statements of student expectations. Procedures and routines teach what students are to do or work at. Classroom management plans have procedures.

Academics affect behavior… Behavior impacts academics! Based on review of 11,000 studies spanning 50 years, researchers determined… the most important factor governing student learning is classroom management. Margaret Wang, Geneva Haertel, & Herbert Walberg, 1994
Classroom Management All the things a teacher does to organize students’, space, time, and materials is so that student learning can take place. Students want a well-managed classroom...because a well-managed classroom gives students security. There are no surprises and no yelling in a classroom where everyone knows what is happening and everyone respects each other.
If You Want a Behavior, You Have to Teach It! Prepare, prepare, prepare Teach expectations Model Behavior “Look like” Acknowledge students who demonstrate the skill Regularly communicate with students and parents Greet students daily Avoid confusion and wasted time Teach Routines
