5 Supporting Positive Behaviour in Alberta Schools Key Element Seven: Fair and Predictable Consequences

6 Motivation “Motivation only enables us to do what we are already capable of doing.”

7 Creating Choices With Creative Consequences: Positive Consequences Positive consequences = something the child wants that you feel comfortable giving

8 Key Element #5: Fair and Predictable Consequences Reductive consequences = something the child does not like that you feel comfortable giving

9 Discipline Means “to teach” …it is about learning not about retribution or revenge D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour

10 Types of positive reinforcement What are some ways that you use to motivate students through the use of reductive consequences? ________________________________

11 Types of Fair and Predictable Consequences Redirecting Planned ignoring Correction and overcorrection Restitution Response Cost – removing or withholding preferred activities Time away Time out

12 Guidelines of using Reductive Consequences (p. 67) Clarity for behaviour and consequences Deliver the consequence – Do not threaten – Do! Use for teaching – not for punishing Be consistent- it is not the severity that is important it is the consistency Be sensitive of how and when the consequence is delivered Deliver in a matter of fact manner Be aware of neurological factors that may hinder usefulness of consequences

13 Pitfalls of Punishment (p. 68) Does not teach correct behaviour May result in reduced self concept or belief as a “behaviour problem” Consequences at school may be mild compared to experiences at home Activities/people associated with punishment may become punishing

14 Giving Corrective Feedback (School wide pg. 50) Avoid delivering negative consequences in front of others Describe behaviour – in calm nonjudgmental manner Encourage student to describe behaviour that would have been more appropriate Prompt with reminders (if necessary) Ask them to commit to that positive behaviour Thank them for their attention D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour

15 Making Restitution (School-wide pg. 52) After having hurt others – consider a “caring menu” (in addition to or as an alternative to “sorry” Write a note Draw a picture Help with project or chore Share a book Play a game Make a card D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour

16 What is the problem with the following sequences? 1)Every time that Johnny is off task when the instructions are given the EA “Scolds him and then tells him what he is suppose to do. 2)Peter, who has Autism, sent out of the room whenever he becomes agitated 3)Betty gets into a verbal confrontation with Sally – she is sent to the principal’s office to work – during the time in the principal’s office she completes her homework D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour

17 Positive Reinforcement: Classroom Procedures Kevin is frequently out of his desk – so are many of the others in the class - What is 1 thing that you could do on a classroom basis to respond when he displays the undesired behaviour? ________________________________

18 Creating Choices With Creative Consequences

19 Suspensions and Expulsions Read Pages in School-wide approach to recognize the Disadvantages of Expulsion D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour

20 Remember… The ratio of positive reinforcement delivered for good behaviours and through non- contingent attention should exceed the attention for problem behaviour by at least 4:1

21 Success Summed Up 1.Preparation = Prevention 2.Desired Behaviours must be taught and reinforced. 3.Undesired behaviours must be consistently followed by a reductive consequence
