HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Classroom Management What does it look like? Expectations (I-9)
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Expectations for Behavior All Expectations Must: Be clearly defined and posted Be monitored constantly and consistently Have consequences when not followed Rules: Should address 3 – 6 of the most frequently occurring and/or the most unacceptable behavior Must be specific and observable Activity/Transition Procedures: Must be taught, modeled, and practiced until they are performed automatically Must, must, must include an attention signal

HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Assertive Approach to Intervention Be sure your message is clear Use proximity Stay calm and lower your voice Keep the focus of your message on the behavior Be direct and specific Be firm and matter of fact Specify any consequences Follow through with accountability Be consistent Be fair
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Effective Intervention Practice Form groups of three and assign roles: - Student - Teacher - Observer Student chooses a scenario from the stack of five and reads it aloud Teacher role-plays a response directed to student Observer gives positive feedback to teacher Teacher incorporates feedback from observer and responds to the same scenario Teacher asks observer for specific advice and gives a polished response to the scenario Repeat the above activity 2 more times until each participant has played all 3 roles
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Building Rapport with Students Why is this so important? Relationships (I-10)
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Building Rapport The single most important thing teachers can do to improve the overall behavior of students in their classroom and to increase their chances of academic success is to....increase the number of positive interactions they have with each student.
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Ratio Formula + - 3 1 An effort should be made to interact with each student 3 times more in response to positive behavior than in response to negative behavior.
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Positive Academic Attention Purpose: To increase a student’s motivation and improve academic performance To give specific and useful information about academic work Examples: Giving Positive Feedback -A subtle nod or smile of approval -A brief (less than 15 seconds) words of praise in private
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Positive Nonacademic Attention Purpose Increase ratio of positive interactions to corrections that is not dependent on academic performance Examples Attending an extracurricular activity such as athletic events, concerts, and plays in which students are participating Standing at the door greeting students respectfully and graciously
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Essential Classroom Management Skills Focus more time, attention, and energy on acknowledging responsible behavior than on responding to misbehavior. Preplan responses to misbehavior to ensure that responses are in a brief, calm, immediate, and consistent manner.
HISD Becoming #GreatAllOver Important Considerations Don’t take misbehavior personally, even if remarks are directed to you. Just as you have to learn how to intervene effectively to misbehavior, your students have to learn how to change their behavior. Be patient. Everyone is on a learning curve. Approach every intervention with intentions to deescalate the situation and minimize the disruptive effects on the rest of the class.
