Classroom Management (C.M.): 1. Consequences 2. Low Profile CM Card Q: What is one thing you remember from the reading on low-profile classroom management that you would like to use in your own teaching? Mastery 2: Last 15 minutes of class—give 20 minute warning
Announcements Observation Activity #2 due next week: – Must be typed – Download directions and answer sheet from my website – Use 6.2 and 6.5 to complete the activity and clip them to the answer sheet—bring all to class as hard copies next week – Use any video on the table you want—it is OK to watch the same one twice
REMEMBER THE A, B, C’S Low profile classroom management occurs when teachers use the A/B/C’s the right way...
Antecedents Classroom Physical Arrangement Rules Procedures/Routines Instructional Routines Behavioral Routines Remember the A, B, C’s: Antecedents so far
Consequences Incentives Consequences Ignore 3 general types of consequences :
CONSEQUENCES: STRENGTHEN OR WEAKEN BEHAVIORS Strengthen if a positive consequence: Praise, stickers, smiles, free time Weaken if not positive: ignore, harsh words, extra work assigned, loss of privileges ESTABLISHIHG ROUTINES FOR USE OF CONSEQUENCES IS IMPORTANT
Most Important Thing Use positive consequences instead of negative ones if at all possible: – Catch students doing the right thing and point it out – Ignore minor infractions if not disruptive – 10 to 1 rule – Chart 6.5, p. 229—how does this teacher use oral incentives?
When you MUST use negative consequences... Do the most mild thing first—praise rather than “things”; reminders rather than harsher punishment https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/ge tting-students-back-on-track?fd=1 https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/ge tting-students-back-on-track?fd=1 Explain and discuss the problem rather than punish Chart 6.5, p. 229—how does this teacher use oral incentives?
