Why Focus on Response Strategies & Error Correction? Clearly stating expectations and consistently enforcing them lends credibility to a teacher’s authority (Good & Brophy, 2000) When teachers are inconsistent in their enforcement of expectations, students become uncertain of what those expectations are and that the expectations apply to them (Evertson, Emmer & Worsham, 2003)
Teachers should focus on increasing positive behavior and interactions by consistently enforcing expectations (Shores, Gunter & Jack, 1993) Teachers who respond consistently feel positive about their teaching and help students improve their performance (Freiberg, Stein & Huan, 1995) Why Focus on Response Strategies & Error Correction?
Consider this… “The single most commonly used but least effective method for addressing undesirable behavior is to verbally scold and berate a student” (Albetro & Troutman, 2006). Why Focus on Response Strategies & Error Correction?
Remember, the P is for Positive... Watching for students to do something wrong Response Cost Time Out Watching for students to do something right Social Reinforcer Tangible Reinforcer Praise
Error Correction Non-Examples… How many times do I have to tell you to work quietly? Didn’t I just tell you to get your work done? Why are you talking when I’m talking? Do you want me to send you to the office? What’s going to happen if I call your mother? What do you think you’re doing? Don’t you think you should be using your time better?
Response Strategies & Error Correction Classroom Continuum of Response Strategies... 1. Prompt = visual or verbal cue 2. Redirect = restate matrix behavior 3. Re-teach = tell, show, practice, acknowledge 4. Provide Choice = range of alternates 5. Conference with Student
Conference Procedures: 1) Positive, private, using quiet voice 2) Describe the problem 3) Describe the alternative (what the student should do instead) 4) Tell why alternative is better 5) Practice (student should tell and/or show) 6) Provide feedback Response Strategies & Error Correction
Climate Killers Sharp or excessive criticism Sarcasm or humor at students’ expense Reinforcers that are not meaningful to students Lecturing students about behavior Being inconsistent in behavior indicator enforcement and reinforcement Having no social interaction with students Showing little interest in students’ lives Teaching lessons with no attention to student affect or stress levels during instruction Warning an angry student to “calm down” without providing supports to achieve that goal.
Climate Enhancers Always model respectful and polite behavior Praise genuinely and frequently Set high, but reasonable and attainable expectations Know your students Spend time interacting with students Use effective listening skills Design classroom to be appealing to students Celebrate student success and achievement Use humor
