Behavioral Strategies That YOU Can Implement in 2022
In our frequent conversations with teachers and educational leaders from across the country, nearly all of them site student behavior issues as one of the biggest obstacles to doing their job effectively.
Behavior issues of a few students doesn’t just affect those students individually, either. Obviously, if teachers spend more time correcting behavior issues than covering their curriculum, it becomes almost impossible to reach not only the disruptive students, but the other students in the classroom as well.
Students don’t just learn and absorb information differently; they respond to behavior interventions differently too. That’s why it is so important to have a diverse ‘tool box’ of behavior intervention strategies, that can help teachers address behavior issues in ways that will have the best chance of success with a wide range of students.
This is not just for teachers that are new to the industry either. Teachers that have employed strategies that have been effective for years still need to be prepared to try new and different strategies, so they are equipped to deal with all of their students.
Our colleague, Jon Konen has written an excellent article that will help teachers and educational leaders expand their tool boxes with 5 Behavioral Strategies That You Can Try Out in 2022 and beyond.
In his article, Jon will cover the 85-10-5 triangle, that outlines which students will fall under Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Behavior Intervention Strategies, and the 5 methods that can be used to deal with all students, but most importantly those students who require Tier 2 and Tier 3 Behavior Interventions. These include:
- Brain Fuzz – Changing a student’s thought process
- Check-In and Check-Out – Asking students to check in and out at the beginning and end of each lesson to manage teacher expectations
- High-Trust Language Techniques – A powerful philosophy that can build a foundation for strong relationships
- Love and Logic SEL Banking Account – A philosophy built around research-drive practices
- Restorative Practices – Making sure relationships are sustained, fixed, and in-tact.
