Case Study: My Experience With Education
Classroom Behavior And How It Can Be Managed
Poor study skills and inappropriate classroom behavior are some of the things you have to deal with when you are a teacher. Going through behavior problems is something that most students go through since its part of growing up. For some, it is more severe than others. Special kids can be separated from the regular ones from their behavior. Lets see how classroom behavior can be maintained.
Come up with behavioral expectations and tell it to them. At the start of every school year tell the students what you expect. Come up with rules, and that will govern the class on the first day of course. Go through the rules together with the students and make it a tradition in the classroom. If someone is doing something wrong come up with sighs that will signal them to stop doing what they are doing. Look closely to see if the laws are being developed.
Keep on checking if anyone has had any adverse reaction and offered them feedback. If you have a student who is continuously having lousy behavior keep a close eye on them and also avoid it at an early stage. If someone has inappropriate practice make sure you respond using gestures and words that are firm so show that they are not following the rules. When the practice is right it will be nice if you reward them.
Reinforcement such us social, exercise, physical, consumable and harmful strengthening should be applied in making sure that the rules are followed. Instead if giving physical reward when someone has good behavior provide those tokens every time they are right. For a later day the tokens can be used as backup reinforcement. A contingency contact can be used in the case of older children. The contract is made by both you and the student stating that they will get a particular reward for good behavior. Behavior can also be taught by shaping, shaping involves taking steps in showing good behavior. Shaping can be used to introduce functional practice or enforce to the one living.
Use a role model to explain the sort of behavior you are expecting. When one of the students does something right use them as an example explaining that’s what you want from the rest. If you are working on a specific student make sure you students their age are around to listen and learn what are your expectations. If you do this it will work even for the students meaning you will have achieved more. The student should be part of the behavior management program by being part of coming up with the goals, making sure they don’t make a mistake on their own and even by evaluating how they have done and how they should be rewarded. Parents should also be part of the behavior management program, so it is useful.
