This is an excerpt from the article Ofsted Re managing challenging behavior
Number 16 in the article “behavior: national image
16.” a survey conducted in 2003 on behalf of the Youth Justice Board showed that young people directly in all contexts showed a slight decline in the last two years. Research conducted by the board gives a good understanding of the factors in the lives of young people who make offending more likely. These factors are:
• aggressive behavior of the young person, including bullying
• family conflict and breakdown
• low achievement, starting at school
• lack of commitment to school, reflected in truancy
• peer involvement in problem behaviors
• availability of drugs
All of the above factors underlying the different behaviors contribute to one common effect; disrupt the learning environment.
“As you begin to change your thinking, start immediately to change your behavior. Start to respond to part of them you want to be. Take action in your behavior. Too many people want to feel, then take action. This never works. “
John Maxwell quotes American writer and motivational speaker
effect of different learning behavior varies. In ESOL my class where students are adults, the impact appears to be minimal. The students are almost independent and feelings of shame and embarrassment seem to be stopped then the question if something is not understood. But for absences and tardiness direct impact for teachers who always need to explain for the benefit of the late comers and those who were absent from previous sessions. Students are affected of the lot of the time is consumed examined in recent lessons.
With a new group of students I have a university from scratch, every behavior issues.
Most students show interest towards the projects given they seem to be short of patience and focus is also fast shrinking. A lot of them need individual support for each project. There are a few guys who talk so loud and even swear and verbal warnings appear to be taken on board but only for a short time. The class is disturbing for each noise and chattering that seem to be infinite. There are few people who are attention seekers and the environment is likely to be chaotic with this type of students. One negative behavior, leading to a chain of more negative behavior that could totally destroy the entire session. One of the projects in my first session in the primary school involved a lot of use of the network. I was looking through some of the students and noticed that they would sometimes navigate to pages with pictures of almost naked women. I gave them a verbal warning to make them aware of the consequences of their actions. The group I was working with were all focused except one, who showed great interest in the beginning of the operation by starting the project immediately, but as we went by his enthusiasm faded as did his partner for the project lost interest as well. In a situation like this, goals, objectives and learning outcomes are at stake.
targeted time to complete the task is always the hardest.
different learning styles for each student and one simple tantrum could interfere with focus or interest in another.
The legislation relevant to control behavior in the learning environment to ensure the right of every child and every teacher as well. Without legislation guidelines for the protection of both parties, better learning environment is at stake.
“negative emphasis in policy behavior leads often focused on dealing with problems after they have occurred.” Managing challenging behaviors pp10.
Structural policy is important to control the behavior of the learning environment.
In Feda publication “Is not behaved” Mitchell et all (1998) suggest that the disruptive behavior to be managed successfully the structural system needs to be present.
Regions suggested in the publication are:
• student discipline
• student attendance
• student lateness
• Use mobile
• Smoking, alcohol, drugs abuse
• bullying and harassment
• Comments related to inequality
Structural orders require key players to promote the “order” environment where students prefer the purchase environment as a basis for creativity and learning.
Structural Policy of controlling behavior in a learning environment different to what extent disruptive behavior affects the teaching / learning. This means that there is no “one size ‘that fits all.” Is not misbehavin “(1998)
One widely held principle of effective punishment is that it should never breed resentment.
This are the leading encourage behaviors that promote effective learning environment.
giving positive feedback is one sure way to increase the interest of the student and trust and this would lead to positive behavior towards studies which suggested petty (2004), a book of his teachings day.
• Medals: This is information about what the student has done well, such as “your paragraphs and punctuation are good” or “There is good evidence ‘written in the margin next to the well-done team for the student . And grade tracking signals are not medals. Medals are details of what was done well.
• Project: This is information about what the student needs to improve, correct, or work on. It is best when it is forward looking and positive. eg “try to give more evidence of your views” or “more paragraphs to show the structure of writing ‘. Again, measurements such as the grades usually do not provide this information.
• Clear objectives: medals and the project has to be associated with clear goals usually best given in advance. the goal could be assessment criteria such as’ Use paragraphing to show the structure of writing “or” give evidence, illustrations for the views you express. “
as the saying goes” give credit where credit is due “students will be inspired to behave well in a learning environment if they are praised and recognized for the quality of their work and in my experience as a teacher, this has worked all the time. the class of Foundation College needs this style to encourage students to do more and I have proved this last Wednesday, March 18, 2009, on my first day, the students showed more interest when I praised the work of art they did as a group and individually praised them as well. This way made them complete all the tasks given.
The unique style of learning should be recognized by teachers to encourage good behavior. Another way is to take a lesson with interesting activities that are common among the general youth today. Giving attention and support when needed is also a tool. One to one tutorial is one good way to get access to the learner in deeper scope to know what his / her needs are.
“I praise the way, I blame softly”
Catherine the Great quotations
Strategies to promote behaviors that interfere with effective learning environment will be used to maximize learning. Using the advantages and medals is the number one on my list to encourage students to do more and better. Disruptive behavior are always present in the environment especially if students have a lot of issues such as learning difficulties, family problems, personality issues, etc. so what methods should be used to encourage them? Make them feel important and give them the responsibility to promote inclusion is one tool to minimize possible unwanted behavior. Establish principles of cause and effect awareness will also make students know their limits and boundaries. A student who is likely to create a disrupting behavior could be grouped into projects with students who are interested in learning to make him / her aware of the good behavior of students always produce excellent results. He or she will be challenged to do better because he would feel the pressure to be better to get the students as he / she is. Knowing what interests the student and expertise is an important factor in making educational programs / projects and use discipline for “every child matters” are good tools to encourage behaviors that interfere with effective learning environment. Reflective practice is also policy to encourage behaviors that interfere with effective learning environment. If you reflect and analyze how and what to do next about something that went wrong; problems will be identified and will be operative. Transactional analysis is also a theory put into practice. Be nurturing parent if you must pacify and to show the power that sometimes needs to signal that it is the boundary between students and teachers.
A desire to be light, thought, respected, praised, beloved and admired by his colleagues is one of the oldest and efficient measures found in the human heart.
ways to control behaviors that interfere with effective learning environment are the tools to pursue to maximize learning. Ways like medals and honors are good grounds to increase student self-esteem and motivation. Consistency of approach is also a good way to show that the teacher is serious about how he / she deals with students when it comes to behavior management. A close cooperation with the parents need to exercise as well to enable all concerned to know what is happening.
ethos school provides a context in which children feel more comfortable knowing that they are valued as individuals, are safe from emotional and physical harm and are able to discuss their interests and open about their fears if the atmosphere does not give them support only but also concern. Appropriate adjustment of the materials is also a way to capture the interest of students. Flexibility is also a must to make sure that every child matters in the learning environment. If the curriculum and level are duly accepted, a sure way to better learning visible.
Using methods to control behaviors that interfere with effective learning environment must always be taken into account. Looking at the strengths of students and areas for development and make them as a starting point for a positive learning environment is helpful to promote inclusion. If the idea of registration is evident in the learning environment, disruptive behavior could be avoided. In a class where all the students with learning difficulties, disruptive behavior as the disinterest and impatience are likely to happen. One strategy that I used on my first day was unnoticed push it promised all student had to maintain their interest and finish what they were doing. I noticed that they have so easily destructed just a simple annoyance as the noise but when I started gentle push through praise, they got back to what they were doing with greater intensity.
Giving emphasis on the importance of literacy and numeracy by giving more tasks to be filled better in these two areas will improve the communication skills of students; a skill that could be the reason why the student becomes disruptive. Do not have the ability to communicate is an obstacle that could stop the student to connect with peers and teachers make him vulnerable victim of abuse from peers and this can lead to behavioral problems. Good quality teaching is the prime ingredient to get interested students. If lessons are given in good time, knowledge, learning sessions are likely to be active and no disruptive behavior. A one to one tutorial should always be offered to students to make them feel their importance in the process. Student with disruptive behavior will take part in group work with students who have better behavior and interests that make him feel responsible and challenge.
own my methods, strengths and development needs associated with managing different behavior in learning environments are somehow a combination of how I was disciplined in school in the Philippines and new techniques learned in DTLLS course. In the Philippines, teachers are highly respected. They are considered one of the parents so they discipline a child with behavioral problems is part of the / job. Physical damage punishment is not legally allowed more physical damage is not the only way to discipline students. There are clearly written orders imposed set of standards to control disturbed behavior. Teachers in the Philippines in my time acted as imposers of things to do in the learning process. The projects are made more to avoid trouble from being picked on by slow learner who was not fully useful because it is a concrete barrier between teachers and students. As a teacher myself now, I would like to participate in the process not as a source of fear and as a source of motivation for the student to participate in any learning process; However, the barrier between teacher and student was imminent in his school days my should just be taken as goals that both teacher and student. If there is a barrier, communication is deterred. A boundary with the interaction between teachers and students is a good tool to coordinate the professionalism of the teacher student relationship within the learning environment. In my peers and teachers notes micro Teach me, they said I showed classroom by placing power and because good content my knowledge. I believe that the excellent content knowledge could make interesting learning environment for students. The first position I have, the ESOL class is an ideal group. All students are adults and there are no behavioral problems going on. Frequent absences and tardiness are only a problem at times because of their individual circumstances. They’re all working students and some have young children that is why sometimes absent could not be avoided.
New type I have a basic college is a challenge for me. I believe that I have to put into practice all the theories as transactional analysis, reflective practice learning styles model Kolb experiential theories to promote a better approach to teaching.
Ways to adapt and improve their own practices associated with managing different behavior in learning environments are as follows:
As suggested in the “Behavior Management, a whole organization approach” by learning and skills Development Agency, Northern Ireland, knowledge of these events is a good suggestion on where to start to control disruptive behavior.
1. Where distortion out?
2. What type of behavior?
3. Who is involved?
4. Why organization experience disruptive behavior?
5. When disturbance place?
These questions help to get to the bottom line of a problem.
LSDA NI has also devised a short staff training in management behavior that I find useful tool to deal with behavioral problems.
resource center for the following system all setup.
They are called “The Four Focus Model.”
1. Recognition of
4. Dealing with
I believe that the measures for the management should start throughout the organization . If there are clear written goals and rules to submit, behavioral management becomes easier. As a teacher, reflective practice is always to be considering to deal with all aspects of the learning process. Reflective practice and action plans; to make all students involved in the whole process. Knowing what your student needs are, communication, workshops, discussion of unique styles and learning needs are tools to make the learning environment a good experience for all students. if the environment is a recognition for the unique strengths, understanding of the regional and development, prevention of challenging behavior and knowledge to deal with all of the above and the whole process, maximized inclusive chaos is likely to be achieved.
