Transcript of Kounin Model

Sources Jacob S. Kounin Teacher:
Needs to be attentive to all the activities going on in the classroom. Keep the students attention and involved with the lesson. Create activities that should be fun and challenge the student. Expectations Kounin Model Core Principles Good classroom behavior depends on effective lesson management, especially on pacing, transitions, alerting, and individual accountability.
The Ripple Effect
Effective Transitions
Group Focus
Satiation Mayra B., Scott D., Brittany F.,
Ashley G., Rachel M., Colleen M., Chris S. The Ripple Effect:
Occurs when the teacher corrects
misbehavior in one student, and this
positively influences the behavior of other
students nearby. Withitness:
Awareness of what is going on in all
parts of the classroom at all times.
Eyes in the back or your head. Overlapping:
Being able to attend to two or more
issues at the same time.
"MULTITASKING" Effective Transitions:
Keeping lessons moving, avoiding abrupt changes.
Momentum of the lesson Group Focus:
Ability to keep members
of the class or group paying
attention to the task. Satiation:
Being satisfied that the lesson
has been taught properly and the
students reached their potential. Student:
Should be busy and happy which will create a better environment in the classroom. If a student is off task then they should be acknowledged by the teacher in a productive way. Students should be held accountable for their own actions Research Kounin's research and experiments took over five years to complete.
He was studying how teachers manage classroom behaviors but found that no matter what teachers did, the behaviors did not change.
Conclusion: What teachers do to prevent management problems was the key to successful classroom management.
Experiment was comprised of college, high school, middle school, and elementary students.
Kounin was doing research on how teachers handle misbehaviors. While teaching a lesson on Mental Hygiene, he noticed a student reading a newspaper; he tells the student to put the newspaper up and pay attention;
notices other students who were not paying attention focus on him.
His theory is important because without some idea on how to control students in a classroom, there will be chaos.
Teachers today use his theory, its common sense.
His theory to decrease misbehavior in the classroom actually works if implemented successfully. http://www.education.com/reference/article/using-xray-vision-substitute-teacher/
