End of meeting a plan is in place that is agreed upon by all involved (contract) What Teachers Should Do (cont.) Suggest Suitable Alternative to behavior:
if a misbehaving student has trouble thinking of a more appropriate behavior to engage in, the teacher should suggest alternate behaviors for them to choose.

Invoke reasonable consequences:
use a desirable consequence if student chooses a good behavior and use an undesirable consequence if student chooses a poor behavior

Be Persistent:
to implant the commitment to choose good behaviors in the minds of students, teachers must be consistent.

We have control over acting and thinking

We do not have as much control over feeling and physiology

The choices we make in our thinking and acting affect our feeling and physiology. The Basics Behavior is essential to a person’s existence and happiness
Behavior is chosen
The only person whose behavior we can control is our own
We are driven by our genes to satisfy five basic needs:
love and belonging
fun Stress Student Responsibility:
students must live with the choices they make and the responsibility for their own behavior must be kept in the forefront

Establish rules that lead to success.
Rules should be:
established by teachers and students together
adopted to age
ability and
other realities of the student

Must reinforce the basic idea:
that students are in school to study and learn

Accept NO Excuses:

Call for Value Judgment:
if a student exhibits inappropriate behavior, teachers should have them judge the value of behavior. Press Play
