Transcript of MAE 5060: Task 4a

Techniques that Build Trust and Character Positive Framing People respond more favorably when positives are presented rather than negatives. Using Positive Framing in a classroom setting means that interventions are made in a positive, constructive manner to correct student behavior. "Teacher language--what we say and how we say it--is one of our most powerful teaching tools" (Denton, 2008). Precise Praise Praising is a very important aspect of teaching. Whether a teacher is validating performance, behavior, or both, praise must be implemented correctly. This is where Precise Praise comes into play. Praise should be genuine, meaningful, specific, and, sometime, spontaneous to be an effective means of positive reinforcement (Brophy, 1981). The J-Factor Finding the JOY in teaching and in seeing students learn is a key factor in effective classrooms. According to Patty Phelps, in her short book, Journey of Joy, she learned to view the joy of teaching as this: "Examining how I can serve others and invest myself in the most meaningful aspects of the profession. Building relationships is critical to finding joy in teaching" (Phelps, 2012, p.4). "Zach, this is the third day in a row you have not turned in your homework. Do you realize you could fail this class if this continues?" Imagine you are an eighth-grade student. How would it make you feel if your teacher said this to you? Would it not be much more motivating if that same teacher framed her words positively? "Zach, you are capable of doing great work and doing well in this class. Let's figure out why you are not getting your work in on time." One category of J-Factor is establishing a feel of "us." The first year that I taught my class named themselves "The Wolfe Pack." (My maiden name is Wolfe.) I think it gave them each a sense of belonging to the group. This is a picture a scrapbook that they put together for me at the end of the year. Each child has his/her own page, complete with name, what s/he remembered most about the year, and a picture. Check out this short YouTube video posted by Uncommon Schools. A 5th grade teacher is shown in his classroom, and a narrator audibly differentiates between praise and acknowledgment.
