Transcript of Think Time...

J. Ron Nelson's
Behavioral Approach Model

Think Time...
Concept of Think Time...
With Nelson's Model, we are steering away from checkmarks and repeated warnings

Students are to know that there is a consequence for disruptive behavior, for which feedback will be given and they have an opportunity to think about future actions.
Application of Nelson's Model
A teacher must first provide students with rules and routines, as well as examples of appropriate and inappropriate behaviors.
results from disruptive behavior... in which a student is asked to leave the classroom to reflect on his or her actions.
(1) Teacher begins with one request

(2) If student doesn't correct his or her disruption they are told to head over to the "Think Time" destination

What happens during Think Time??
Two main rules:
(1) Student must remain silent
(2) Only speak and respond to an adult
No time limit...
After given time the student should be able to reflect and regain control of his or her self.

When questioned about the disruptive behavior, the student should be able to describe it objectively.

If a student response is acceptable they can return to their classroom...

If the student is unable to respond, the student remains in Think Time.
If Matters Get Worse...
The second time a student is approached they are not questioned verbally... instead given a form to fill out....
Behavior Debriefing Form:
What was your misbehavior?_____________________________________
What was your reasoning to act that way? ( ) gain attention ; ( ) avoid schoolwork
( ) get even with someone ; ( ) other: _____________________________________
Did you get what you wanted by misbehaving? _____________________________________
What are you going to change when you return to the classroom? _______________________________
Then original classroom teacher reviews form and allows the student to return in his or her classroom
A cooperating teacher must be in plan so that when a child misbehaves and is sent to "Think Time"... they are sent out of the location of disruption and into a "Think Time" location.
Continuous Misbehavior...
Student is then sent to the office for "Administrative Think Time"
Nelson calls it... Early Intervention
