Transcript of Tools for Teaching Fred Jones

Tools for Teaching
by: Christina Aguayo, Yolanda Larios, Sheri Dyer, and Gina Hallwachs
Fundamental Hypothesis of Jones’s Approach
Classroom Structure to Discourage Misbehavior
"Larry is the student you have been hearing horror stories about for two years. You prayed he would be home schooled."
Reinforcement Errors and "Brat" Behavior
reinforcement error
is a specific error in management that causes the problem to go away in the short-term but guarantees that it will get worse in the long-term.

Most discipline problems can be prevented by maintaining active student involvement in lessons. This can be done by providing for:
• An effective seating arrangement
• The reduction of chronic help seeking by students
• A highly interactive style of teaching
• Constant monitoring and adjusting of student performance
• Incentives for correct work completion

•Teacher’s who are effective put students to work from the beginning.
•Present information and then quickly have students do something with it.

Using Say, See, Do Teaching
The End!
•Room arrangement
•Teachers must work the crowd
•Jones suggests the interior loop
•Classroom Chores
•Opening routines
A hard Look at reality
Typical classrooms

Nag, Nag, Nag
Goofing off
"Teacher active, student passive"
Helpless handraisers
20% squandered time
What are we going to do about it?
Stage 1: As green as grass
Stage 2: Do Something!
Stage 3: Sick and Tired
Stage 4: Laying down the law
Stage 5: Give up
"when you send a kid to the office, you publicize the fact that you can't handle the situation"

Staying Calm: Our Emotions
The Figth-Flight Reflex
The fight-flight reflex is our natural response to anything we dislike or do not expect.
"Calm is strength. Upset is a weakness"
Calm is a skill
It's a Matter of breathing
Calm can Be Learned
Emotions Are contagious
Being Consistent: Our Thoughts
Rules To Live By
Rule#1-No means no.
Rule#2-I am not going to stand here and listen to your yammering.
Discipline Before Instruction
* See and Then Act
* Classroom Rules
* Firmness and Nurturance
Setting Limits: Our Actions
There are lots of ways to deal
with classroom disruptions, but the best way must be cheap!
* Takes the least planning
* Takes the least effort
* Required the least paperwork
* Allows lowest stress level
* You need a classroom management system, so you always know what todo next!
Following Through
If the students intend to continue talking, their language will usually give it away.
If the student are focused on the assignment, their body language will telegraph that too.
Eliminating Backtalk
It takes one fool to backtalk
It takes two fools to make a conversation out of it.
Dealing with the Unexpected
What Do I Do when....
In any surprise situation, the answer is always the same:
Slow down, take two relaxing breaths and remember:
When in doubt, do nothing.
Understanding Brat Behavior
Schools produce the same number of office referrals year after year. What payoff does Larry get for being suspended? Why doesn’t the School Discipline Code “put the lid on” as we would hope?

Learning to Mean Business
Meaning Business can be taught! It is not something you are born with! It is just skill building.
Raising Expectations by Creating Motivation
Answer the question "Why should I?"
The answer to this question is called an incentive!
Informal and Formal Incentives
Informal: creating a behavior without reward.

Formal: creates a behavior through using a reward.
Insentives in the classoom:
Doing it right
The traditional approach may backfire
Make adjustments depending on the student
Building Classroom Structure
Need to set guidelines from the first moment!
