Encouraging and Acknowledging Desired Behavior
Encouraging expected behavior is crucial to help students learn the desired expectations and shift the focus from addressing misbehavior to responding with specific positive feedback for expected social behavior. Teacher and staff attention have a powerful influence on the behavior of individuals and groups of students. Adult attention (contingent and non-contingent) helps create a positive and safe learning environment, build rapport and relationships, and help students learn social behavioral expectations.
Read through the Positive Behavior and Tangible Reinforcers sections of the 'Encouraging Expected Behavior' PDF linked in the Resources section. Additionally, read through the 'Providing Acknowledgement' page linked in the Resources section.
Provide a 2-3 sentence response to one of the questions below:
- How does feedback influence future occurrences of a behavior?
- What types of feedback do you provide to students on academic work? How does this compare to the types of feedback you provide to students on behavioral expectations?
- In what way are your students extrinsically motivated?
- How extensively is positive feedback used in your school?
- Why should you consider developing and using tangible reinforcers in your school?
