Positive and Proactive Classroom Practices for Middle Schools and High Schools
Diane Myers, Associate Professor of Special Education, Texas Woman’s University
Tier 1 – Application
Discover how this school taught staff to view social/ behavioral errors as opportunities to re-teach the desirable behaviors, and how they led staff to determine what behaviors they manage and what behaviors are office-managed. Learn strategies to discourage minor inappropriate behavior and promote learning of appropriate replacement behaviors, and how staff use respectful responses that reduce the probability of escalating behavior.
Increasing the Use and Equitable Implementation of Effective Classroom Practices
Ambra L. Green, Assistant Professor of Special Education, University of Texas at Arlington
Tier 1 – Enrichment
This session will discuss effective classroom practices proven to reduce challenging behavior and will describe how teachers can increase their usage rates of these practices. These practices should be used classroomwide, intensified to support small-group instruction or amplified further for individual students. Using effective classroom practices can help teachers capitalize on instructional time and decrease disruptions, which is crucial as schools are being held to greater academic- and social-accountability measures.
