The fidelity of these classroom systems serve as a predictor of sustainability and student outcomes with the strongest predictors being regular acknowledgement of appropriate student behaviors, matching instruction with student ability and having access to additional support. Learn about a sample observation protocol that was used to provide ongoing monitoring of classroom practices and as a data-decision tool to guide staff coaching.

Title

Utilizing Positive Specific Feedback Across all Three Tiers

Danielle Starkey and Deanna Maynard, Tier 2-3 Consultants, MO SW-PBS

Tiers 1, 2, 3 – Application

Descriptor

Specific positive feedback by teachers is a critical piece of SW-PBS implementation at Tiers 1-3. Effective specific positive feedback consists of: stating the  expectation, specifically describing the behavior and can include a positive consequence. Research recommends a ratio of 4:1; four comments in response to desired student behavior to one response to student misbehavior. Learn how to establish and sustain staff use of specific positive feedback at a ratio of at least 4:1 across Tiers 1-3. Receive a guide with examples of specific positive feedback, frequently asked questions and self-monitoring strategies to increase this practice in
every classroom from the first day of school.

Descriptor

Learn how one school discovered that by placing an intentional, focused effort on students who meet “at-risk” requirements, students who met Tier 2/3 criteria in years past, or students who are beginning to spike, they are frequently successful in thwarting students from reaching Tier 2. This concerted effort was jokingly called Tier 1.5, and the name stuck. Learn about highly effective home visit strategies, PBS 101 for students program and the various ways to engage your entire school community in early behavior prevention efforts, including how to deal with reluctant staff members.
