Behavior Management Project
About Our Student
- 2nd grade male
- Ware Elementary at Fort Riley
- Behavior chart
Increase on-task behavior (i.e. sitting quietly, eyes on speaker, working on assignment) through the use of positive reinforcement (i.e. high five, verbal praise, verbal encouragement).
Why Does This Behavior Happen?
- Antecedent: teacher asking the student that he complete a task
- Student's response: procrastination or do the opposite of what the teacher asked
- Reason for behavior: seeking attention
- Event recording: records the number of times a behavior occurs
- Tallied every time the student responded to being corrected by the teacher or when he responded to positive behavior.
- Time frame: student's math time, 1:00 to 1:40pm
- Findings: first 2 weeks, student responded to being corrected more than positive reinforcement
- Intervention: utilizing behavior chart, increasing positive reinforcement (high fives, verbal praise, encouragement)
- Findings: student was on-task more when we used positive reinforcement
