6 years School Climate Specialist at Johns Hopkins University Partnership with MSDE and Sheppard Pratt PBIS Implementation throughout MD Other various EBP interventions throughout MD National PAX GBG Trainer (Classroom management) 10 years as a classroom teacher in Baltimore City Classroom/Behavior Management Coach in Baltimore City My Family Goals for the workshop Understand the philosophy of the PBIS system and the PAX Good Behavior Game Learn how PBIS and PAX are implemented in schools Collect and implement

strategies on how to use PBIS in the home and community I Believe I believe that parents are the childs first and most important teacher. I believe that the schools cannot do it alone. I believe that we must work as a team. What is PBIS? Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework for a school that supports a positive school climate and positive behavior in school. Implemented in 109

MCPS Schools What is PBIS ? PBIS is a pro-active reinforcement based system rather than a reactive consequence based system. The focus is teaching behaviors that lead to academic success. Praise is a powerful strategy that supports generalization Praise is vital for effective PBIS implementation. Proactive towards student success! PBIS works on creating a proactive approach teaching students the expectations through: Modeling expected behavior Matrixes

Direct Social Skills Instruction Teachable Moments Can we MAKE students behave? We cant make kids learn or behave, but we have the power to increase the likelihood by creating a positive environment and teaching. In other words, PBIS aims to improve school climate. The Basics Behavior is learned Do not assume children know your rules, expectations, or social skills Every social interaction you have with a child teaches him/her something The Basics

Behavior communicates need: Children engage in behavior(s) to "get" what they find reinforcing or to "avoid" what they find aversive Behavior = Communication Every behavior has a function: Escape Attention Tangible Desires (food, item, activity) Control We have the Power Our reaction to a particular situation can escalate or de-escalate behavior Control Environmental Factors Control Task Presentation Eliminate Emotional Cues Avoid a Spiral of Conflict

If a child doesnt know how to read, we teach. If a child doesnt know how to swim, we teach. If a child doesnt know how to multiply, we teach. If a child doesnt know how to drive, we teach. If a child doesnt know how to behave, we... teach? punish? Why cant we finish the last sentence as automatically as we do the others? The bottom line: Teaching Teach Expectations Teach Routines and Procedures

PBIS Matrix at School Provide initial lesson plans and/or lesson plan format to teach specific behaviors identified on the Matrix CAFETERIA Be on time Keep my area clean Dress appropriately

Keep my place in line Use good manners Dispose of food in the proper manner Use good manners Use appropriate voice level Listen to announcements Be prepared to leave on Why Develop a System for Teaching Behavior? Behaviors are prerequisites for academics. Procedures and routines create structure. Repetition is key to learning new skills.

For a child to learn something new, it needs to be repeated on average of ?8 Times (Joyce and Showers, 2006) Adults average ? 25 (Joyce and Showers, 2006) For a child to unlearn an old behavior and replace with a new behavior, the new behavior must be repeated on average ? 28 times (Harry Wong) Biggest misconception of PBIS is the recognition system

Difference between bribery and recognition Tickets are not designed to change student behavior Tickets are designed to change adult behavior Ticket designed to prompt conversation (relationship building) Conversation/relationship changes the behavior What matters is the positive social engagement (know your students) Not used as general praise PBIS at Home Helps to build a school and home connection Teaching and re-teaching behavioral expectations Positive acknowledgment

Improved behavioral outcomes The importance of the home, school, community connection PBIS can be implemented in the home and community settings. By connecting PBIS at home and school your child gets: Consistency Common language Additional applications of important social/behavioral skills PBIS at Home Breakdown To implement PBIS in the home and community,

follow these four steps: 1. Set expectations in advance 2.Communicate/teach the expectations 3.Positively reinforce when expectations are met 4. Have a plan to give additional support when expectations are not met Set Your Expectations in Advance Simply put, ask yourself, what is it I want my child to be able to do during dinner or at the movie theatre? Knowing your child, set your expectations in a way that is visible and

other people could understand if they read it A home/community matrix is a tool to use when completing this step Communicate/Teach the Expectations Just like any other skill, we must teach our expectations to our children The most effective and usually easiest way to teach expectations is through modeling them ourselves Some other methods to use are:

Social stories or books You Tube or other videos Siblings/other children modeling Use the additional community resources for help with this step Positive Reinforcement when Expectations are Met We want to hear when we did a good job and so do our children Two big areas to plan and practice are: What reinforcers should you use How often should you

reinforce (frequency) Selecting a Reinforcer Using a reinforcement inventory is one way to identify reinforcers for your child It is important to identify both small and large reinforcers for your child Example of small: token board Example of large: TV time Frequency of Reinforcement This is the trickiest part of the whole process Through knowing your child and

some trial and error a plan will be created on how often a child needs to be positively reinforced The goal is for independence so the less you can reinforce the better Usually when starting the process you will need to reinforce often and in time can lessen the amount The home/community PBIS chart is a way to give reinforcement Additional Support What is the plan if the expectations are not met? Re-teach the expectation Give additional prompting or support for success

Time for consequences for their actions Not receiving the reinforcer until expectations are met PBIS is not 100% effective It would be great if it was but the PBIS system data shows it is effective about 80-85% of the time The school PBIS team is looking to work together with you in learning from each other in specific workshops designed address specific behavior topics such as:

Easiest behavior management tool Ive ever used in my classroom. Impulsive Behavior/Self-Regulation

The ability to self-regulate (self-control) is a more accurate predictor to future academic success than a reading level The PAX Good Behavior Game is a classroom strategy that helps kids learn how to selfregulate while they are participating in their daily lessons How does PAX create self-regulation? Daily group intrinsic, activity rewards for prosocial behavior Written Tootles from peers & adults 75% to 85% reduction in disturbing, disruptive, aggressive peer behaviors every

day. Low rates of negative peer reinforcement. Lower rates exposure to exclusion & tattling Lower exposure to bullying & trauma Lower exposure to harsh adult actions Increased ability to change the social environment More ability to treat upsets lightly How Do Teachers Create These?

University Beliefs and Facts Parent values are instilled in our youth tell your children everyday to say I can do anything! 7,200 students dropout daily in the US A 4 year college graduate makes 1 million dollars more in their lifetime than a high school graduate. Teach your child to develop goals Children laugh 400 times a day Adults laugh 15 times per day Some things we know but often forget: Our role is to teach, not criticize. They are our children, put them first.

Mood affects learning, keep it positive. The power of praise can affect our childrens futures. Make a difference in the life of our children by teaching them to look for the good in all. Praise (specifically) often and build a positive future for our children. A Final Thought People often say that motivation doesnt last. Well, neither does bathing. Thats why we recommend it daily.
