A behavioral management style that focuses on good behavior instead of the bad

Based on respect for a student's individuality

In order for PBIS to be successful in a school, as least 80% of the staff has to value and commit to using it.-Decisions have to be backed up with evidence based practice.-Expectations and rules must be explicitly taught.-The consequences used on students must be proven effective.-There must be a reward system in place for positive behavior.

Tips for classroommanagement-do not raise your voice-do not get angry or take things personally-redirect a student-ignore some behaviors at times-instead of correcting verbally, make eye contact or use gestures-never try to belittle or humiliate a student

Be Positive!And create an environment of trust and respect

Things to remember-be aware of biases-avoid escalating situations-LISTEN-engage with the community-be clear and consistent with expectations and rules

Positive BehavioralInterventions &Supports

Advice -Plan ahead and break lessons up into small components-Engage students with games and competitions

Tier 3Intensive, Individualized Interventions-students with chronic/intense problem behavior

Tier 2First-Line Interventions-specialized group interventions

Tier 1Preventative Classroom Management-universal, school wide




I like how PBIS looks at the context of a behavior as a way of addressing how to change it. I also appreciate the focus on celebrating a student's successes instead of reinforcing negative behaviors. Implementation seems like the most difficult hurdle - getting teachers and staff to sign on and work together on a school wide plan and making sure there is consistency in responses.
