Top Ten Classroom Management Techniques from America's Crazy Teachers (Jimmy Fallon)

Top Ten Classroom Management Techniques from America's Crazy Teachers (Jimmy Fallon) | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

Television talk show host Jimmy Fallon has a regular feature called "hashtags," in which he comes up with a Twitter topic, then invites the universe to contribute. Last week's topic was "my crazy teacher." If you follow this link, you'll be able to see the ones he chose to highlight on the air.

 

Naturally, most of them were sent in by students and are meant to poke fun at their crazy teachers. But amidst the thousands of tweets were quite a few inventive classroom management techniques that are worth applauding. Here are ten, in no particular order (spelling corrected and punctuation added):

Using Timeout In The Classroom

Using Timeout In The Classroom | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

The article discusses the how(s) and why(s) of timeout.  I would clarify a bit more, indicating that timeout is "time AWAY from THAT which is reinforcing:  to be part of the group, you must check yourself.  You cannot participate if you are out of bounds.  We will try it again and I am sure you will get it right this time".  It is not a punishment..........but instead an opportunity to teach and practice.  Ideally, it happens in a place that is nearby where they can view the activities without participating The key is:  they must WANT to participate. The activities must be enticing.   If the child is trying to escape an undesired activity, timeout will NOT work!  Then it is time to look more closely at the REAL problem.

Behavior Plans: Another Type of Teaching Plan

Behavior Plans: Another Type of Teaching Plan | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

The perspective should be that a behavior plan is another teaching plan intended to address and accommodate a student's underdeveloped skills -- very similar to lesson plans for students with reading disabilities. Instead of asking, "What do I do when he yells?," a more accurate question would be, "How do I teach him not to yell?"

Treasured Tip - CHAMPS Classroom Organizaion, Discipline, Management

Treasured Tip - CHAMPS Classroom Organizaion, Discipline, Management | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it

A 4th grade teacher's blog regarding her experience with CHAMPS for classroom management, discipline and organization.  CHAMPS is by Randy Sprick's Safe and Civil Schools.  It incorporates best practices in a framework that guides while allowing teachers to individualize to their classroom.  Teachers leave with a succinct classroom management plan .

JennaMRyan's curator insight, December 13, 2013 4:39 PM

This Teacher's Treasure blog was posted October 30, 2011.  It features a book called CHAMPS Classroom Management.  CHAMPS stands for Conversation, Help, Activity Movement, Participation, and Success.  The book also features the acronym SLANT which stands for Sit Up, Learn forward, Activate your thinking, Note important information, and Track the talker (or the Teacher).   The article asks teaches to teach their expectations regarding how to be successful within the structure that they have created.  Correcting misbehavior fluently is another main point in the article.  The blogger also concluded it seemed high maintenance and tough to keep up with on a daily basis.

 

According to the suggestions in this blog, good teachers are involved.  This is consistent with the discipline policies outlined in my other posts.  Although the book outlines this in more detail, teachers can develop an effective classroom plan that is proactive, positive, and instructional.  I like the concept of CHAMPS because it seems to me like they are all very obvious components of good classroom management, but when you speak them and have the kids speak them, they take ownership over them and it becomes a concrete expectation, in my opinion.  I think the strategies outlined in this book, especially SLANT will give a classroom the edge over others because these principles really encourage actively engaging the students; minds and bodies.  I am not totally sold on it because it does seem like a lot to keep up with, but I can see introducing it around December into the classroom once it starts getting excited about Christmas time coming up and seeing if the strategies are effective for classroom management.

I love this video!  Perfect for MS (and HS) implementing a multi-tiered system of support and looking for interventions for some of the more reluctant learners facing difficult issues.  The early warning system is one that can be used in a MTSS framework to catch kids at risk for dropping out early.  Interventions can then be created.  For more information, see:  http://www.betterhighschools.org/ews.asp. ; We will be using this segment in our PL this fall.
