PBIS Recharged!

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Has implementation of your three-tiered supports in your school fizzled?  When asked if you are implementing School-Wide PBIS, do the words :  "Kinda, Sorta" enter your mind?  

 

Let us help you analyze what IS and what IS NOT working well in your school.  PBIS Recharged is a one day learning event designed to help individual schools determine their building's strengths and weaknesses so that they can patch the holes and begin implementing three tiers of supports for all students.  Emphasis will be on the base:  School-Wide Positibe Behavior Interventions and Support.

Engagement and Compliance in the Classroom. They Aren't the Same! | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it
I've come to understand that the term "engagement" needs to be unpacked before addressing issues of management in the classroom. If you ask an educator, "What does engagement look like?" responses will surely vary.

No they are not the same. One is busy work and the other is real, often deep learning.

Andrea Cruz's curator insight, May 1, 2013 8:40 PM

I agree that engagement is key to classroom management. I also recommend Daniel Pink's book titled Drive. It is an excellent read!

Learning Event: Classroom PBIS for Elementary/MS or HS

Learning Event:  Classroom PBIS for Elementary/MS or HS | Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports:  Oakland County | Scoop.it
Shared with Dropbox
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Oakland Schools in Oakland County, MI is offering support for general and special education teachers who would like to bring PBIS philosophy to their classrooms.  The framework is one used by Randy Sprick's Safe and Civil School (http://www.safeandcivilschools.com/products/scs_overview.php). 

 

This two day event will be tailored to  the group after a needs assessment is given prior to the day.  Each participant will be creating an individualized,  comprehensive written plan for the organization and management of materials and activities in the classroom.  Topics to explore include: organizing materials and space;  teaching expectations around movement, noise, asking for help, and engagement; early stage interactions to build relationships; how to engage reluctant learners;  and personal goals for those most difficult to engage.  

 

Teachers who have attended in the past indicate that the experience taught them that they can improve in key areas to create a more consistent and predictable environment for students to learn.  The textbook given becomes a valuable resource for the future:  We have facilitated the learning of hundreds of educators, including entire buildings and departments.  The last group of district special education teachers were thrilled with the outcomes.  

 

Elementary and Middle School teachers attend June 25 and June 26, 2013; HS teachers attend June 26 and 27, 2013.   Regisration links can be found here:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/syl6tirpovnxk4g/CHAMPs-DSC%20Flyer%20June%202013.docx
