AbstractAs educators it can be difficult managing behaviors that are inappropriate behaviors in and out of our classroom. It can also be hard finding which strategy works best for which class. However, it is our job to create a safe and positive learning environment for each and every one of our students. We need to create a classroom behavior plan and have expectations for our students and they need to understand what is expected of them the first day they walk through that door. As teachers, we need to figure out the best way to help each student succeed. In order to do this, we may need to work together with other colleagues to create a plan for that particular student or students. There are a variety of different behavior plans and interventions that can be used in the classroom but we need to continue to keep it positive when we implement it.

Using Course Assessments to Train Teachers in Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavioral Intervention Plan TechniquesFallon, Moira; Zhang, Jie; Kim, Eun-Joo; The College at Brockport (2011-01-01)As the need to train more teachers to work in inclusive classrooms increases, college instructors should identify and implement course assessments measuring their effectiveness in training practices. Skills in managing the challenging behaviors of students with disabilities, such as autism and emotional disturbances are important for teachers worldwide. The purpose of this paper is to explore the use of a course assessment to develop Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP). The course assessment used in this study was developed, revised, and then implemented to evaluate participants‘ knowledge to identify, assess and develop plans to improve challenging behaviors of students with behavior disabilities. The course assessment was used in training teachers who currently hold general education certification in obtaining special education training. All participants were new teachers, previously certified in childhood education, and seeking additional certification in special education. Results show there were significant differences across the years of implementation of the study. The paper includes recommendations for other institutions of higher education to utilize similar course assessments into their teacher training programs.
The effectiveness of a classroom wide incentive program to eliminate disruptive and negative behavior in the preschool settingTuggle, Amanda (State University of New York College at Fredonia, 2016-05)A classwide behavioral intervention was conducted in Lake Erie preschool to eliminate disruptive and negative behavior in the classroom. As a result of classroom dynamics constantly changing, the most important skill that a teacher must possess is effective classroom management. As a group, students were given an opportunity to earn 6 rewards throughout the day for maintaining positive behavior. Students who displayed disruptive, negative or distracted behaviors at any point during the day were given six opportunities to start over and correct their behaviors. Observational data was collected on the frequency of these behaviors during circle time and seat work time. Two independent observers recorded this data on students' behavior four separate times over a one month period. Anecdotal notes were also recorded to give the researcher insight on student behavior when a color change occurred due to undesired behaviors. In conclusion, it was determined that this intervention was an effective method in reducing disruptive, negative, and distracted behavior in the preschool classroom. [from abstract]
Does the quality of rival song affect the structure of cricket aggressive calls?Ladowski, Alexander (2013-01-11)Male crickets utilize calls prior to aggressive encounters with other males in order to gain a fitness advantage without resulting in costly physical altercation. In our study we looked at whether male house crickets (Acheta domesticus) changed specific call parameters in response to males that were perceived as being strong or weak through synthetic call playback. Our findings lend support to previous studies showing that there is a significant positive linear relationship between pulse duration and male linear size as well as condition. We also show that males do not change their call structures in response to males they perceived as strong or weak, and we offer evidence that male house crickets are actually physically constrained, and thus the signals produced are good indicators of resource holding potential (RHP).
