Do pesky, repetitive, low-level disruptive behaviors cause you to sometimes feel like a firefighter instead of a classroom teacher… Always putting out fires! Issuing repeated warnings and multiple requests throughout the day can make you feel like you are putting out fires all day long. It depletes your energy as a teacher, but more importantly, it steals away valuable time from teaching and learning.  In your classroom, timing is everything and early intervention is critical.

 Our seminar teaches an amazingly effective strategy that relies on the contingent withdrawal of attention from a student exhibiting emergent (low level) misbehavior.   This unique approach instructs teachers in how to appropriately stop the student, re-teach, check for understanding, and send the student back to work independently.  Students are given a prompt, allowed to self-correct, and then asked to identify the interfering behavior –  all while never leaving an academic environment.  It is a POWERFUL response to shutting down problem behavior because it refines and adapts a century old strategy to have a dramatic impact on the contemporary classroom.
