Responding to Misbehavior

7a40072d-0ec3-4e21-97ba-2008543a5820There are three PD experiences that have shaped the way I teach more than any others:

  1. Reading Recovery Training
  2. Responsive Classroom Training
  3. Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Institutes

Today’s jot inspiration comes from this month’s Responsive Classroom newsletter and deals with reasons for misbehavior.  If you can identify the student’s behavior goal you are more apt to respond appropriately.  I love this quick chart that helps me remember the 4 goals behind misbehavior!  I hope it can help you as well.
