This course describes how behavior is a form of communication among students (and adults as well). Participants will learn to focus on form vs. function of behavior, and then address the varieties of functions of behavior and how a teacher can implement consequences (positive and negative) to help shape the behavior in a successful way. 

Case studies and strategies to match the function of behavior will be reviewed during this course. Participants will find references to additional materials and scientific journals that will supplement their existing knowledge. Students will appreciate ideas/strategies that they can take away and immediately implement in all educational settings. Collaboration with other educators around the state will validate the focus of behavior interventions.

Having opportunities to collaborate with other educators from all over will provide valuable “outside of the box” thinking that will enable educators to create positive behavior plans to assist students in the class setting.

STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Explain the difference between form of a behavior and function of a behavior
  • Demonstrate an ability to make a hypothesis regarding the function of a behavior for an individual student.
  • Compare and contrast different functions of behavior that a form of behavior can communicate
  • Reflect on classroom management strategies, tier 1, 2, and 3 level responses to the observed form of behavior.

    This course was self-paced and helped me put a name to many things I see in the classroom. I now have a larger set of tools to help me better understand my students and their behavior and actions.
