Challenging Student Behaviors & Theory-based Responses/Strategies
COGNITIVISM/CONSTRUCTIVISM: Apply SEAT; Ask the child to stop and think about what he/she wants or needs; Remind them of previous times; Ask for them to come up with solutions
BEHAVIORISM: Apply SEAT to figure out the trigger; I am going to redirect and offer positive reward for stopping; offer reinforcement related to students around the child
Not wanting to Line Up- Jenni
COGNITIVISM: Approach the student, hold dialogue with the student of their reasonings for not lining up, provide baby steps to get them into the line- remind of rules and procedures (we put our toys away, we get our jacket on, then we line up to go outside)
Talking out of turn (Jenna)
remind class rules and expectations.
Reflect on the behavior. have a one on one conversation later on.
Refusing to participate- Jenni
BEHAVIORISM: Observe child's environment- (SEAT) to understand the students intentions. I will point out positive behavior of fellow students and remind class of reward system associated with positive behaviors.
Getting out of seat (Stephanie)
BEHAVIORISM: Providing reward such as extra recess time (3-5 mins). Reward system or pointing out a positive reforcement
HUMANISM: Allowing students time to develop control over his/her behavior. Build a relationship and have a classroom meeting. Take care of their feelings before they think. Treat the students to regulate the purposes.
HUMANISM: Find out the reasoning of the students stealing- are their needs not being met at home? Apply the Trauma Lens- what needs does this child need to be met?, Build a relationship, talk out the behavior and the why- perhaps include the school counselor, Restoration/Restitution
Bad Words (Stephanie)
COGNITIVISM/CONSTRUCTIVISM: Asking students to reflect on their experience. Helping students to find new solutions to problems. Encouraging discussions about what is being taught. Provide baby steps. Retrace their thoughts & really think about their behavior.

reward positive behavior
provide additional support
Ask the child why is he/she not following directions and help come up with a solution.
demonstrate appropriate behavior
Provide behavior chart
Humanist: provide a calming corner
Ask the child to reflect on his/her behavior.
talk to the student about hitting and bitting and model good behavior. Remind to put his hands to himself.
