“For Adults Only: Team Building with Reminders & Reinforcers” is a simple way for teams to learn positive student support strategies in a non-threatening manner while reinforcing the use of the skills in ‘real time’. The adult interventions can make teams more consistent with their skills and consequently increase their students’ positive behaviors and independence. Teams learn the skills and utilize a checklist to self-assess and prioritize their needs. A visual display is used to remind the teams of the skill(s) they will work on for the week. Teams provide each other with social and tangible reinforcement.
I have a great team in my classroom but sometimes we are not all on the same page when it comes to providing preventative or consequential interventions with our students. One person might talk too much to a student, giving attention to behaviors of concern and inadvertently increasing the behavior while another person may not do enough. Sometimes even the basics of student interactions are just not there. What can I do to make us a more cohesive team with providing our interventions?
