One of the features of a successful implementation of Direct Instruction (DI) is a common, clear set of routines, procedures, and expectations for student behaviors. This includes passing in halls, transitions within the classroom, work-check procedures, and other expectations that make classrooms (and, therefore, a school) run smoothly and consistently. This one-day training will provide a framework for the development of these procedures and information on how to teach these procedures systematically to students. Monitoring student compliance and motivating students to cooperate will also
be addressed.

  1. The session addresses the following proactive behavior management practices:
  2. Organizing the physical arrangement of classrooms. 
  3. Establishing 3 to 5 positive expectations/rules.
  4. Maximizing structure and predictability through routines and procedures.
  5. Using multiple strategies/systems to acknowledge and strengthen appropriate behavior.
  6. Active supervision.
  7. Planned, effective responses to misbehavior.

Through extensive hands-on activities, participants gain sufficient information and practice with the strategies during the session, which provides them with a strong foundation for implementing the strategies effectively in their classrooms after attending the session. Each participant develops their own behavior management “prevention plan” for their classroom during the session. Coaches who attend the session are provided with a follow-up form specific to the training – a specialized observational tool that allows them to provide targeted support to participants after they complete the training.
