POWER OF RTI, THE: CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

By Jim Wright

Response to Intervention is an effective method for helping struggling learners achieve academic success. The good news is that RTI can also be a powerful management approach to challenging behaviors in the classroom.

Jim Wright, widely renowned authority on RTI and author of the national best seller, RTI Toolkit: A Practical Guide for Schools, presents powerful strategies for structuring classroom routines that minimize opportunities for student misbehavior. He focuses on TIER I techniques which address:

  • Classroom rules, routines, and schedules
  • Positive behavioral expectations
  • Simple strategies to manage defiant and con-compliant students
  • Targeted use of rewards and feedback
  • Structured lessons to incorporate meaningful student choices
  • Management of daily classroom transitions

    In addition to Tier I strategies, Wright provides constructive and positive approaches to address student misbehavior, if and when it occurs. Learn how to implement RTI to create optimal learning environments with a minimum of discipline and behavior problems.

    SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: SELF-INJURY

    With Wendy Lader, PhD

    In Self-Injury, Dr. Wendy Lader demonstrates her brief analytic approach to working with clients who purposefully injure themselves. Self-injury, which often takes the form of cutting or burning, is best viewed as a coping strategy: Clients usually injure themselves because they want to avoid some painful emotion, and self-injury brings a sense of control over these unwanted feelings.

    Dr. Lader's approach is to analyze early childhood beliefs and relationships and then incorporate psychoeducation and cognitive°Vbehavioral strategies into the session. Interventions are designed to reduce self-injury by increasing awareness of impulsive behavior and expressing any avoided emotions.

    In this session, Dr. Lader works with a teenage girl who began cutting herself soon after her mother remarried. Dr. Lader talks with the client about the loss of her father, then gives the client a tool to help her monitor the emotions she experiences preceding the impulse to cut herself. This is an excellent example of a first session with an adolescent client who self-injures.

    TAKING A STAND: THE BULLYING PREVENTION - BULLY GIRLS

    Traditionally, bullying has meant physical intimidation and violence - and in the past was considered a problem only among boys. But experts are finding that girls can perpetuate bullying as well, although it often takes place on more subtle or secretive levels. This program focuses on increasing awareness of bullying among girls and educating viewers about how, when, and why it occurs. Understanding the difference between teasing and bullying, identifying specific female bullying techniques and tactics, recognizing warning signals that help is needed, knowing the best ways to report incidents, and getting school officials involved to combat the problem are all subjects thoroughly explored in the video.

    TAKING A STAND: THE BULLYING PREVENTION - BULLIES

    In the U.S., an estimated 1.6 million students in grades six through ten are bullied one or more times per week-and as many as 150,000 victims cut classes each day just to avoid it. In this program, Dr. James Shaw, author of Jack and Jill: Why They Kill, explains how to confront and counter bullying in the nation's schools. Candid interviews with bullied students including Evan Ramsey, convicted of killing his school's principal and a classmate, as well as with two reformed bullies-one male, one female-provide a wide-ranging peer perspective on school violence. Students also share their successes as part of anti-bullying and peer mediation programs in their schools.

    INTEGRATING MEDIA INTO THE CLASSROOM: THEORY AND RESEARCH

    "To be able to integrate as many of the multiple intelligences as possible into a single codified approach is extremely powerful and beneficial," says media theoretician Lou Fournier Marzeles. In this video, he and other recognized experts review the history of educational media and then clearly state the case for media as a powerful - and highly effective - classroom tool. "By using a lot of images in the classroom, are we really going to raise our test scores?" asks Dr. Lynell Burmark, author of Visual Literacy: Learn to See, See to Learn. "The answer to that is unequivocally Yes." Program segments include "History and Context," "Supporting Research," "Delivery Modes and Methods," "What Media Can Do for My Students," and "The Future of Media in the Classroom."

    CODEPENDENCY, EMOTIONAL VIOLENCE, AND DOMESTIC ABUSE

    The development of a healthy relationship between two people gives them the opportunity to express mutual respect and love for one another. However, being involved in a toxic relationship, one marked by codependency, emotional violence, or domestic abuse, can be emotionally and physically damaging and sometimes even fatal. These unacceptable behaviors must first be recognized for what they are. If a person is able to find the strength to leave a negative relationship and seek counseling, the result can be a gradual recovery of physical and emotional health for abused individuals and their loved ones. This program contains graphic material relating to domestic abuse that may not be suitable for all audiences. Teachers are encouraged to review this program before using it in their classroom.

    Learning Objectives:
  • Students will learn what codependency is, what its characteristics are, who suffers from it, and what its effects are.
  • Students will take a look at emotional violence and explore what it is.
  • Students will identify signs to look for to determine if they or someone they know is enduring emotional violence in his or her relationship.
  • Students will learn about the negative effects of emotional violence.
  • Students will examine domestic abuse and learn what it is, what the signs of domestic abuse are, and what negative effects accompany domestic abuse.
  • Students will explore some strategies to learn how to avoid codependency, how to end emotional violence, and how to escape domestic abuse.

  • "The film captures the frustration parents feel as they cope with their children's inappropriate behavior, scholastic failure and day-to-day hyperactivity; at the same time Odd Kid Out emphasizes that children with ADHD are intelligent and can even be gifted in spite of the social and academic difficulties they face. Odd Kid Out is highly recommended for parents, teachers, and others who work with ADHD-affected families." - Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg, Valdosta State Univerity, Educational Media Reviews Online

    PARENTS: OUR MOST IMPORTANT RESOURCE

    As all educators know, the importance of communicating with parents throughout the assessment process cannot be overstated. From gathering information from parents during registration to working with the parent hand-inhand throughout the school year, this partnership is crucial to understanding and charting the growth of the whole child.

    To demonstrate, we highlight a group parent-teacher meeting and presentation. The process of developing the portfolio, the formal checklist and the parentís reporting form is explained at the meeting.

    Another important segment shows a teacher screening and observing Alexis, a pre-school child, in the classroom. The teacher then shares her observations of Alexis with his mother during conferences at the school and at his home. Viewers will see how this willingness to meet in a variety of settings can enable teachers and parents to better discuss a studentís progress and to set goals together.
