Learning Objectives: Serving educational professionals and their students in school contexts is a challenging but meaningful endeavor. In this session, the presenter will draw on the extant research literature and his over 25 years working in schools to discuss functional contingencies related to teacher behavior change and provide an approach for assessing and then supporting teachers in the improvement of classroom programming. Participants will be provided strategies for interacting with school personnel, methods for identifying targets for teacher behavior change, and strategies for training educators. Specifically, participants will discuss school environments, putative reinforcers within those environments, and ways to modify the environmental to shift teacher practice. The presenter also will provide attendees the opportunity to use commercially available tools to score classroom videos and identify areas for improvement within classrooms, and subsequently develop behavioral objectives for teacher behavior change. Finally, the presenter will provide strategies for implementing coaching (e.g., behavior skills training, dynamic fading, self-management strategies). Through out the presentation, the presenter will discuss common issues related to special education service delivery to provide context for behavior analysts new to this area of practice.
Activities: The format includes lecture, small group activities, guided practice of the use of classroom observation tools and objective development, and discussion.
Audience: Behavior analysts new to working in public school settings
Content Area: Practice
Instruction Level: Basic
