Differentiation as a Behavior Management for Special Needs Students Grades 6-8
Managing behavior balances with understanding our learners and their learning styles. Differentiating for various student instructional needs is key to harnessing learning style and other data. While much of it is about student engagement, it is also about knowing them, and how they learn, enough to engage them in learning more. Whether they learn kinesthetically (using physical, hands-on), or inter-personally (social) for example, gives us the opportunity to craft activities and performance tasks geared to garnering better behavior that then allows us to help them academically. Participants in this course will learn how to use learning style information to develop effective behavior management strategies.
- Practice with a variety of learning style theories to determine learning styles.
- Understand various age and grade appropriate behavior management theories as they align with multiple learning styles.
- Align behavioral theory to identified learning styles in order to successfully manage behavior and instruct students.
- Apply, through planning and job-embedded action steps, specific and measurable behavioral management goals and strategies as they align with identified learning styles.
