Presenters: NSSED Coaches: Jill Bose-Deakins, Ph.D., Amy Cohan, Ph.D., Christina Piccirillo, Ph.D.
Intended Audience: This session is geared towards general education teachers, special education teachers, and support staff who address students’ mild and moderate problem behaviors throughout the day. Content is appropriate for educators working with grades kindergarten through high school.
Activity Description: Does your team struggle to identify a plan for mild to moderate (TIER 1 and TIER 2) misbehaviors? Do you need more ideas for interventions? Would you like a better structure to help guide your process for developing targeted interventions? This training provides participants with a systematic approach to understand behavior and explore hundreds of interventions to develop a more effective plan. Presenters will share content from the STOIC Analysis and Intervention in Randy Sprick’s Interventions book and the Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management through facilitated discussion and application activities. Participants will learn to identify why a student might be misbehaving and develop corresponding interventions that manipulate how we structure the environment, teach expectations, monitor student behavior, provide positive interactions, and correct fluently (STOIC). In addition, the participants will engage in a culminating activity using the 25-Minute Meeting Plan to integrate the training content within an efficient teaming practice.
Prerequisites: At least one participant attending from each district must bring a copy of the Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management book to the training. https://pacificnwpublish.com/products/Teacher%27s-Encyclopedia-of-Behavior-Management%2C-2nd-Edition%3A-100%252b-Problems%7B47%7D-500%252b-Plans.html
Learning Objectives: Participants will:
- 1. Increase ability to develop a hypothesis about the function of student’s chronic misbehavior
- 2. Learn to develop a brief intervention plan that addresses function and manipulates STOIC variables
- 3. Practice the 25-Minute Meeting Plan for teams in order to engage in efficient problem solving
PD Hours: 6.0
Registration/Coffee: 8:00 am to 8:30 am
Session: 8:30 am to 3:30 pm (One hour lunch, on your own)
Starting this year, Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is requiring IEIN numbers upon sign in to track your PD hours. NSSED will be complying by having this on the sign in sheets for all PD workshops. If you do not enter your PD hours through ELIS please disregard.
If you do not know how to find your IEIN number you can find it by logging into the Educator Licensure Information System (ELIS) - it will be in the upper right corner of the page. This will soon become part of the registration process for future classes, so if you have completed a class with us we should have it on file from here on out.
