Clip to ScrapBook #21

I was trained in that behavior method over 30 years ago. It went like this when you noticed a misbehavior or a lack of following directions:

1. First State the rule or direction.
2. Second Compliment someone in the class for following the rule or direction. (Oh thank you susan for getting your math book out.
3. Third Compliment the person who is following the direction or behavior that is closest or right next to the student. (Thank you xxx for xxx.
4. Last resort, Give student who will still not conform a consequence. In those days, we used the Steps.
Listed were Rules xxxx Consequences XXX Step One xx Step Two xxx Step Three xxx ... and the kids got to start over daily.

Nowadays "they" just want you to dole out the praise nonstop for no reason at all. Some of "them" want you to invent praise in order to motivate the kid. For example, "Oh, lazyboy, I see you have your pencil in your hand. That's great. You're ready to write. No mention that the rest of the class has been writing for 15 minutes. UGH
