So, this is how I spent my day on Tuesday:
I went to day-long training on Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtII). It was a very informative training. I learned a lot about RtII. To learn more about RtII you can visit the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Networks site.
While at the training, I realized how much our school could benefit from a Positive School Wide Behavior Support Plan. I would love to focus more on positive behavior at my school. I think focusing on positive behavior would help students who are displaying positive behavior to be reinforced. I think a lot of the time students who are displaying negative behavior get reinforced and get attention. Any attention, even negative, is attention nonetheless. If students were rewarded for positive behavior, students might start displaying more positive behavior in order to be reinforced.
