- At the right time
- In the right place
How do we do that?
At Yale, we use a set of strategies and systems to increase our capacity to
- (a) reduce classroom disruption,
- (b) educate all students, and
- (c) encourage all students at Yale to view positive behavior as within their control.
- Clearly defined goals
- Research-based practices and interventions
- Supportive administrative systems
- Use of data in problem solving
These strategies serve to support
- Regular, predictable, positive teaching and learning environments
- Adults and peers who serve as positive role models
- Consistent, positive feedback
- Physical environments that support academic success
- Opportunities to intentionally build student social skills
Our goal is to create a POSITIVE school culture that is:
- Use common language
- Have a common understanding of expectations
- Teach to develop common experience
- Provide regular recognition
- Provide positive redirection
- Violent/disruptive behavior is not tolerated
- Students feel comfortable taking risks
- All adults use similar expectations
