To put it simply, it is just the smart thing to do. It provides support for actions and implementations in the classroom as well as giving the teacher information to follow so he or she will have an idea what will happen in the classroom before the strategy is implemented. Not to mention many research-based strategies outline the implementation methods. Countless strategies have been researched but some of the most impressive fall under the positive behavior support category, which provide positive reinforcement for good behavior while avoiding positive punishment in most cases. Effective Behavior Management Strategies for Teachers Student behavior problems are a major concern for the public, administrators, and teachers.
Children are able to learn positive behaviours though watching interactions between teachers and other children. According to Hyson and Taylor (2011), this strategy works, since children are more likely to develop prosocial behaviour through imitation. An example of prosocial behaviour could be when a teacher is consistently generous and caring towards the children. Children are more likely going to copy this behaviour when observing. Another strategy to promote prosocial behaviour which can be used by teachers is through building a secure relationship with children.
Developing positive teacher-student relationships is important, as exhibiting higher levels of shared control, trust, and intimacy in an educational environment, is reported to result in greater learning (Dobransky and Frymier, 2004, p. 211). By creating a caring framework, which permits effective teaching to take place in the community, learning partners are able to facilitate a positive, educational environment in which children can develop (Groundwater-Smith and Ewing et al., 2010). Learning partners including, teachers, parents, support staff, the community and other students; contribute towards building this successful and vibrant learning environment. For instance, if a teacher is unable to facilitate for all students learning styles and abilities, then some students will require the aid of the school support staff. If a student is not in a caring, safe environment at home, then their fundamental needs are not fulfilled and they are unable to fully... ... middle of paper ... ...ive movements towards constructive teacher-student relationships, as well as changing societal influences that allow students to explore an extensive range of issue in a broad-minded, opportunistic environment.
Introduction Parent’s active involvement in the educational process of their child is priceless. Together, parents and teachers can share knowledge and resources that will make certain the individual needs of the student are being met within the best learning environment. Collaborative efforts from parents, educators and the school ensure a positive and rewarding experience for the student. Parents should in no way feel that they are being left out of the educational decisions; therefore, educators have an obligation that encourages parental participation. Furthermore, promoting a collaborated working relationship between school and parents has shown to reduce the achievement gap, especially among diverse learners.
In addition, to point out the difficulties that school counselors experienced to help students with high risk mental problems. For example, due to the limited time that a school counselor has to actually use to the fullest his or her counseling skills in a school setting, the school counselor may face difficulties identifying students’ mental health problems (Gruman, et al., 2013). The main purpose of this article was to explain the importance of the elements that were used to transform the school program, and how incorporating counseling interventions in a school setting helps the students academically and their overall well-being. One important element of this transformation was the Navigation 101 guidance program, which is a program where teachers, administration, school counselors, and parents had access to input and track the student status. This program with the help of those who worked and care for students help t... ... middle of paper ... ... lost when it comes to school counseling duties, school systems, or programs that are allow to used in a school setting, but this article gave me a understanding of how programs can help school counselors on assisting students' needs.

Miller reveals from his research that students learn how to behave “cooperatively with older and younger students” and they learn to confront each other when problems arise rather than acting out and showing behavioral issues. Growing up in a smaller environment can be more beneficial than a single grade classroom because children learn to deal with social issues quicker than if they were in a larger more segregated setting. Along with several social benefits that are the results of a good classroom environment, having a multi-grade classroom can lead to several positive cognitive effects in
