This initiative primarily targets families seeking services at the Millwood’s Family Resource Centre in Lee Ridge, specifically families who have English as a second language and/or English-speaking individuals with a low literacy level. The target group for this initiative was determined through a thorough community assessment, and investigation of the resident population in the surrounding area. Demographic findings dictated that the area immediately surrounding the Millwood’s Family Resource Centre i.e. Lee Ridge, has a 55% of the population of families with children at different developmental stages (City of Edmonton, 2006). City of Edmonton (2010) also goes on to provide us with data that states 24% popula...
Positive feedback is all about promoting change in the behavior. I was raised within a household that rely on negative feedback and punishment to promote good behavior. Sometimes I did reward my nephews for positive behaviors but it was not done continuously or in a way that would result in positive behavior change. I come to believe that negative reinforcement was the key to ameliorating bad behaviors until I took notice the positive feedback I was given minimizes the bad attitudes and behaviors of the children. They were getting along well and whenever I praise one the others wanted to get that praise also, I believe that motivate them to behave appropriately. For instance, when one did a good deed I would make all the other clap while saying “well done” or something positive. It was a very long process because children do not change their ways from one day to the next, I couldn’t say I was very patience but see them attempt to better themselves, was what motivate
The reinforcement theory was of interest for a consideration as a tool in my current work environment and possibly be utilized as intervention of controlling the behaviors of employees. Since, I have observed the negative behavior of employees displayed due to varies unjust reasons that demotivate them to perform at an optimal level. Therefore, I believe implementing positive reinforcement to rebuild trust and to motivate employees by acknowledging a job well done, reward programs, and providing challenging task would encourage them and give them something to strive for to be higher achievers. In addition, all things mention and utilizing the reinforcement theory can reinforce the desired behavior in the workplace. Furthermore, I think that

The reward system is a beneficial behavioral modification teaching method, which promotes more positive behaviors in the classroom (Charles & Barr, 2014). Many teachers generally use the reward method of praise within their classrooms for a variety of reasons. The first advantage of using praise within the classroom is because it encourages students do repeat positive behaviors in the classroom. Many children are simply looking for attention and enjoy it, which makes it a great technique to use in the classroom (Charles & Barr, 2014). Another advantage for this reward type is that due to the encouragement, the students are able to perform at a better rate; students excel academically. A final advantage to using praise is that it is easily implemented into the classroom and requires little to no preparation. This makes the reward method a great addition for teachers as well as students because students get instant feedback without
According to Beard, Carpenter, and Johnson (2011), ”When mobility is impaired, opportunities for learning are limited and social interactions are impaired” (p. 98). Mobility needs have to be met for students with physical disabilities to have a good academic and social experience. Mobility aids are available but all factors must be considered when determining what aid/aids to choose. Data must be collected to ensure that they are meeting the student’s needs in a way that allows them to move as efficiently and independently as possible.

Positive reinforcement and consent encouragement is a key part of learning, which I observed in my week of placement. The students would get that feedback from their teacher after doing a task correct, it would allow the students to excel with the next task with a positive outlook and enough encouragement to do it on their own. It gave the students a safe and supported platform for their learning to occur ‘ (Mackay, 2013, pp. 360)

Even the way that the children pronounce certain words. It is important to be as descriptive as possible when writing the information down because you want the reader (parent because you should never share personal information with others) to be able to feel like they are there when the situation happened. And always remember to keep the information to facts and not opinions! Much like any other type of observation, anecdotal recordings also have disadvantages. This type of recording is not a lengthy. The observations happen over several minutes and then are over with. While those few minutes are taking place, the teacher can only focus on one to two children at a time. So during this time span, the teacher has given their attention to a maximum of two children, oppose to having interactions with the other children. “Self-care skills are points of observing and recording used to recognize milestones, plot, share progress, and plan curriculum.” (Page 65) The normal progression of self-help skills are dressing, feeding, toileting, and washing. As we already know, not every child is on the same page developmental wise. Some may need extra help, while others are ready to do it
