Active Teaching of Rules

This is intervention provides a framework to assist teaching in the use of modeling practice and feedback to instruction classroom behavioral expectations. The intervention starts with the explicit display of rules in each classroom environment followed by a review and discussion of the rules with the students. This is then followed by having individual students model the appropriate behavior focused upon in the rule. Finally, when children subsequently exhibit the desired behavior they are immediately praised. This intervention is related to direct instruction methodologies, which are supported by a substantial literature base. This intervention can be followed up with a contingent observation procedure (sit and watch) for children who exhibit misbehavior afterwards.
