This might seem a little contradictory from my last post but looking back at August I have learned a lot! The other day 2 students who seem to never be affected by my behavior management were finally affected. I found their weakness--free time. It's a long story so to sum it up they were on the lowest level on my level system and weren't making up their time. On top of that I had many teachers complaining to me that they were taking 5 minute bathroom breaks every time there were coming from their gen. ed. class to mine and then again back to their gen. ed. class. I talked with my facilitator about what we should do and we made an escort plan. I kept tweaking it to make sure they were doing what they needed to. I have been impressed that the more I understand the students and tweak my management plan the students behave better.
