Chalk Talk: The Importance of Positive Reinforcement in Schools
Student misbehavior can be the cause of numerous educational barriers. Teachers must waste time addressing the behavior, either during or after school hours. Other students may be distracted by the misbehaving student. Someone could get hurt by an ill-tempered pupil, even if inadvertently. And of course, the offending students typically misses many days of school due to punishments. Schools often spend too much time and money managing student behavior. Most of the time, administration and teachers focus on negative behavior and consequences; however, much psychological research has identified the importance of positive reinforcement to prevent misbehavior. High schools throughout the nation have adopted Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) programs, and they have had much success. The theory behind PBIS is that humans react positively to recognition and good attention.
