Teacher: Terri Vennerberg
In her Habitats activity, Terri Vennerberg uses the strategy of re-directing a group that displays off-task behavior and focuses their attention on their assignment. Vennerberg’s correction of inappropriate and irresponsible behavior illustrates Conduct Management.
Teacher: Vicki Oleson
Vicki Oleson monitors the students as they work together in their groups. As the learners try to reach consensus on the topic, Oleson encourages them to remember ways of solving disagreement within the group. This demonstrates Conduct Management.
Teacher: Lyn Countryman
Lyn Countryman’s students are learning about the human heart by gathering and analyzing data on their own heart rates. The teacher demonstrates Conduct Management as she corrects irresponsible and inappropriate behavior by reminding her students that one of the goals of working together is to respect one another. In addition, she encourages them to respond one at a time.
Teacher: Teresa Farrell
Teresa Farrell redirects inappropriate student behavior during her group work activity. A student complains about another student kicking him underneath the table. Farrell uses conduct management to get the students back on task and focused on the lesson. This demonstrates conduct management.
