  • Misbehavior...with Observation

  • I am going to observe Becca and Jack.
  • Becca takes the red car from Jack. The teacher yells "stop fighting with each other" from across the room. Yelling across the room, waving to catch a student's attention and rushing to the scene is a common response to misbehavior.
  • Student's Response
  • Raise your hand before speaking and leaving your seat
  • צדקה
  • צדקה צדקה צדקה
  • This type of response is disruptive for the students involved in the misbehavior and innocent bystanders. This response also requires the teacher to stop and investigate what actually happened versus what reportedly happened.
  • Teacher's Response
  • Benefits of Observation: 1. Students can rethink their behavior 2. Students learn how to handle disagreements 3. Students are less likely to lie about their behavior 4. Teachers spend less time intervening/investigating 5. Teachers have the power of the truth

  • Becca...would you like to play with the red car first?
  • Food for the Hungry
  • Jack and Becca resolve their problem without disrupting the entire classroom.
