    Behavior Managemant Tips

    When I was reading the article "Behavior
    Management Tips" I found myself agreeing
    with much of what was said. I, however had
    a very negative reaction to the author's
    assumption that children only need to have
    their individual academic needs met. I
    teach in a classroom with children who are
    emotionally, behaviorally disturbed. These
    children also have individual behavioral,
    social, and emotional needs that need to be
    met. The consequences are different for
    different students based on there level of
    fuctioning in these areas. With schools
    integrating most students into regular
    classrooms, all teachers need to be aware
    of the individual needs of students wether
    they are academic or behavioral. My own son
    has a disability in this area and is in a
    regular second grade classroom. If his
    individual needs were not being met, I
    would be just as upset as the parent who
    has a child with academic needs that aren't
    being met. Don't get me wrong, I want the
    teacher to have expectations for his
    behavior, but thay have to meet his needs.
    They should be designed to help him grow in
    his ability and not punish him for his lack
    of ability in this area. Emotional growth
    is just as important as academic growth.
