Positive behavior supports are typically presented as a collection of methods to simply manage, or sustain student behaviors at basic levels, and in support of civil cultures in classroom settings. However, with the inclining demands of today’s world, human performance must incline at the same rate to match them. If human performance must be higher, then societies’ methods, including school-based practices, must help learners to wring more from their academic performance. The common approach of managing and sustaining behavior is appropriate, but falls far short of using positive behavior support principles and techniques to draw from students their full interests and capabilities. In this session, participants will explore behavioral principles and techniques to help students’ unleash the 30% of interest, effort and ingenuity they hold back, or never spend on their own learning.
