Activity 1: Stages
Go to Behavior Advisor. This is a wonderful website that we will be using throughout the course and will help you master the course’s objectives. You will get to read someone else yapping about the same things I will be yapping about! (You must be thinking, “Oh, goody!”)
Dr. Mac authors this site and he is quite funny at times.
So, go to
Then scroll down to Dr. Mac’s Mountain. This is a series of videos that are broken down to make the videos downloadable. Watch them in order.
You may want to go back to the Dr. Mac homepage Behavior Advisor and select on Intervention Strategies. Then select on the button that says select here and scroll down until you see the heading Basics of Behavior Management. Select Discipline 101: A primer on behavior management. This is essentially the same material you will find in the podcast series so it is nice to have something to follow along with. He does a wonderful job of outlining the stages for behavior management that teachers often go through.
Some of my students have gotten hired in the middle of the year because teachers were not able to move past Stage 2. Other teachers were asked not to return as they were not able to move past Stage 3 (Stage 3 does not make kids, parents, administrators, nor school psychologists very happy!). Realistically, we all have been at Stage 3 at some point… and on any given day… but the idea is that we recognize where we are as quickly as possible and make plans to do things differently, immediately. Consider how the material connects to the textbook readings and models of behavior management.
When you complete the video series:
Write an approximate one page double-spaced paper (1-3 paragraphs) that reflects your thoughts and what you learned from this experience. be specific about content. Follow APA/scholarly conventions.
