Strategies to successfully IDENTIFY– ADDRESS– MODIFY & REDIRECT challenging student behavior
Teacher uses "Identify, Address, Modify, and Redirect," technique to prevent fight in his classroom.
Now, the teacher is perfectly positioned to redirect the student’s behavior (by fully understanding the outcome he wants to produce and being fully aware of his ability to control the situation and those around him, the teacher offers an alternative to the challenging student. Using a persuasive voice tone he presents the student with a way out that will benefit the student. He speaks in “We” terms and calls him son. He connects with him and totally captures the student’s mind and will. And, in an instant redirects the student to a place of safety, where he can further impress upon the student his next directive).
There is more in the video than meets the eye:
Who walked out of the classroom first, the teacher or the student? Why is that important and relevant? Why did the teacher have to keep repeating, "I'm right here?" What trigger words did the teacher use to help bring the student back to a position of calm? Why didn't the student wearing the blue hoodie get up and move during the encounter? Those questions and more are answered during our, "Teacher Empowerment Workshop."
