Learning New Skills

At Clinton Elementary, we are focusing on various prevention strategies to increase the likelihood of appropriate behavior.

Learning new skills both behaviorally and academically requires lots of teaching. We help students by teaching and reteaching expectations, giving them feedback, and allowing an opportunity to redo a skill correctly while strengthening our relationship. When guiding students to improve behavioral skills, we also reflect on ways to prevent unexpected behavior. What routine or procedure do I need to reteach? Do I need to increase my active supervision? Am I acknowledging students frequently enough for showing the expected behavior? ¬†We appreciate everyone’s support of Clinton staff and students!
