I came across an awesome website dealing with behavior. It lists 124 types of behavior (with labels, such as the Manipulator, Rebel, Shy, Talks-Back, Victim, Vindictive, etc). It lists the behavior (signs and description), affects (the effects it has on the classroom), action (what can be done to help the situation) mistakes (what not to do) I think it's awesome, I could read this for weeks. It seems that the philosophy of this approach is that every behavior problem stems from an unfulfilled need; once we identify the need, fulfill that, the problem will disappear. I agree with that. It also lists primary and secondary human needs. And it's also great for parents, because everything is explained twice: once from a teacher point of view and once from a parent. Getting to the page is a little complicated though. You can go there directly from this link: http://www.disciplinehelp.com/ on the left, click on 'at school' or 'at home'. The main website is masterteacher.com, but I wasn't able to find this page from there, so its a little weird. When you look at the list of behaviors, it shows that you can only click on a few - there is a way around it, just type the behavior in the search button, and it will come up. But it's easier if you register, it's free, and everything will show up. I'm so excited about this, this would have saved me a lot of headaches during this past year and a half!
