The Behavior Management Cycle is a systematic approach that will help teachers to motivate their student to quickly follow their directions. (Canter, L. 2006) This helps to maximize instruction time. There are three steps to the Behavior Management Cycle. Step one is to effectively communicate the explicit directions you expect students to follow. Step two is to use behavior narration to support students who are following the directions. Step three is to take corrective action with students who are still not complying with the directions. (Canter, L. 2006) In a fifth grade classroom the teacher is conducting a math lesson on multiplying two digits by two digits. The class earns points when students are following direction. They are day two of a six day reward period. The reward they are working towards is to have 20 extra minutes of recess. The teacher has explained that she wants them to learn how to follow directions. There are also consequences if they choose not to follow directions. The first time the students do not follow the directions they receive a warning. The second time is that they lose five minutes of recess. The third time is a call home to their parents and the fourth is that they are sent to the principles office. The teacher and the students discussed this at the beginning of the school year and have agreed to these consequences. Lee and Sarah are two students in Mrs. Smith’s class. Lee and Sarah have been disruptive to the class by talking out and not following Mrs. Smith directions.

Lee Canters Behavoral Cycle

...place. By applying Lee Canter's behavior management cycle, I am going to demonstrate that after a very short period of time, Carson will begin to thrive through the guidance of his teacher and peers, while emerging as a successful young adult. I will also show the importance of the classroom environment that Carson will enter and how it relates to his future success. By implementing Carson into my management plan I had to sure he would start out on a positive note and let him know that he had a voice. Canters plan was simple but for a student with a bulling background it would provide Carson the tools he needed to begin. During his first day of homeroom, students were busy preparing for a busy and fun day. I interacted with them in a calm, insistent, and consistent manner. Lee Canter stated, “Students had a right to learn in a calm, orderly classroom, and teachers had a right to teach each without being interrupted by misbehavior”, Canter, L., and Canter, M. (1976) Assertive Discipline. By having the student’s role model the Assertive Discipline approach, it gave Carson time to make a decision whether to conduct him-self properly, by making good or bad choices in school. In order for Carson to make good decisions we need the presence of an assertive teacher. We come into this world not knowing right from wrong and we as teachers and educators have role to fulfill. The role is simple, respect the individual you are trying to teach and remember they are......

Canter's Case Study

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study Effective teachers are aware that they must motivate students to quickly follow directions and to get on and stay on task to insure and increase time for learning (Canter, 2006). Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle is based on a three step process to effectively communicate directions, reinforce those directions with behavioral narration, and taking appropriate corrective action for those who still chose to not comply with direction. Utilizing Canter’s cycle will assist teachers in handling misbehavior. A Case Study Luke is a tenth grade student in Mrs. Flanagan’s American History class. He is very popular because of his talent on the basketball court and only comes to school to play sports. He keeps his grades just high enough to remain on the team and puts forth little effort in his work but enjoys being the center of attention on and off the court. In the past, teachers have allowed him to get by with poor effort and classroom disruptions, so he continually talks and calls out during lessons. When assignments are due, Luke either “forgets” the assignment or comes up with some kind of excuse, actually utilizing the classic “my dog ate it” which gets a laugh from his classmates. Other students find Luke’s behavior entertaining and get off task to join in. Mrs. Flanagan is becoming more and more frustrated with Luke’s behavior, not only his class disruptions,......

Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: a Case Study

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: Case Study Grand Canyon University- EDU 450 October 5, 2013 When a teachers have a class with one or more disruptive behaviors it can be hard on teachers and students that come to school to teach and learn. According to the reading, “Effective teachers know that by motivating students to grasp directions quickly they can stay focused on instruction, which is critical to the learning process, and less time will be exhausted on noncompliant student behavior (Canter, 2006). When classes have a lot of misbehaviors it can cause the others to lose their concentration. Some behaviors that can be consider disruptive would be speaking out of turn, getting off task, chattering with other students, sleeping in class, and yelling throughout the class. Some of the disruptive behaviors can increase if students do not have consequence and behavior is not corrected. Some behaviors can be even threatening to the safety of the students and teachers. Teachers need to be able to identify all different type of behaviors and know how to address the behaviors when they occur. The teacher should always address the behaviors when they first happen so that the student will know what not to do. When the teacher stop the behavior it will show the other students in the class that behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. The Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle has worked for teachers that have disruptive behaviors. In Miss. Rodgers’s third......

Canter Cycle

...Behavior Management Cycle Paula Martin Grand Canyon University EDU 536 October 15, 2012 Behavior Management Cycle It is a Tuesday morning and the bell has just rung. Most students are making their way to their classroom lines preparing to be escorted to class. The kindergarten playground that was once buzzing with activity is now quiet with six lines slowly being formed. Ms. M. has moved through the crowd of parents and has found her line. Ms. M. claps her hands three times and pauses. Students are familiar with this routine and begin looking in Ms. M.’s direction. She claps her hands three times again and several students clap three times in return. She then walks along the line and claps three times again. This time the entire class turns their bodies to the front of the line and they all clap three times in unison. Students are waiting for Ms. M. to speak and give the class direction. This paper will explain how Ms. M. addresses a situation created using Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle. This particular student often has difficulty transitioning and following directions. Explicit Directions Ms. M. stands in the front of her line and signals for her class to quiet their voices by placing her hand in the air in the peace symbol, this is a signal students are familiar with and have practiced from day one of school. She now has the class’ attention and she is now ready to give her students their first direction of the day. “Yesterday my class had a......

Canter's Behavior Cycle

...University: EDU. 536 Jan. 23rd, 2014 Lee Canter, and his wife Marlene, are both teachers who, in 1976,, came up with their own method for discipline, and behavior management, which became one of the most popular methods used by teachers. It was called” assertive discipline”, and put forth the idea that the teacher should take charge of the classroom. The Canter’s stated that, “that students had a right to learn in a calm, orderly classroom, and teachers had a right to teach without being interrupted by misbehavior.” (Building Discipline, 11th ed., Charles) Hence, assertive discipline was born. It encourages students to make good, positive choices. Like the Wong’s. The Canters also believed that there should be procedures for the classroom, and they should laid down, and taught at the beginning of the school year. Now we all know that as much as we would like to think that our students are going to enter the classroom quietly, sit in their desks with their hands folded, waiting for our instructions, and hanging on our every word, the reality is that is never going to happen. Just asking them to take out a pencil and piece of paper could create a major catastrophe. Classroom , and behavior management is vital in creating a great learning environment. Canter said, “The foundation of managing classroom behavior rests upon your ability to motivate students to simply follow your directions. (Classroom Management for Success, Canter 2006). Knowing that students will......

K to 12 Classroom Management Strategies: Their Impact on Student Academic Performance

...Non-interventionist Classroom Management (Rogers, Kounin and Wong) Planning ahead to extinguish any behavioural issues before they occur in the classroom Interventionist Classroom Management (Skinner, Bandura, Dreikurs and Canter) Seek to manage the classroom by intervening to shape student behavior with consequences Figure 1 Theoretical Framework In the context of this theoretical framework, interventionists react to student behavior with consequences, while non-interventionist, rather that react to students, plan their environment to proactively facilitate the classroom. Interactionalists seek to utilize the best aspects of interventionists and non-interventionists classroom management (Martin & Sass, 2010). These three classroom management approaches will be reviewed below, including the important historical figures aligned with aspects of interventionist, non-interventionist and interactionalist approaches to classroom management. Research evidence supporting or not supporting each classroom management approach will be presented. Inrterventionist Classroom Management Interventionist classroom managers seek to manage the classroom by intervening to shape student behavior with consequences. Skinner, Bandura, Dreikurs, and Canter each provide a unique contribution to our present understanding of interventionist classroom management.

Philosophy on Education

...by teachers. As in Glasser’s Choice theory, the teacher’s role is now the facilitator, guiding students to knowledge rather than just presenting them with facts. In this model the teacher’s authority comes from their expertise (Gordon 1989) rather than societal given fear and respect based on potential punishments they may hand out. A humanist approach does not believe in any punishment or physical incentives/ accolades. It relies on the Humanistic belief that all humans have an innate desire for growth through the learning of relevant information and skills (Rogers, 1951) and that using this intrinsic motivation is a much more powerful tool. Canter and Canter advocate that a teacher must teach rules and reward compliance with personal and formal recognition and incentives (Canter and Canter, 1976). However, in saying this Canter and Canter are laying the foundations for coercive use of power reflecting the teacher’s ability to exercise power over the students in an effort to control them’ (Schmuck & Schmuck, 2001). On the contrary to this assertive discipline approach Glasser takes the view ‘No one can control someone else’s behaviour (Glasser, 1998). Taking an egalitarian approach to discipline will see students more willing within their learning environment. This can be achieved with high autonomy support and feedback about both student’s accomplishments and behaviours. Whereas an authoritarian tone is set if the student is being encouraged to learn through teacher......

Cririque on Surrogates

...a night club, when they were shot with a weapon that uploads a virus to the surrogate, which corrupts the failsafe, and kills the operators. One of the victims turns out to be the son of the creator of surrogacy, Doctor Lionel Canter. It turns out that Jarod (Canter’s son) was using one of his father’s surrogates and that the crime was failed assassination attempt on Doctor Canter. Agent Tom Greer (Bruce Willis) is assigned to the case, which happens to be the first murder in years. The company that makes the robots, VSI, are the ones that are actually behind the assassination attempt because they know that Doctor Canter has changed his mind and is now against the use of surrogates. There are reservations of people that are against the use of surrogates, located in major cities throughout the United States. They are lead by man known as The Prophet (Ving Rhames). We find out that The Prophet is actually a surrogate used by Doctor Canter. Doctor Canter gets control of Agent Peters’ (Greer’s partner) surrogate by killing her and then gains access to the system’s mainframe. His intention is to upload a virus to the system that permanently destroy all surrogates and kill all their operators. Agent Greer breaks into Canter’s mansion where Doctor Canter is operating the surrogate and manages to stop the upload and destroys all surrogates but without any harm to their users, which results in everyone having to use their real bodies again.

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle There’s a lot ways to handle a student disruptive behavior in the classroom. However, in this paper this will discuss the benefit of how Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle can benefit a child behavior. In this paper I will describe a child personality, behavior and how I will handle the student in my classroom. On page 72, the Canters’ insisted “The Canters’ approach urged teachers to “take charge” in the classroom and showed them how to do so- just what teachers were looking for at a time when prevailing permissiveness was making teaching ever more difficult” (Canters, 2001, pg. 72). This is a powerful tool that helps the teacher manage a discipline plan to address disruptive students. The Canters’ Cycle is a model that helps the teacher not only addresses disruption, but yet, allows students to learn and change the behavior. Every teacher has a disruptive child in their classroom. There is one specific child that always does something to interrupt. Sometimes a child may not have to do the big things but also, their small disruptive behaviors than cause disruption. There was a child name Joe and he was eight years old. He has his ways in getting the teacher attention, which I can never see to understand why he continue do the things he did. He was funny, lazy, and never seem to pay attention in class. There are students that sometimes seem to fall off track, but Joe seems to fall off track every time. His behavior was an everyday thing......

Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: a Case Study

...successfully handle disruptive behaviors. One way would be to put into place, Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle, into effect (Canters 2006). This cycle consists of three steps; first, effectively communicating explicit directions, second, using behavior narration and third, taking corrective action. Prior to using Canters’ cycle the teacher should take the time to use two strategies at the beginning of the year that will help minimize disruptive behaviors. First, create lessons on appropriate behavior for specific parts of the school day, activities, and transitions (Canters p. 31) and second create a, “Responsible Behavior Curriculum,” for the first two weeks of the school year (Canters chap. 7). This curriculum serves as a check list to introducing acceptable and appropriate behaviors that are expected from students throughout the school day. If the teacher were to implement Canters’ cycle she would begin with the first step. The first step is for the teacher to be precise and specific when giving David directions that are expected to be followed. Directions should be kept clear and direct and at all costs the teacher should avoid being vague. The directions should include exactly how the teacher wants the students to behave. Explicit directions should include the, “expectations for student verbal behavior, physical movement, and participation” (Canters p. 53).The teacher should not assume that students understand the expectations and should continue to remind them......

...Running Head: Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study It only takes one student, whose disruptive behavior impacts the entire learning environment of the whole class. Disruptive behavior can be any behavior that bothers, interferes with, disturbs, or prevents effective learning (Canter, 2006). Disruptive behavior can be broken down into three categories: verbal behavior, physical movement, and participation in an activity. The largest category of disruptions can be found in verbal behavior (Canter, 2006). The following case study deals with classroom disruptions of verbal behavior. Case Study Eric is 15 years old. He is a sophomore at Everyday High School. Eric was a very good student last year with little behavioral issues. However this year, Eric has been displaying disruptive behavior in the classroom. Over the summer, Eric’s parents got divorced. Eric’s dad, Dennis, was having an affair, and moved in with his girlfriend thirty miles away. Eric’s mom, Julie, caught Dennis cheating on her which tore her to pieces. Julie has not taken the split of very well. She has begun drowning her sorrows with the heavy use of alcohol. Julie is also meeting with a counselor to help her work through this tough issue in her life. She has been having so much trouble dealing with the situation, that she sent Eric to live with her parents...

Canter

...Running Head: Canter 2 Teachers can expect disruptions on a daily basis. The disruptions or misbehaviors can by any numerous events from talking, not being focused, not sharing, or being prepared. The teacher needs to have a plan in place to be able to effectively manage the disruptions immediately. A disruption from a child misbehaving can be very damaging to the rest of the class and throw the rest of the day off when it is not handled immediately. Behaviors have to be handled consistently as well; if the teacher allows one child to misbehave the other students receive the message that it is ok to follow the behavior. When students are misbehaving it can cause themselves and other students to lose focus in the lesson. A classroom full of misbehaviors can also cause students to feel threatened. When a student does not feel safe and secure in his or her classroom, he or she is less likely to succeed. Not only do teachers have to prepare and teach lessons, they also need to be able to recognize the misbehavior and control it in a timely and professional manner. Teachers set the example for students and students can learn just as much from the example being set. A teacher can stop the disruption and use it as a teaching moment for the students. Having an action plan with consequences in place that is consistently followed is important. Many management......
