Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is the best tool administrators have to promote positive behavior change, and middle school is the most important place where PBIS can be implemented. Middle school is when student engagement begins to plummet, never to bounce back.
The problem? While PBIS implementations often lead to incremental improvements in behavior, they miss a larger opportunity to improve learning outcomes by neglecting the issue of student engagement.
In this edWebinar, discover why implementing a PBIS framework that focuses holistically on student engagement — and not simply behavior — is not only more likely to promote positive behavior change but to lead to measurable gains in SEL and school climate.
After viewing this edWebinar, you’ll have a better understanding of the relationship between behavior and engagement, the relative impact of extrinsic and intrinsic motivation and how each can be represented within the context of PBIS, and PBIS’s potential to create a safe space for failure and experimentation that is critical to the development of middle school students.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to school and district leaders of middle school grade levels.
