(tudents that are struggling !ill ha"e s#ecific things to !or' on !ith #artners, the teacher, or in small grou#s to be #ro"ided !ith additional su##ort. Supportive Techniques

(tudents constantl$ need su##ort at school and it is our &ob as facilitators to use techni+ues to #ro"ide this su##ort. his su##ort can loo' li'e man$ different things. %t can be done as a !hole class, small grou# su##ort and indi"iduall$. 9hile students are sharing as a !hole class #ro)imit$ !ill be im#ortant. %f standing too close to a student the$ !ill tr$ to s#ea' onl$ to me but if % am standing far a!a$ it !ill force them to s#ea' u# and allo! them to share !ith the !hole class. ?sing effecti"e bod$ language, "oice, tone and facial e)#ression are also im#ortant techni+ues to use to su##ort students learning, according to Aones 0Charles, 20112. (tudents !ill notice and res#ond to $our actions as $ou are guiding them through their academic success. Being a!are of this and ad&usting it as necessar$ !ill be something % !ill constantl$ #ractice. % !ill also circulate around the room to assess !here m$ students are at. Do the$ com#rehend the !or', do % need to re3teach some things, guide them to !here the$ can find additional hel#, !hat +uestions can % use to facilitate their understanding, and gi"e them #ositi"e feedbac'. ,ccording to Aones after $ou ha"e su##orted students $ou should !al' a!a$ and not ans!er things for them. ,llo! them to figure things out on their o!n. 0Charles, 20112. % agree !ith this. % !ant m$ students to feel the success of 'no!ing that the$ can do it and that hard !or' #a$s off. ,s students !or' inde#endentl$ this !ill gi"e me an o##ortunit$ to !or' one on one !ith struggling students as !ell as in small grou#s. Pro"iding feedbac', more direct instruction and #ractice !ill hel# these students succeed and allo! me to build off of their strengths. Intervention Techniques Conse+uences !ill de#end on the grade % am teaching. ?sing a s$stem !here students #ull cards, mo"e cli#s on a chart, etc. are great tools for $ounger students. hese charts !ill be "isible to trac' beha"ior. *)#ectations !ill be clear and students !ill 'no! e)actl$ !hat is

a##ro#riate and !hat is not. 9arnings, time outs, and if necessar$, calls home or "isits to the office !ill be used. (imilar conse+uences !ill be used for u##er grades but the s$stem to trac' their beha"ior !ill be more age a##ro#riate. he$ ma$ inde#endentl$ trac' their o!n beha"ior alongside the teacher and ha"e different conse+uences that allo! them to reflect on ho! to change the beha"ior. eaching beha"ior is emotional as much as it is intellectual. ,ccording to Marshall !e should disci#line using #ositi"it$, es#eciall$ in our !ords. 9e must teach our students !hat !e !ant them to do, not !hat !e don8t !ant them to do. Disci#line should include gi"ing student8s choice, as'ing reflecti"e +uestions and using #ositi"e language. 0Charles, 20112 ,ccording to Morris focus should be on the #ositi"e, teaching a##ro#riate beha"ior, being a leader b$ modeling but !ithout humiliation, and then !i#e the slate clean !ithout bac'ing a!a$ from disci#line. 0Charles, 20112 his is so im#ortant !hen using a beha"ior s$stem. (tudents should 'no! that each da$ is a ne! da$ and a ne! start. he$ al!a$s ha"e o##ortunities to ma'e a better choice and learn from their mista'es. Communication with Parents/Guardians Communication bet!een the #arentCguardian, student and teacher is e)tremel$ im#ortant. % !ill ha"e "arious methods of communication a"ailable. % !ill as' on a form at the beginning of the $ear the best !a$ to communicate; #hone, email, letter home !ith student etc. his !a$ % can reach all of the #arentCguardians. *ach !ee' a ne!sletter !ill go home !ith details about !hat !e are learning that !ee'. his !ill include dail$ reading logs, s#elling !ords and an$ other u#coming #ro&ects or school announcements. his !ill also be sent out "ia email. % !ill also ha"e a message bo) b$ the front door for #arents to dro# a note of concern, +uestion or comment. his !ill be eas$ for #arents that are in a rush, don8t ha"e time to tal', or &ust feel more comfortable

communicating this !a$. M$ classroom !ill ha"e an o#en door #olic$. ParentsCguardians !ill be encouraged and !elcomed to #artici#ate in an$ !a$ the$ can. %f the$ !ant to come in and assist !ith a lesson, acti"it$, #art$, field tri#, etc. the$ !ill al!a$s be !elcome. Parent teacher conferences !ill also be a time to learn more about m$ students and their families. he$ !ill both be encouraged to attend together. Celebrating their child through achie"ement !ill be a #ositi"e e)#erience for all. (tudents !ill thin' of goals beforehand that the$ !ould li'e to !or' on !ith their famil$ at home and at school. his !ill gi"e e"er$one an o##ortunit$ to connect school !ith !hat is going on at home. 9or'ing together !ith a common goal !ill add to the o"erall success of the student.
