Asking a class to collectively decide what signal to use can be a community builder. Timeouts: Hundreds of studies support the timeout strategy , which is now considered an indispensable component of many evidence-based behavior management systems. Unlike the dunce cap punishment, which intentionally shames and stigmatizes students, a timeout is now used in progressive classrooms to provide an emotional breather in a less socially charged area of the room.
Over-Correction: Younger students may find classroom routines foreign or overwhelming. Take the time to model the appropriate procedure and then rehearse it three times or more until each step of the routine becomes second nature.

After these rehearsals, my second graders took pride in executing the required actions quickly and perfectly for the rest of the year. Private Reminders: When partnered with discreet praise, private reminders to students about how to act responsibly increase on-task behaviors. Researchers recommend using short and unemotional reminders.
As Peter says, there is no research on Learning Styles and time spent on this is time distracted from core business: actually teaching kids. Peter, I was not suggesting that in each and every lesson a teacher caters for each preferred learning style completely.
I was saying that some students have a preferred learning style so over the course of a year, for example, lessons should be covering all learning styles to help all students to access the content according to their preferred learning style. Variability is important. I was dealing with differentiation issue at my previous job place, and I always felt lack of explanations from my colleagues of what differentiation really means.

Peter Westwood 20 April I think not. But I guess it depends on how one defines learning style. Some definitions of learning style focus on a person's typical way of thinking, reasoning, remembering and problem solving cognitive activity. Other definitions refer to the sensory channels modalities that an individual prefers to use when taking in information. If one believes that modality preference vision, hearing, touch, etc is the key feature of a learning style, then you would certainly say that most children with autism appear to have strong modality preferences.

Ian 19 April Peter Westwood 22 April This process-related method also addresses the fact that not all students require the same amount of support from the teacher, and students could choose to work in pairs, small groups, or individually. And while some students may benefit from one-on-one interaction with you or the classroom aide, others may be able to progress by themselves. Teachers can enhance student learning by offering support based on individual needs. The product is what the student creates at the end of the lesson to demonstrate the mastery of the content.

This can be in the form of tests, projects, reports, or other activities. You could assign students to complete activities that show mastery of an educational concept in a way the student prefers, based on learning style. The conditions for optimal learning include both physical and psychological elements. A flexible classroom layout is key, incorporating various types of furniture and arrangements to support both individual and group work.
Psychologically speaking, teachers should use classroom management techniques that support a safe and supportive learning environment. The benefits of differentiation in the classroom are often accompanied by the drawback of an ever-increasing workload.
