Please rewrite it to use a more formal, encyclopedic tone. Behavior management is behavior problems preschool to behavior modification.
It is a less intensive version of behavior therapy. In behavior modification, the focus is on changing behavior, while in behavior management the focus is on maintaining order. There is a great deal of research related to “behavior change” and “behavior management”. Student Davidson does, in actuality, misinterpret the origination of the theory in connection to England’s Industrial Revolution. Skinner and Carl Rogers have given two distinctly different approaches for addressing the behavior. Many of the principles and techniques used are the same as behavior modification yet delivered in a less intensively and consistent fashion. Usually, behavior management is applied at the group level by a classroom teacher as a form of behavioral engineering to produce high rates of student work completion and minimize classroom disruption.
In addition, greater focus has been placed on building self-control. Contemporary behavior modification approaches involve students more actively in planning and shaping their own behavior through participation in the negotiation of contracts with their teachers and through exposure to training designed to help them to monitor and evaluate their behavior more actively, to learn techniques of self-control and problem solving, and to set goals and reinforce themselves for meeting these meetings. In general behavior management strategies have been very effective in reducing classroom disruption. In addition, recent efforts have focused on incorporating principles of functional assessment into the process. There are three main parts to behavior management systems: Whole group, table group, and individual. These can be things such as marble jars for the class, prize charts for the tables, and a grid chart with 25 spaces for individual students. There are many different types of charts you can find to use for each part.
Over the years, behavioral management principles such as reinforcement, modeling and even the use of punishment have been explored in the building of prosocial behavior. This area is sometimes referred to as “Behavioral Development” or Behavior analysis of child development. Reinforcement is particularly effective at least early in the learning series if context conditions are similar. Evidence exists to show some generalization. Recent research indicates that behavioral “interventions” produce the most valuable results when “applied” during early childhood and “early adolescence. More controversial has been the role of punishment in forming prosocial behavior.
