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 very difficult time getting in line and ready to walk to our classroom,” she begins to explain. “I know that you are capable of following directions because you have shown me many times before,” Ms. M. informs her class. She continues, “Today everyone is going to listen to my directions and follow them when I give the signal,” Ms. M. tells her class. Once she notices she has her class’ attention…...

...Running Head: APLLYING CANTER’S BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT CYCLE APLLYING CANTER’S BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT CYCLE Walter R. Keeping Grand Canyon University: EDU-536 Case Study: Disruptive Behavior Objective: Change the student’s behavior by applying Lee Canter's behavior management of assertive discipline. Student Name: Carson Smith (Transferred) Disruptive behavior in question! Bulling victim Carson Smith was transferred 4 months into the school year. Like most kids in a new place, Carson is a very quiet young man who doesn’t socially interact and is making bad grades. Due to being the victim of ongoing bulling that wasn’t dealt with, Carson has entered the new school in a defensive state of being with his guard up, thinking he will be treated the same and nothing changes. Carson has come to his new school discouraged and to the point of “giving up on education”. Carson has been pushed through the system and has been labeled as trouble maker because no one took the time to respect what was taking 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......

Canter's Behavior Management Cycle

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study Michelle Chandler Grand Canyon University: EDU-536 December 15, 2012 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). Otherwise, students may not be able to concentrate on or benefit from the lesson plan because the student or students that are misbehaving continue to disrupt the class. Speaking out of turn, chatter amongst students, getting off task, sleeping during class, using cell phones or other types of technology and yelling across the classroom are all examples of disruptive behavior. Disruptive behavior can even escalate to issues much more severe such as threatening the safety and welfare of other students or teachers in the classroom. The first step, and most important for a teacher is to identify the disruptive behavior and address the inappropriate actions of the student in a professional manner. Moreover, a teacher should take action as soon as they first notice the student misbehaving. Stopping one student’s disruptive behavior will demonstrate to the other students that misbehaving in the classroom will not be tolerated or they will face consequences. There are many ways to effectively manage disruptive behavior in a classroom. Although, one method has proven to be most successful for teachers and that is......

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......

...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......

Canter's Behavior Cycle

...Management Cycle Don Crosby Grand Canyon 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,......

Business Cycle

...CAUSES OF BUSINESS CYCLES Internal Factors: 1. Consumption : When consumer spending increases, businesses will increase production- causing them to hire more workers and purchase more materials and capital goods. When consumer spending decreases, the opposite will occur. 2. Business investment : The purchasing of capital goods increases the number of jobs in the economy because people have to make those goods. If investments increases, the economy will grow, if investment decreases, the economy will contract. 3. Government activity : The government can influence the business cycle through fiscal policy (its tax and spend policies) and monetary policy (its control of the money supply, largely through the federal reserve). External factors 1. Inventions and innovation : Major changes in technology can influence the business cycle. Usually technological changes move the economy in a positive direction, but this is not always so. 2. Wars and political events : The impact of such events on the economy are very fact specific- in other words, difficult to generalize about. Phases of business cycle Expansion/Growth : During this phase of the business cycle, consumer and business spending rise. Unemployment will drop during this phase, which will further aid consumer spending. - During the period of revival or recovery, there are expansions and rise in economic activities. When demand starts rising, production increases and this causes an increase in......

...Cash Receipts Cycle Upon the due date, the company collects payment from its clients usually they pick-up the payment every Friday. However, there are instances of special arrangements for collection for specified day of the week. The collector or messenger collects the payment from its clients and issues a duplicated copy of official receipts. The original is given to the clients as its copy. Before the end of the same banking day, the collector/messenger goes to their depository bank, prepares a deposit slip and deposits their collection. The authorized duplicate copy of the deposit slip is then attached to the copy of the duplicate official receipt and turned over to the accounting department. The accounts receivable clerk will reconcile the payment transaction. She checks if the validated duplicate copy of the deposit slips corresponds to the duplicate official receipt. If it matched, this will trigger the posting of payment of the client in the official receipts and updates the invoicing book and accounts receivable ledger. At the end of each week, the collector and the accounting staff prepares a weekly collection report and summary of accounts receivable aging report respectively that will be given to the accounting manager. The aging reports are for internal purposes and to see how many collection the company made. At the end of each month, the accounting manager does bank reconciliation to update the company’s book.

Accounting Cycle

...Accounting Cycle ACC/421 July 26, 2011 Jana Howie Accounting Cycle Accounting cycle is “the name given to the collective process of recording and processing the accounting events of a company. The series of steps begin when a transaction occurs and end with its inclusion in the financial statements” (Investopedia, 2011). The basic eight steps of the accounting cycle will be explained and described in this paper. Identifying and Recording These first steps are associated with one another and are done during the month while transactions happen. Business transactions are sorted into debits and credits that will be entered into accounting records. These transactions are identified through an original source document i.e. invoice, time card, purchase order). Journalizing “A company records in accounts those transactions and events that affect its assets, liabilities, and equities” (Kieso, Weygandt, & Warfield, 2007, p. 69).

Tourism Cycle

...THE TOURISM LIFE CYCLE: AN OVERVIEW OF THE CRETAN CASE Dr Konstantinos Andriotis 1 Hellenic Open University, Greece. Abstract: The increasing demand of international tourists for holidays has resulted in a rapidly increase of the number of tourist destinations. To explain destinations development the life cycle approach has been widely adopted. According to Butler (1980) destinations pass through a predictable sequence of six stages. These stages are: exploration, involvement, development, consolidation, stagnation and decline or rejuvenation. In each life cycle stage there are changes in the morphology, the types of tourists visitation, and residents’ attitudes towards tourism. th Through the presentation of historical data from the start of the 20 century up to now it is the aim of this paper to document these changes by providing evidence from the island of Crete. Five stages of tourism evolution are evident, namely: the era of ‘wealthy’ explorers, the era of cruisers, the Second World War and the Civil War, the reconstruction of the tourism industry, and the era of mass organised tourism. The findings confirm that today the island is on the maturity stage, tourism has resulted on substantial changes on the island’s coastal resorts and various attempts are required by the private and the public sectors to avoid decline.

Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: a Case Study

...Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study David is a five year old boy who from the very beginning displayed disruptive behavior inside and outside of the classroom. His teacher has logged his behavior, asked her administrators for support, and has referred the child for a behavioral evaluation. During this time the teacher spoke with the child’s parents who stated that his behavior was similar at home. They also shared that the majority of his disruptive behavior seemed to be his way of seeking attention. During this time David’s behavior was growing more and more disturbing and aggressive. Based on the teachers observation logs, David had difficulty getting along with other children and consistently did not follow directions. On any given day, David hits, yells, or knocks things out of peer’s hands to gain the teachers attention or get something he wants. During some part of the day David is physically aggressive toward one or two peers, this usually includes kicking or punching. Most of the children have learned to ignore him or stay away from him. When it comes to his academic skills he is at level. Although David has the skills to complete assignments or activities he is rarely unable to do so. Most of the issues begin when directions are given and when peers are working. The behaviors escalate when he is redirected. As the disruptive behavior continues the teacher begins to run out of patience with David and begins to call attention to every negative......

...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...

Behavior Management Cycle

...Canter’s Behavior Management Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle Thomas Morgan Grand Canyon University: EDU 536 July 2, 2012 Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle There are many examples of misbehavior that can occur in the classroom on a daily basis. These behaviors can range from small issues like talking in class to major issues such as fighting. These issues need to be handled as early as possible by the teacher to ensure that as less of a disruption to other students occurs. If other students become disrupted by the actions of a few then these students could very well begin to engage in the disruptive behavior and begin to now cause a whole new set of issues for the classroom. Another consequence of the teacher not addressing the misbehavior immediately is that the behavior can become harmful to others or the student themselves. As a teacher, student safety should be the most important thing that the teacher is worried about. Once these behaviors are corrected and other students see that the behavior will not be allowed in the class, then they will begin to formulate within themselves how they should act and perform in that manner. An effective method of classroom management that has been proven to work is Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle. These are steps that were developed by Lee Canter as a way of preventing and handling misbehaviors in the classroom. Case Study Sanchez is a 12 year old, fifth grader in my homeroom class.

...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......
