Increasing Positive Teacher Actions in the Classroom.
A project designed to increase positive teacher actions utilized five fifth-grade teachers as subjects. Each of the five teachers was observed teaching on five different days; each observation was conducted approximately one week apart for a period of 30 minutes. The first two observations provided baseline data since the teachers were not aware of the observational or training procedures. Training procedures, following the initial observations, taught 10 categories of positive action by means of setting specific goals, recording self behavior, observing a model, and using feedback from classroom observations. Results obtained from the Positive Reinforcement Observation Schedule indicated an increase of positive teacher actions from 30 to 50 percent. This represented an increase of 22 percent in positive teacher actions. (MJM)
