Using Positive Behavior Support in Physical Education
Buchanan, Alice M.; Hinton, Vanessa; Rudisill, Mary
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v84 n5 p44-50 2013
Physical educators are constantly seeking ways to improve their teaching effectiveness and to manage the ever-increasing challenges they face, such as large classes, inadequate equipment, lack of support for children with special needs, and more. Teachers in special education and general education were introduced to Response to Intervention (RTI) and the use of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) just a few years ago as ways to improve student achievement and independence, and to manage student behavior. Such strategies are not limited to the classroom and can be very effective tools to use in physical education. This article provides a brief description of RTI and PBS and discusses how to utilize PBS in physical education. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
