Implementing a Group Contingency Behavior-Management System in Physical Education
Healy, Sean; Hirsch, Shanna E.; Lloyd, John W.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v88 n9 p50-56 2017
Behavior management issues may impede learning in physical education (PE), yet there is a paucity of evidence-based behavior-management programs studied in the PE environment to assist PE teachers to be better prepared to handle these issues. Classwide-function intervention teams (CW-FIT) is a group contingency procedure for managing student behavior. This article provides guidelines for implementing CW-FIT in physical education, presenting the components of the procedure in five steps: (1) preparation, (2) introducing the game, (3) implementation, (4) closing the lesson, and (5) assessing CW-FIT. Step-by-step directions to support teachers are also included.
