Designed for Teachers: How to Implement Self-Monitoring in the Classroom
Vanderbilt, Allison A.
Beyond Behavior, v15 n1 p21-24 Fall 2005
Self-monitoring is used to increase on-task behavior of students by encouraging them to monitor their own behavior (Hallahan, Lloyd, & Stoller, 1982). According to Daly and Ranalli (2003), there are many benefits of self-monitoring: (1) It is an effective tool for changing behavior; (2) It promotes generalization of the appropriate behavior to other environments; (3) It frees the teacher to attend to other students and focus on content; (4) It increases student independence by making students responsible for their own behavior; (5) It is inexpensive; (6) It is relatively easy to teach and implement; (7) It can be used on a variety of behaviors; and (8) It can be used successfully by students with different ability levels. This paper outlines the 10 key steps for implementing self-monitoring in the classroom and addresses key questions regarding self-monitoring. (Contains 2 figures.)
