Using Teacher Greetings to Increase Speed to Task Engagement
Allday, R. Allan; Bush, Miranda; Ticknor, Nicole; Walker, Lindsay
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v44 n2 p393-396 Sum 2011
We used a multiple baseline design across participants to determine if teacher greetings would reduce the latency to task engagement. Three participants were identified by their respective teachers as having difficulty initiating task-appropriate engagement at the beginning of class. Latency was measured from teacher greeting until the participant was actively engaged for 5 consecutive seconds. Results showed that teacher greetings were effective at reducing latency to task engagement for all participants. (Contains 1 figure.)
