Using Response Cards as a Class-Wide Intervention to Decrease Challenging Behavior
Duchaine, Ellen L.; Green, Katherine B.; Jolivette, Kristine
Beyond Behavior, v20 n1 p3-10 Fall 2011
Studies indicate that challenging behavior and low achievement are cyclical, so the most effective way to improve classroom behavior is to increase student participation and strengthen academic achievement. Implementing specific strategies will help eliminate challenging behaviors occurring on a daily basis. One strategy that may be implemented to increase student participation in academic activities in any grade-level classroom with any population is response cards. The benefits of response cards extend beyond increased participation and the reduction of disruptions. An especially powerful benefit of using response cards is the anonymity of the responses. Response cards provide a safer environment for engaging all students. In this article, the authors discuss how to use response cards as a class-wide intervention to decrease challenging behavior.
