Linking Literacy with Social-Emotional & Behavioral Development - SAHS: Room# 302
Limited Capacity seats available

Social-emotional development occurs on a parallel path with early literacy development. Early childhood educators know that literacy opportunities that arise naturally in both the home and school environment not only develop listening skills, oral language, and reading and writing skills, but also foster the development of social-emotional growth. That is, as children experience and master more complex forms of language and literacy, they are more likely to build more complex and sophisticated communication skills in order to articulate themselves. Such students are more likely to engage in positive peer and adult interactions and behaviors in school, and in turn, are more likely to remain more engaged in their academics. Studies have shown that students who have mastered such early literacy skills, and continue to fine tune such skills, are significantly more likely to perform higher academically and engage in positive social-emotional and behavioral self-regulation skills. In this presentation, we will further examine how early literacy development and social-emotional development are interrelated. In addition, we will describe specific and effective literacy-based strategies and activities that both early childhood educators and school-based mental health practitioners can both use in the classroom and suggest to families so they can support their young student’s social-emotional and behavioral skills at home.

While our focus on rigorous academic instruction is vastly important, developing and supporting appropriate behaviors cannot be forgotten.  Shifting our thinking from "behavior management" to "behavior instruction" is a great first step to begin to address all of the new issues that are arising.  Classroom management is about far more than just a few rules and consequences.  Come discover how to set up your classroom for behavioral success!

The Good Behavior Game: Evidence-based Behavior Management During Literacy Block - SAHS: Room# 214
Limited Capacity filling up

This session will introduce the evidence base for the Good Behavior Game (GBG) and its utility for managing classroom behavior during the literacy block. Classroom management along with engaging material are crucial when introducing and practicing skills in school. Over 40 years of research indicate that the GBG is effective in reducing disruptive behavior across grade levels, subjects, and student academic ability (Barrish, Saunders, & Wolf, 1969; Kellum et al., 2011). The GBG is implemented class-wide, however can also be used to address the behavior of one or more target students. A brief review of research literature will begin the session. Participants will then learn how to conduct the GBG in their classrooms with a demonstration; collect data for students needing targeted intervention; and plan for fidelity and fading the intervention as needed. Participants will also be provided handouts necessary for the GBG. At the end of the session, attendees will have the knowledge and materials for setting up a class-wide behavior management intervention that will fit well alongside any literacy lesson.
