IOSIE Presentation

  1. 1. The IOSIE Method of Classroom Management By Marie Louise Lawson, Library Media Specialist Satellite Independent School District
  2. 2. Overview  Theoretical Models – Behavioral – Psychodynamic – Environmental – Constructivist  The IOSIE Method defined  The Classroom Management Control Spectrum – Consequence Model – Group-Guidance Model – Individual-Guidance Model
  3. 3. Theoretical Models •As defined by Danforth and Boyle, four models of human behavior that are frequently used in case analysis  Behavioral – Student behavior is based on external variables – Students are given positive reinforcement for correcting their behavior  Psychodynamic – Student behavior is based on an emotional state or response – Students are encouraged to correct their behavior in a private meeting with the teacher  Environmental – Student environment influences their behavior – Simple changes in environment, such as where a student sits, may be implemented to correct their behavior  Constructivist – Individual students construct their own basis of knowledge, which alters as they experience new things – Students are asked to construct a response to their behavior and how they can correct it in the future
  4. 4. The IOSIE Method •Used to analyze problems with student behavior in five steps • Identify the problem • View the situation objectively • Determine the seriousness of the situation • Determine the objective you wish to achieve • Objectives should remedy the current problem and also provide a long-term improvement in student behavior • Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-oriented to be met in an established Time frame (SMART) • Propose a solution • Preventative and interventional: prevent or discourage behavior issues while dealing with misbehavior when it occurs • Implement the solution • Gain cooperation and support from parents/guardians, other staff and even professionals outside the classroom, if necessary • Teachers must be adaptive in the way they approach their problem • Evaluate the results • Return to your objectives: were your goals reached? • If misbehavior returns, perhaps the problem was wrongly identified and a broader objective spectrum is necessary
  5. 5. Classroom Management Control Spectrum  There are three approaches to resolving classroom behavior problems 4. Consequence • Teacher outlines consequences for improper behavior 5. Group-guidance • The class utilizes a specific framework for penalties for violation of classroom rules 6. Individual-guidance • Teacher meets privately with misbehaving student to reach cooperative resolution
  6. 6. The Consequence Approach  Displays the most teacher control of the three classroom management approaches  Example: Kounin Effective Momentum Model – Based on the work of Jacob Kounin – Teacher actions (ie praise or disciplinary remarks) influence all students, not just the ones toward which the action is directed – Keywords: with-it-ness, Ripple Effect  With-it-ness: Teachers have an instinctive feel for the activity in their classroom and can quickly identify behavioral problems – Teachers control the behavior of the students. Stopping lessons to deal with discipline issues adds to the problem  Strengths of this approach: – Teacher actions affect entire classroom – Several procedures for effectively stopping improper behavior  Weaknesses of this approach: – Limited to certain classroom sessions – Does not provide corrective measures to more serious problems
  7. 7. The Group-Guidance Approach  Displays moderate teacher control of the situation at hand, allowing students to develop group dynamics and learn proper behavior  Example: Peer Mediation Model – Developed by Schrumpf and Crawford on the thought that behavioral change should not be based on coercion – Nonjudgmental response by peer mediators including negotiation, reasoning and compromise – Teacher involvement limited to selecting and training student mediators and acting as monitors during the mediation process – Proactive toward specific problems and incidents  Strengths of this approach: – Teaches a positive process to conflict resolution – Clear direction for how the program should be taught and monitored  Weaknesses of this approach: – Time-consuming and heavily dependent on participation from teachers, administration and students
  8. 8. The Individual-Guidance Approach  Displays the least teacher control of the three approaches, drawing from a positive student-teacher relationship  Example: The Choice Theory and Reality Therapy Model – Developed by psychiatrist William Glasser – Basis in satisfying the five (5) basic psychological needs of every person:  Belonging & love, power & achievement, fun & enjoying work, freedom & ability to make choices, and survival – Disruptive behavior occurs when a student’s inner needs are not met – Classroom environment must create a sense of personal responsibility that emphasizes self-evaluation and interaction – Keywords: authoritarian teacher, teacher leader  Teacher leader: relies on cooperation, uses persuasion and creates enthusiasm in students  Authoritarian teacher: uses punishment and reward, relies on authority and creates confidence in students  Strengths of this approach: – Effective with most students, especially those with specific behavioral problems – Easy to implement, very straight-forward  Weaknesses of this approach: – Teachers are less comfortable with it; they feel as though students are allowed to “get away with” improper behavior and time is taken away from class work
