What Kounin say’s about himself?<br />He’s a classroom behaviorist theorist, who specialized in classroom behavior and discipline.<br />He was born in 1912 in Cleveland, Ohio<br />He based in his work to Glasser in classroom management.<br />He began as an educational psychologist at Wayne State University in 1946.<br />in 1970s he published two books. <br /> “Teachers and Children”<br />“Discipline and Group Management in Classrooms”.<br />
What Kounin say’s about himself?<br />He’s first observation to students behaviour was when he asked a student in his classroom to put something away, then he noticed that the whole students around him started focusing their attention. So the correction of one’s behaviour, lets the other students inappropriate behaviours.<br />Also according to his observations and studies he noticed that it has to be something that the teacher could do to prevent the misbehaviour of the students.<br />He believed that it has to be connection between management and teaching engage students, which need a good lesson movement.<br />Kounin worked to combine both discipline and learning in the classroom.<br />
With-it-ness<br />The teacher is aware of what is going on in all areas in the classroom. And have eye contact with the students.<br />“Eyes in the back of head”<br />The classroom’s physical arrangement benefits the teachers to see the all part of <br />the classroom easily.<br />
Over Lapping<br />Attending to two or more events at the same time.<br />Ex: If a student finished an assignment early, there is something else for them to do (reading a story). At the time the students finish the teacher can turn around the class and have a look to the students work <br />
Ripple Effect<br />Correct the behavior (Discipline) directed one student influences on the behavior of others.<br />
lets the lesson short so students don’t get bored.
It’s all about making the lesson easier and meaningful.
Sign the rules to the students.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Smoothness:-</li></ul>Smooth/easy transition between activities. it’s about the time that the teacher give the students chance to ask a question or have a comment concerning the lesson. This technique allows the teacher to know the students level of understanding the topic and who has a good question.<br />
<ul><li> Satiation:-</li></ul>Receiving over information of a topic, being satisfied and enough.<br />(too much-too long)<br />
Have Fun with The video !!!!<br />Kounin<br />CM<br />
Implementation<br />Address several situations at one time.<br />Keep all students actively involved to the tasks and activities.<br /> Provide interesting lesson plan that helps the students acquire information in different ways.<br />Able to attend more than one event at the same time.<br />Intervene before misbehaviours escalate. <br />
Implementation<br />Avoiding off task behaviour and boredom by interesting lessons.<br />Give the students chance to discuss and exchange their idea after finishing their tasks early.<br />Let the students be aware that they will be graded for their participation and contribute with the groups.<br />Designing short activities for the students that develop their skills so they don’t get bored. Ex: drawing, coloring.<br />
Activity<br />Positive<br />Negative<br /><ul><li>The teacher can apply smooth transitions and maintain momentum in the classroom.
All the students are aware that they are observed for their actions and behavior.
All students are accountable for their actions and education.
The teacher can Reduce students misbehavior if the plans are effective and enjoyable.
It’s difficult to address how to correct the students misbehavior while it occurs.
Some students will have difficulties at the beginning to understand the teachers style in teaching and managing the classroom.
Some students will feel uncomfortable or a bit controlled and watched in the classroom.</li></li></ul><li>Our Reflections<br />
