Demonstrating the Experimenting Society Model With Classwide Behavior Management Interventions
Taya C. Johnson, Gary Stoner, Susan K. Green
Abstract: This research demonstrates the experimenting society model using data-based decision making and collaborative consultation to generate and evaluate three class wide behavior management intervention strategies. The work sought to increase rates of desired behaviors and decrease rates of undesired behaviors in a 25-member seventh grade class. Three different interventions were implemented concurrently in three different classrooms. Using concurrent A-B time-series research designs, and systematic classroom observation, each intervention was compared with baseline conditions, and outcome data across classrooms were compared. Although each intervention resulted in improved behavior, active teaching of the classroom rules was determined to be the most effective intervention. It was replicated in three other classrooms with positive results.
