What Is Self-Management?
• Pay attention to their own behavior
• Use appropriate play and social interaction skills
• Participate in classroom routines
• Engage in instructional activities
The idea is all students need to learn how to manage their own behavior, so can teachers spend more time teaching and less time dealing with occurrences of challenging behavior. To do this a teacher/psychologist need to target behavior(s) of the student that hinder the student's ability to learn and have positive class interactions. Once these behaviors are targeted a teacher or school psychology can then help the student self manage these behaviors.
The U.M.B and My Self Monitoring Sheet provides a way for a student to monitor their own behavior. Plus, it is a great communication tool between the classroom and a students home.
