Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study


David is a five year old boy who from the very beginning displayed disruptive behavior inside and outside of the classroom. His teacher has logged his behavior, asked her administrators for support, and has referred the child for a behavioral evaluation. During this time the teacher spoke with the child’s parents who stated that his behavior was similar at home. They also shared that the majority of his disruptive behavior seemed to be his way of seeking attention. During this time David’s behavior was growing more and more disturbing and aggressive. Based on the teachers observation logs, David had difficulty getting along with other children and consistently did not follow directions. On any given day, David hits, yells, or knocks things out of peer’s hands to gain the teachers attention or get something he wants. During some part of the day David is physically aggressive toward one or two peers, this usually includes kicking or punching. Most of the children have learned to ignore him or stay away from him. When it comes to his academic skills he is at level. Although David has the skills to complete assignments or activities he is rarely unable to do so. Most of the issues begin when directions are given and when peers are working. The behaviors escalate when he is redirected.
As the disruptive behavior continues the teacher begins to run out of patience with David and begins to call attention to every negative action that is displayed. This begins to have a negative impact on the behavior of other students. Some students begin to follow David’s lead and others are not completing assignments. This is the result of the teacher spending too much time dealing with David and not enough time with instruction. There are many ways the teacher can professionally and successfully handle disruptive behaviors. One way…...

Appropriate Behavior Expectations Case Study

...Appropriate Behavior Expectations Case Study Natalie A. Smith ECE 201 Debra Lawrence November 4, 2012 I know that some teachers have different expectations for their students. One expectation is to follow directions. When a teacher tells a student to have a seat or get in line, it is expected for them to do what they are told. Teachers should never place difficult expectation on younger children. You can’t expect children who are 7 or 8 to understand like children who are in their teens. Another expectation would be to use your inside voice or remain quiet when a lesson is being taught. Respect others is also an expectation. At any age learning to respect others and be friendly is important. The basic skills that every child should learn are to follow basic instructions. This is within the critical age that child are trying to figure out who they are. Teachers will have to help guide them and be there if they need help because in some cases the child will trust the teacher more than their own parent. I believe that Ron’s behavior has a lot to do with a new environment. Anytime there is a new environment children will explore and see what they can and cannot do. He was around new children that he didn’t know and he was trying to stand out. He is doing what most children do when they go to another school or has a substitute for the day; they see what they can and cannot get away with. There may be an underlying cause such as ADHD. The fact that he...

...Arizona Statehood and Constitution "I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend It against all enemies." Tyler, W (1918) -- The American's Creed. The Spanish Period, Arizona is the youngest of all the states, and the last of the 48 states to be admitted to the Statehood in 1912. Arizona’s history goes back hundreds of years. In 1535, the Spanish explorer Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, with three companions, found their way to Arizona; where Cabeza de Vaca was perhaps the first European explorer to enter Arizona territory. Arizona history states that, “His report led to further explorations of the region. The Spaniards heard stories about the great wealth of the Seven Cities of Cibola. They grew eager to find this treasure”. In the 1600s Antonio de Espejo and Juan de Onate found minerals that would make Arizona rich and increase Spanish interest in the territory. In 1752 the Spanish established the first white settlement. The Arizona history states that “the...

Consumer Behavior Case Study

... imported beef. From the analysis above, it can be found that national protection consciousness and price play an important role in consumer behavior in South Korea, which is different from Australia. For an Australia exporter, potential marketing opportunity lies in supply for general restaurants. Imported wine takes up almost three fourths of wine market in South Korea. Australian wine imports ranks fifth, after France, Chile, America and Italy. In order to seize potential marketing opportunity, Australia exporters should keep high quality. Moreover, free trade agreement would also enhance Australian wine imports effectively (Yoo et al. 2013). Consumer behavior towards imported wine and grape from Australia shares a lot of similarities. After opening up market in 1987, South Korea has become one of the fastest-growing countries of wine consumption in Asia. More and more people begin to enjoy the high quality wine and the consumption keeps rising (Yoo et al. 2013). In South Korea, people drink wine for fun rather than just boozing. Some people are even eager to read related books and join online activities on a monthly basis. It could be said that drinking wine has become a common social method. From this point of view, the consumergroup of wine is not only upper class, but also working class and lower class. Owing to unique good land and a lot of world-class outstanding winemakers, together with the world’s most strict management and production process, Australian......

... competition again and they started pushing their old customers to the new product. In spite of higher prices the customers still went to the new product but after the change customer ratings fell. Of the different wireless broadband offered Profitel had the worst ratings when it came to value. This could be due to Lars wanting the company to make the most money in regards to the profit margin. It seems as though he had the “quantity over quality” idea meaning they focused on the number of customers versus the quality of the product. In addition to the customer ratings negatively impacting the company employee morale began to suffer, layoffs started to occur and the company started to get a bad public image. A lot of these changes occurred due employees not wanting to associate themselves with the company anymore. What companies can do to minimize the leadership problems identified in this case is for one, do extensive backgrounds check on the candidate applying for the CEO position at a company. His/her resume can look great and they may do a great job in the face to face interview but companies need to dig a little deeper. They need to research the person to see if there is anything on the internet or newspapers that can link to the candidate. The company could have also developed some type of “Leadership substitute” which is “A theory identifying contingencies that either limit a leaders ability to influence subordinates or make a particular leadership style unnecessary...

...1. List the fact. The boss, Mr. Hamid, owner of ESD, who was over 50 years old and an immigrant from Iran. He has experience on his work for so many years, and he founded the company ESD and the company became bigger after several years. ESD is a property management firm. The boss needed Shauna to transfer some accounting information into a new computer program. This job would take about two months. Shauna was a young student who got a part-tome job in ESD as a bookkeeper, and had worked several times before. The Boss often asked Shauna to work without saying thank you or please, but still sometimes praises her on her works. She thought she had present well on her job. Shauna didn’t notice Mr. Hamid that she might be absent on Monday to company with her family when her dad was sent to the hospital. Shauna just “informed” her boss what happened to her father. She didn’t ask Mr. Hamid permission or left any evidence to prove that Mr. Hamid agreed with her request. Mr. Hamid fired Shauna after the day she absent. The boss thought that Shauna didn’t ask for his permission and just left to hospital, he considered as she was irresponsible. Shauna confronted her boss when she was picking up her belonings. After some arguing the boss became angry and he yelled at Shauna to leave his office. 2. Make inferences about the facts.

...Changing Behavior Case Study Analysis 2 Changing Behavior Case Study Analysis My new client, Ms. Asher suffers from chronic tardiness. She states she’s not quite sure how long this has been going on but realized it was becoming a problem about two years ago. She explains she’s constantly late for work, appointments, family events, and even picking up and dropping her kids off to school. Ms. Asher says she would like to rid of this problem because it is causing problems. Her lateness has resulted in being reprimanded at work, criticized by her children’s school, and having to reschedule appointments. At times she states she can be 15 to 30 minutes late for anything. When it comes to family events, she could be even later than that. Classical conditioning could explain how Ms. Asher developed this condition. In classical conditioning there must be a stimulus that causes someone to respond in a specific way, we call this an unconditioned stimulus or US. The response to the US is called an unconditioned response or UR. I asker Ms. Asher to tell me a little about the last few years of her life when she thinks the chronic lateness may have started. She tells me about a previous job she had. She left this job about 2 years ago due to some complications with her employer and the lack of team work in the office. She really wanted to be at home with her children. She was...

To Study Information Life Cycle Management.

...EXPERIMENT NO: 1 AIM: To study Information Life Cycle Management. THEORY: INFORMATION LIFECYCLE: The information lifecycle is the “change in the value of information” over time. When data is first created, it often has the highest value and is used frequently. As data ages, it is accessed less frequently and is of less value to the organization. Understanding the information lifecycle helps to deploy appropriate storage infrastructure, according to the changing value of information. For example, in a sales order application, the value of the information changes from the time the order is placed until the time that the warranty becomes void (see Figure 1-7). The value of the information is highest when a company receives a new sales order and processes it to deliver the product. After order fulfillment, the customer or order data need not be available for real-time access. The company can transfer this data to less expensive secondary storage with lower accessibility and availability requirements unless or until a warranty claim or another event triggers its need. After the warranty becomes void, the company can archive or dispose of data to create space for other high-value information. Information Lifecycle Management Today’s business requires data to be protected and available 24 × 7. Data centers can accomplish this with the optimal and appropriate use of storage infrastructure. An effective information management policy is required to...

Mental/Behavior Case Study

...Mental/Behavioral Case Study HCS/245 April 27, 2015 Mental/Behavioral Case Study Jim Wolfe is a 45 year old owner of an auto parts store. He is constantly washing his hands, rechecking his parts list, equipment, and employee schedules. His wife raises concerns about his work performance and his inability to sleep and convinces him to see his physician. He gets a referral to see a psychiatrist and is diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears that lead a person into repetitive behaviors. It has two parts: obsessive and compulsive. The obsessive portion relates to a person’s repetitive thoughts and emotions. The compulsive part concerns the person’s inability to resist the repetitive actions. Trying to ignore or stop these thoughts only create more anxiety and stress. (Neighbors, 2015, Chapter 21). Based on the onset of the disease and the symptoms that Jim is displaying, he should receive a primary level of care. Treating OCD early can reduce the symptoms and the disruption that this disease can cause in daily life. Treatment for OCD consists of medications and behavior therapy. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, the doctor may only prescribe counseling. Medications such as anti-depressants or tricyclic anti-depressants help to relieve obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors and help balance brain chemicals (National Institute of Mental Health, n.d...

Emergency Management Case Study

...Emergency Management Case-Study The City Manager of Marshall, Florida has expressed concerns over two issues that he believes are directly related to the City’s post storm and tornado recovery. He has presented some statistics regarding spikes in crime after each critical incident and during the recovery period after storms. He has also provided some empirical information pertaining to a noticeable increase in reported injuries to hospitals. He noted that the injuries were not necessarily the result of the storms themselves, but injuries that occurred during the assessment and recovery period. The City Manager proposes a multi-agency/all-hazards approach to addressing this problem. The goal of this case study is to evaluate that philosophy for its potential implementation. There are several issues that require careful inspection in order to develop a comprehensive plan that would successfully solve the dilemma posed by the City Manager. Issues regarding logistics, operational planning, training, policies and procedures, and legal restraints, are just a few areas that may instigate contention. In addition, there are cost and budget concerns to consider when developing a solution to the problem. The City of Marshall, like many other municipalities around the country, has budgetary and staffing problems. The Fire and Police departments are inadequately staffed compared to other similar sized cities around the country, which becomes painfully apparent during responses...

Our Employee attitude task force has worked diligently and precisely to determine where the Pluto Candy Company stands in terms of achieving a satisfied and committed workforce. Our results and analysis are based off the Employee Attitude Survey and can be found below. Please feel free to contact any member of our Employee Attitudes Task Force for further questions or clarifications. Question 1: One question I’d like your team to consider is whether we should care about employees’ attitudes. Although a satisfied workforce is one of our strategic goals, we need to be sure, before we contemplate specific actions, that such actions are warranted. In order to determine whether we should care about employees’ attitudes, our group conducted a correlation between overall job satisfaction and average performance. We found that there was a statistically significant correlation of 0.359 between the two. Therefore, it is important that Pluto Candy Company should care about its employees’ attitudes.

Changing Behavior Case Study Analysis

... customers. Customers heard either the normal sales presentation or one that was more vivid and personal. In the latter case, people were asked to conjure up images of themselves watching a broader range of entertainment in their living rooms. The study found that people who heard the more personal and vivid appeals were more likely to install the cable TV (Yates and Aronson, 1983). Tell them how to do the behavior you want them to do. One study of recyclers and non-recyclers found similar attitudes but their level of knowledge of how to recycle was significantly different (DeYoung, 1988-89). Participants in another study whose attitudes had been changed toward better dental hygiene actually improved their dental practices only if also trained in the specific use of dental floss (Weigel and Amsterdam, 1976). Clear, specific, concrete information is remembered best. Research found that vague messages about the importance of energy conservation (such as “don’t be fuelish”) are much less effective than specific recommendations about how to modify current behaviors or than indices, such as the miles-per-gallon rating, that enable consumers to compare the energy use of different cars or appliances (Ester and Winett, 1982). For example, imagine a 10-second TV announcement at 11 p.m. that depicts a lovely rural scene with a voiceover that says, “To preserve our environment, we must conserve energy.” A better design would be an announcement at 11 p.m. that shows a person setting......

...Tiangco, Noel Christian B. OM3A- Org Mgt. Employee Empowerment: A Walt Disney Company Case Study Employee empowerment refers to the development of a person's confidence as well as abilities in a business setting. Companies utilize employee empowerment to create strong operating partnerships with personnel and enlighten them various business practices. Common attributes of employee empowerment include instructing employees to understand and feel good about themselves, showing them how to relate to other employees and customers, and offering resources for training and increasing an employee business understanding. The Walt Disney Company is an organization commonly utilized as an example for the use of employee empowerment strategies with their associates. The Walt Disney Company has actually invested copious amounts of time and work in creating a strong organizational society to teach their workers on the Disney Company’s mission and values. According to Disney's corporate website, one of the five crucial characteristics of working for Walt Disney is the passion as well as devotion from actors and staff. Disney, in some cases, describes their workers as cast members in an attempt to break the regular boundaries of the manager/employee relationship.
