Behavior Accountability Systems
Dr. Jennifer Snow
Teachers continue to strive for the most effective strategies to use in their own classroom management. With the variety of students in a class changing every year, teachers may find it necessary to continually modify their approach. The purpose of this study is to analyze the different approaches in the classroom regarding students’ accountability for their own behavior. Classroom management systems may include individual, small group, or whole group accountability or a combination of two or three different systems. Both teachers and students will be surveyed regarding their preference of systems and experience with each. The results from this study will help explain teachers’ approaches to using different accountability systems and the students’ response to these.
