Things That Make You Go Hmm…

In Ed Media Apps, we are learning about PBIS.

PBIS is an acronym for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. PBIS helps students reach social, emotional, and academic success.

According to , there are three major outcomes of PBIS:

  • Systems
  • Data
  • Practices

Why should teachers care? As teachers we want our students to model good behavior. Teaching students good behavior is one step in the right direction, but the teacher actually molding the good behavior and the students will pick up on good behavior even faster. You want students to learn good behavior in elementary because the good or bad behavior will stick with students all the way through middle and high school. Good behavior habits will help students later in life and in the “real world”.

Some questions I have about PBIS are:

  • Is PBIS making a difference?
  • How does PBIS differ between young students, middle school students, and high school students?
  • What kind of an impact does PBIS have?
