This blog is for educators using the metacognitive framework - "nothing less than an internal dialogue with oneself. It is the process of bringing past experiences to a conscious level, analyzing them, and determining better ways to think and behave in the future" Roland Barth. I will be continuing to post SEL information on this website because metacognition is the basis for SEL.

Mich. school focuses on behavior to improve the learning environment - Courtesy of ASCD SmartBrief - Here is an article on a program that focuses on positive behaviors - hopefully leading to habituating positive behaviors over time.
Beginning this year, a Michigan elementary school will pilot the
positive behavioral interventions and supports system, which teaches
behavioral expectations to cultivate a positive learning environment for
students. Rockford Public Schools Superintendent Mike Shibler says he
expects PBIS to complement the response-to-intervention system already
in place in the district. The school joins about 790 other schools using
PBIS in Michigan, and 16,000 nationwide.
