Reinforcement is one of the most fundamental instructional practices that can be used to help students acquire new skills or increase desired behaviors. This interactive 6 hour training will help learners gain a greater understanding of basic reinforcement procedures as well as further explore misconceptions related to punishment and bribery.
This is the fourth of four Essential Training offered by the K-12 Behavior Support Specialists. Essential Trainings must be completed in sequence. After completion of ALL four Essential Trainings, participants are eligible to attend more advanced trainings on Instructional/Behavior Strategies and Programming to address moderate problem behaviors. Participants should bring a laptop, tablet, or other electronic device in order to participate in online activities as part of the training.
In order to increase preparedness for participation in future BX³ project initiatives, it is recommended that districts form teams that include an administrator, general education teacher and special educator that will attend the Essential Trainings. Participation in the 4 Essentials does not guarantee acceptance into the BX³ Initiative.
