Aaron Tarnutzer currently serves the community of McFarland, Wisconsin, as the Associate Principal of Indian Mound Middle School.
Facing increasing numbers of discipline referrals, especially among special education, minority, and low socio-economic status students, Aaron played a key role in developing a unique approach to promoting a positive school culture and student social and emotional development called "SOLAR", or "Solution Oriented Learning, Accountability, and Restoration." After earning a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Cardinal Stritch University.
Aaron also serves as the the district administrator for PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) in McFarland and is a Non-violent Crisis Intervention Trainer.
Research shows that # of incidents of bullying tend to peak during middle school. As an Associate Principal of a middle school, why do you think this is true? You use the discipline model called SOLAR (solution oriented learning accountability, and restoration). Can you give us some examples of how apply this model to incidents of bullying behavior? It seems there is an often silent majority of youth who are bystanders to incidents where they know someone is doing something that is not right. How do you help these youth become allies?
Undermining Underdog could easily be called Stealth Students or Sneaky Kids. This session is abou those kids who undermine what's going on in the family or the classroom to get what they want. The best tool is discussed at the end and that is Positive Behavior Support: Here are some of the websites mentioned:
School-wide PBIS decreases office discipline referrals and increases test scores. It is not a canned program and can be implemented in any setting. It is currently in more than 14,000 schools across America.
Join Sprigeo Founder Joe Bruzzese for 15 minutes with Paul Herrick of DeForest Middle School in Wisconsin. While focusing on disproportionate discipline rates of special education, minority, and low socio-economic status students, Paul's passion manifested itself as the development of the culture model called "SOLAR", or "Solution Oriented Learning, Accountability, and Restoration". Serving as the district administrator for PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) in DeForest, Paul has pushed the boundaries of SOLAR to develop exciting new support systems for students, staff, and families.
Paul will discuss answers to the following questions:
Can you explain to listeners what the SOLAR model is? On your website, you talk about building a "Culture of CHARACTER". What does this mean, and why is it important? You've obviously got experience implementing SOLAR at a school level with positive results. Can parents use and apply the philosophies of SOLAR?
School-wide Positive Behavior Support (PBIS) is a framework for system change within the school and not a curriculum. Schools who implement PBIS typically see a decrease in office discipline referrals and students spend more time in class learning. This overview will give listeners some insight into the major components of universal PBIS.
This presentation focuses on rudeness in children and how to combat it. We don't fight rudeness with rudeness. This program is dedicated to how to keep your cool when a child is rude. One of the websites mentioned for school-wide PBIS is www.pbis.org - you can find out more information about how to teach appropriate behavior through this website.
This broadcast is about the ever increasing violent behaviors we are seeing with younger and younger children. While there are no simple solutions, the answer is always to come up with a function based plan; meaning do a functional behavior assessment to determine the root cause of the violence and then implement a plan based on that function. We have a new tool on our website to help you graph ABC (Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence) data http://tinyurl.com/newfbadatatool If you like what you see you can download the tool for free at www.behaviordoctor.org- click on the bottom of the home page where it says "functional behavior assessment" and click on the New FBA Data Tool from June of 2011. This new one makes the old one look like it's from the cave ages.
Also, my new book helps learners go through the entire process of a functional behavior assessment by implementing PBIS a tthe tertiary level. http://www.amazon.com/Positive-Behavior-Support-Tertiary-Level/dp/1412982014/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1309403503&sr=8-1
There are many pages you can reproduce to help you in your data collection.
In this program, Dr. Greene discusses the difference between a popular school intervention -- Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) -- and Collaborative Problem Solving. The biggest difference begins with your definition of the "function" of challenging behavior, and that definition has tremendous implications for how you go about trying to help.
