How to Motivate Student Behavior through Proactive Strategies

Stop student misbehavior before it happens: Be Proactive.

If you encounter belligerent students, ones that brazenly defy your authority and cause havoc in your classroom, you might be in desperate need to find a solution to this problem before it undermines your authority as teacher.

You must be careful how you proceed with student behavior because school policies and state education laws forbid you as teacher to stridently accost a student by forcing compliance upon her.

In fact, according to many school policies on restraint of students, students must not endure physical force unless such a restraint is necessary to protect students and others.

Belligerent students can become verbally defiant and apathetic about assignments, and they will challenge you as teacher to motivate them otherwise; you must apply classroom management techniques to thwart students’ misbehavior.

An effective way you may manage your students’ attitudes is to be proactive. You must have a plan and reinforce it from the beginning to the end of class time.

Below are strategies to help manifest students’ good behavior and motivate them to quell their bad habits to focus on their classwork instead.

I'm an innovative spirit, one who seeks new and practical ways to learn about life. I enjoy exploring innovative styles to motivate people to persevere in a challenging world. Having a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction, I am inspired to maintain a life long learning experience that will allow me to share my knowledge with others. My expertise includes detecting apathy in individuals and prescribing ways to motivate them to be their best. To initiate this endeavor, I create and conduct personal and professional development programs. I write briefs and pamphlets and instructional guides to inspire, and I speak--upon request--to those who need a reminder of their inner excellence. My blog's main focus is to document my research on motivation and curriculum instruction and to share with subscribers the understanding, the ideas, and the strategies that result from my research. I am a native of Alabama, a teacher, and an author. I look forward to learning with you.
