Classroom management – function of behavior

A minimum of 350 words including references from: Shepard, T. & Linn, D. (2015). Behavior and classroom management in the multicultural classroom: Proactive, active, and reactive strategies. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage

The reading  illustrates the importance of designing behavior intervention plans based upon the functions of the target behaviors. Identifying these probable functions is done through analyses of the antecedents and consequences surrounding the target behaviors. You were introduced to the influences of culture and society on behavior and how these influences impact your behavior intervention designs. Finally, you were introduced to several function-based behavior intervention approaches used by behavior analysts to modify behavior.

With these basics of behavioral functions in mind, discuss the following:

1. The two broad categories of behavioral function, attainment and escape/avoidance, and the narrower behavioral motivations that fall under these broad categories. Provide an example of a behavior that serves an attainment function and a behavior that serves an escape/avoidance function.

2. Design a behavior modification approach that you could use to modify each of the behaviors you discussed in your examples. What reinforcers will you use?

3. Describe three antecedent-based modifications that can be made to the classroom environment that will prevent or reduce the occurrence of inappropriate behavior.
