hi Mockingbird - I'm on the same thing I've created a table with each behaviour strategy and it's pros and cons.

I have included:
providing an alternative
tactical ignoring of negative behaviour
distraction and diversion
positive reinforcement
time out
modelling
rewards and incentives
boundary setting
reflection - the child
giving responsibility
warning systems - such as cards or traffic lights
hope this helps and good luck!
best wishes
Mrs Noah

Hi Mockingbird - this is what I have come up with so far - might help with ideas - mines still a work in progress - found chocolate more interesting!!

Providing an alternative ( not to be confused with a reward, e.g. if you
complete this task now, later on you can ...)

Pros:

Ensures set work is completed.
Avoids confrontation.
Sets out clear expectations.
Motivating.

Cons:
Other children may be jealous or misinterpret it as a reward and misbehave to gain similar treatment.
May cause more work in terms of providing alternative.


Tactical ignoring of negative behaviour
Pros:
Child learns that they will only receive attention for positive behaviour and adjust accordingly.

Cons:

Only works if negative behaviour is a result of attention seeking.
Very disruptive to teaching and environment.
Other children may try to copy behaviour.


Distraction

Pros:

Takes child’s mind off trigger for negative behaviour.
Provides a means of exhibiting positive behaviour and thus praise and rewards.

Cons:

Child may be resistant and therefore situation could escalate.
May require thought and planning.


Positive reinforcement

Pros:

Encourages children to repeat positive behaviours.
Gives children an incentive to behave in a positive way.
Is tangible and achievable to all.

Cons:

If used too frequently or not frequently enough can lose their incentive.
May not appeal/work for older children.
Dependent on timing – if you miss the positive behaviour the child may feel ignored.

Hi.. Well, i've now evaluated 4 different approaches and for each one i've put 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses.. I've also written about which one we use most in our setting and why i think it works (my assessor suggested this)

I'm not sure how many i need to evaluate, so thats another question for my assessor :-)

Thanks for your help tonight :-)
When are you hoping to finish your diploma ?

well - due to finish in February but would really like to complete it before Christmas so I can sit and watch rubbish movies and eat chocolate without worrying about how much I've got left to do. unfortunately I fell behind because I was a little poorly ah well maybe the dodgy Christmas movies will have to wait!!!
