The Teaching Procedures are five teaching methods used by teachers to encourage and motivate youths to learn and acquire skills. The Teaching Procedures used include:
- Effective Praise used to strengthen and reward desired behaviors
- Teaching Interaction used to correct unwanted behaviors
- Planned Teaching used to teach new skills and help prevent problem behaviors from occurring
- Intensive Teaching used as an intervention strategy to help youth manage their anger
- Problem Solving used to help youth learn to solve their problems in positive ways
Our teachers genuinely care about the social, emotional and educational welfare of their students. Teachers take a unified stance on discipline as well as reward, making the students’ experience at James E. Davis School a consistent one. We focus on three behavioral core values: Respect, Responsibility and Productivity. We strive to make meaningful connections with students and encourage them to see the relationship between their choices, their consequences and their quality of life.
