Behavior Analytic Approach
One approach is a "behavioral analytic" approach to education. By using a behavioral analytic approach to our teaching, we always assess our students based on the learner’s entry skills and are able to clearly specify and behaviorally state instructional objectives. For our students who have individualized academic learning plans, we make sure that our objectives are all detailed, measurable, and individualized. Using a behavioral analytic approach to teaching means that we take the methodologies and strategies of behavior analysis and implement it into education.
We use principles of interactive learning, consistently measure and evaluate educational outcomes, and develop - as well as validate - an effective technology or instruction design and delivery as our teaching method. Additionally, we use a variety of well-designed curricular materials to create highly structured, fast paced, and active engagement learning. We also strongly believe in a systematic use of positive and corrective feedback to help students gain greater confidence in themselves and their academic success.
Why do we create measurable and behaviorally stated objectives?
At Kidz Solutions, it is very important to us that our students are constantly motivated and know what we are doing and why we are doing it. We write behaviorally stated instructional objectives for three reasons.
This assists us and the tutor through the specified instructional content for the student.
We constantly communicate with our students on what they are learning and what we are teaching.
We are able to specify what standards we are working on and allow us to continuously evaluate progress in specific areas as well as performance.
