Behavior Analytic Approach
Although we sometimes use a cognitive or humanist learning approach, we focus mainly on using a behavioral analytic approach. 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. Our objectives are all detailed, measurable, and individualized. Using a behavioral analytic approach to teaching means that we take the role behavior analysis and implement it into education.
We use principles of interactive learning instead of passive learning, consistently measuring and evaluating educational outcomes, and developing - as well as validating - 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 strongly believe in using a systematic use of positive and corrective feedback.
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.
