Four Goals of Misbehavior - Dreikur's Four Goals of Misbehavior is a valuable tool for understanding a student's misbehavior. The beauty of this perspective is tht you can identify the goal of the child's misbehavior by looking at your own reaction.
If the child's behavior :
- annoys you, the goal is attention. *Ignore it.
- angers you, the goal is power. * Rely upon rules and consequences to remove yourself from the struggle.
- hurts you, the goal is revenge. * State your feelings and discuss mutual concerns.
- makes you despair, the goal is to display inadequacy. *Find a way to encourage and empower the child.
Here’s an example of a three-column cue card for COPS editing:
C (Capitalization) Did I capitalize the first word of
every sentence and all proper nouns?
O (Overall Did I look over my paper to make
Appearance) sure it is neat, easy to read, and does
not have any spacing or messy errors?
P (Punctuation) Did I use the correct end punctuation
for every sentence?
S (Spelling) Did I spell all the words correctly?
