Ross Greene’s model of collaborative and proactive solutions is used to support students’ ability to assess their behavior as it relates to situational awareness. The basic premise of this technique is, “Kids do well if they can.” Observe and note a child’s behavior by saying, “I noticed_________,” and then to ask, “What’s up with that?” If the individual can state his/her thoughts on the behavior a discussion begins to map out the behavior, how it made others feel, and how the individual feels. If the individual cannot state a thought or feeling provide a choice of 2 possibilities. These discussions become points of reference for future collaboration and proactive solutions (more positive decision-making).
