PEP Strategy: Proximity, Eye Contact, Privacy

One strategy by Mendler that provides a low-key response to behaviour is the PEP Strategy: Proximity, Eye Contact, Privacy. This strategy enables teachers to blend corrective and appreciative messages; this helps to create a more positive classroom environment and help minimise power struggles.

When implementing the PEP strategy,  Mendler advises that teachers need to move in closely to the student (proximity), establish a connection (eye contact) and then to quietly affirm or correct behaviour (privacy).

This YouTube video demonstrates the PEP strategy.
