My district was recently approached with a possible opportunity of bringing the PAX Good Behavior Game into our elementary settings.  This is a new model for us and we are trying to learn as much about it as possible.  I'm interested to hear from others who are using it or who have chosen not to utilize the approach.  What are the strengths and of the program?  What successes have you seen?  Is it an equitable approach?  How does it promote resiliency for students who have encountered multiple adversities?

I'd love to hear anything you'd like to share!  Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

I've seen it introduced in a number of schools. I think that when practiced with fidelity it is equitable. I also think it can help promote some very good school skills. However it has also been my experience that educators rarely get the support that they need to continue doing it with fidelity. I encourage teachers to start slowly, and get support from the consultant as long as possible.

I don't know about how it promotes resiliency. From my experience, it's mostly focused on teaching children to behave the way the majority culture wants them to behave (sit still, be compliant, speak when called upon).

I'm interested in hearing about your roll out!

Take care,
Martha
