The Look Model

How does LOOK work?

Teachers involved in LOOK engage in a 4-phase process to address challenging behaviors.

  1. LOOK - "What do I see?" Teachers objectively observe what is happening in the classroom.
  2. ANALYZE - "When/Where is the behavior happening?" Teachers analyze the context in which challenging behaviors occur.
  3. PLAN "What can I do?" Using information from the analysis, teachers choose strategies to implement in the classroom.
  4. ACT - "How do I do it?" Consultants guide teachers to implement strategies effectively.

This process repeats itself throughout the year, and uses observation, video analysis, and consultant feedback to help teachers become better observers and meet the needs of children struggling to regulate their behavior, attention, and emotions.
