The Greene County ESC’s Nationally Trained PAX GBG™ Partners support teacher’s implementation of PAX Good Behavior Game™ through in-classroom modeling, coaching, data collection & analysis. PAX Partners work with teachers and administrators to integrate PAX into existing PBIS strategies and programing. Integration brings the PBIS philosophy to life in the everyday activities and interventions teachers use throughout their teaching day. This helps teachers grow nurturing classroom environments, foster social-emotional health and dramatically improve students’ attention and focus to academic tasks.
The PAX Good Behavior Game™ (PAX GBG) teaches students self-regulation, self-control and self-management while collaborating with others for peace, productivity, health & happiness.
PAX GBG™ is an environmental intervention used in the classroom with children to create an environment that is conducive to learning. PAX GBG™ nurtures self-regulation in peer-contexts in order to improve attention and reduce impulsivity, thus wiring the brain during any school activity for long-term gain. PAX GBG™ is designed to reduce off-task behavior; increase attentiveness; and decrease aggressive and disruptive behavior and shy and withdrawn behavior. The intervention has been shown to improve academic success, as well as mental health and substance use outcomes later in life.
