Free Visual Support:The Wheel (PDF)
The Unexpected/Expected Regulation Strategy Wheel (aka “The Wheel”) is designed to be used with students who are conversational and who can think reflectively about their own behavior. This compact regulatory support, designed to support the use of conventional regulatory strategies, dovetails with concepts presented in Michelle Garcia Winner’s Thinking About YOU, Thinking About ME (2002). It is most appropriate for student’s who are very comfortable with Winner’s (2002) notion of unexpected and expected behaviors. Unexpected/unconventional regulatory strategies are written in on the red side of the wheel, while expected/conventional strategies are written in on the corresponding segments of the blue side of the wheel. A student should be an active participant in the identification of regulatory strategies included on the wheel and the construction of this support, as it is intended for independent use. The video tutorial describes the design, assembly, and use of the support.
