      Kimberly Tufts
      Robert Tufts
    • Who we are…
      • Jeri Minford
      • 5 years teaching primary through high school all subjects
      • Has taught math/science, 6th & 7th grade, for the last 5 years
      • Levin Sudderth
      • 8 years teaching middle and high school
      • Has taught social studies, 7th and 8th grade, for the last 6 years
      • Robert Tufts
      • 20 years teaching middle school all subjects
      • Has taught NC science, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, for the last 14 years
      • Kimberly Tufts
      • 20 years teaching primary through high school all subjects
      • Has taught language arts, 7th and 8th grade, for the last 8 years
    • In The Beginning…
      • Behavior in the classroom and in the school was not as desired
      • There was inconsistency between teachers and grade levels
      • There was limited accountability for students
      • Discipline by itself does not change behavior
    • The History of the Wheel
      • New colleague brought the idea from her previous small, rural K-8 school
      • Created by Nancy Gryder
      • Physical wheel used clothespins and a laminated posterboard circle
      • Used with a cohort of students that traveled together to all classes
    • Rolling Out the Wheel at Cranberry
      • Templates were made and core teachers prepared their own wheels so that all content areas had a wheel
      • Clothespins were labeled with numbers one year, names the next
      • Choices cards evolved using Thinking Maps
    • Decisions Leading to My Choice
      Consequences of My Choice
      CHOICES CARD
      MY POOR CHOICE
      My plan for improvement:
      ________________________________________________________
      ________________________________________________________
      ________________________________________________________
      ________________________________________________________
      Teacher Signature: ________________________________________
    • Challenges of the Wheel
      • The wheel itself was cumbersome
      • Trips to the wheel could be distracting
      • Classes did not travel in cohort groups
      • Encore teachers were left “out of the loop”
    • The Idea
      • A Spreadsheet for All
      • The “Google” Light Bulb
      • Privacy Issues Resolved
    • The Product
      • Grade Levels
      • Points
      • Editing & Viewing
      • Moving Backwards
    • Maintenance
      • Daily
      • Weekly
      • End of Quarter
    • Differentiation
      • How grades use their points
      • Showing of Choice Card totals and ISS served
    • Challenges We Face Today
      • Student behavior cannot be displayed at all times
      • Students no longer “interact” with the system
      • System must be manually reset & updated each day
      • School Tech Support is working with us on this
    • In Closing:
      • It is not perfect, but it is better than before and it is getting better all the time.
      • It can be adapted for all school types and sizes.
    • Our Hopes for the Future:
      • Direct student manipulation of the wheel
      • Displayed in the classroom constantly
      • Better student data tracking
      • Better integration with technology (ie. SMARTboard, Tablet or Ipad)
