  8. 8. • Name: • Positivity Action Plan Amie Dean • 2007 • Where are you NOW? • Action Plan • • _____________________________________________________________________________ • • • 1 5 10 15 20 • Focus on • Negative • • • 1. Please think about the comments you make to your teachers. Let’s quantify this way: • • Ask yourself approximately how many positive contacts (verbal, written, or electronic) do I • have with my teachers in a 5 day period? #___________ • • If you are not sure where to place yourself on the continuum, use the following as a guideline • only: 20+ is extremely positive in 5 days, 10-14 very, 5-9 positive, 2-4 occasionally, 0-1 may • focus on negative • • • 2. What are some of the typical things you say to praise or compliment your staff and individual • teachers? Please list below. • • • • • • • 3. Do you have room for improvement? • • If so, please write a goal for how many positive comments you would like to make in daily or • half day increments. (Ex. I will go from making 3 positive contacts per week to 10 positive • contacts per week.) • • • MY GOAL:___________________________________________________________________ • • _____________________________________________________________________________. • • STEPS I will take to achieve this goal: Occasionally positive Positive Very positive Extremely positive
  9. 9. Behavior Strategies for secondary • Success Chain – explained in workshop – positive group contingency in which the class earns a paper link/letter/word towards an established goal/reward. Many variations can be used: Principal’s link, buddy link, academic link, visitor’s link, lunch-line link, etc…Once earned, links cannot be taken away. You may also have more than one chain going at once. Ex. Inside chain & outside chain for in-class versus outside activities. Once goal is reached – whole class reward. • • Correction Cards – Have laminated post it notes with common verbal statements made by teacher. Please Stop, Thank you for Listening, Thank you for not talking when I talk, etc. Hand out discreetly to deal with behavior. If you want to give a positive note, write it on a post it and let students keep it. Laminated notes should be returned at the end of class. • • Last In – Last Out – Tardy management. Place desk(s) close to the door. The last one in is the very last to leave. Reiterate this is a “choice” they have made.
  10. 10. • Team Time – 5 minutes every Friday. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Tell students they may only say “kind” things to each other during the 5 minutes. Put sentence starters on the board – Thank you for….I appreciate you for…… I’m proud of you……I noticed that…. I start it off by making a few of the statements myself. After a few weeks, you may notice them doing this unprompted! • Success Box/Bonus Box – used to reinforce positive behaviors, but also to minimize # of rewards given. If student complies with/reaches goal he/she puts name in a drawing box. Names can be drawn by period, daily, weekly, etc to earn reward. • Code System – Code “0” = Zero talking, Zero movement, Eyes on speaker; Code “1” – may only talk to teacher; Code “2” – may only talk with partner; Code “3” – may only talk with group.
  11. 11. • Neon Clipboard – (Disc. tracker) name on the clipboard = predetermined consequence. • Behavior Bracelets - (Great if you are on the move.) Use 3 colored stretchy key rings – remove one bracelet each time the “behavior to work on” is exhibited (blurt out, out of seat, etc.) The # of bracelets left is the number of points earned for that period. Predetermine the goal/# of points for reward. EX. 25 points = homework pass. • Yes Card – (use index card) 3-6will have 9 sections. Use a 3-10 minute interval depending on how often student disrupts. Increase time interval gradually. If at the end of specified time, student has not disrupted, you initial ONE “yes.” If the student has all “yes” initialed, reward is earned. • Recommended by Amie Dean Classroom Management Workshop At WCU
  12. 12. • • 100% Club – Set a goal and ALL students must comply. Ex. All arrived on time, completed homework, brought all materials, earned at least a ___ on quiz, no one interrupted the speaker, etc *Keep record of when goals are met. Chart the data & use to discuss what needs improvement. 10 pts can be earned each time toward 100 pts which = reward. • My Time/Your Time – Predetermine how many minutes you can spare at the end of the class (up to 5.) Put tally marks on the board at the beginning of class. Tell class each time they take “my” time (you have to stop to correct) they lose a minute of “your” time at the end. 5 minutes at the end of class could be talk time, homework time, choice time, etc.
  13. 13. • Apology Slip • Name:________________________________Date_____________Name of person harmed:___________________ • • This is what I did: • _____________________________________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________________________________. • • What I should have done was: • _____________________________________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________________________________. • • When I harmed___________________________, I think he/she felt ______________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________________________________. • • I would like to say:_____________________________________________________________________________. • • Signed:________________________________________ Signed:________________________________________ • (student completing the form) (teacher and/or parent) • • • • Better Choices Sheet • Name:______________________________________Date:_____________________Time:___________ • • My actions were as follows: (What I did) • ____________________________________________________________________________________ • ____________________________________________________________________________________ • ___________________________________________________________________________________. • • A better choice, which I will do next time is: • ____________________________________________________________________________________ • ____________________________________________________________________________________ • ___________________________________________________________________________________. • • Why I made the bad choice: • ____________________________________________________________________________________ • ___________________________________________________________________________________. • • To help myself, the next time something like this happens, I will _________________________________ • ___________________________________________________________________________________. • • Student Signature:_______________________________Teacher/Adult_________________________ Apology Slip/ Better Behavior
