“Sure I Will”<br />Tell students that they will be playing a new game during class time, in addition to covering the content of class.<br />Create teams within the classroom and have them create their own positive “Sure I Will” response.<br />Every time a team member uses their “Sure I Will” response to a request made by the teacher, their team will get a tally mark. <br />Whoever gets closest to the “Mystery Number” gets the “Mystery Prize” for the week.<br />
“Sure I Will” cont’d:<br />Be precise and polite in your request(precision request).<br />Begin with giving a point each time it happens, then only reward genuine responsea.<br />Reduce tally marks gradually by issuing tally marks every five times their “Sure I Will” statement is made. <br />

Online Resource: The Beeper System<br />What it is:<br /><ul><li>Catch them being good!
Create an auditory cue to signal you to look around the room and praise the desired behavior intermittently. (Name the behavior)
If a student is misbehaving at the time of the beeper only direct your attention to desired behavior.
Reduce the frequency of the beeper as time progresses.</li></ul>Pros: <br />Continuous reminder to look for good behavior. <br />Focuses on the positive.<br />Immediate Feedback.<br />Cons: No variability of rewards.<br />I would give this one article a 3 – it addresses compliance training in the short run. Over time, students are not going to value the praise alone. (From the Teacher Vision website).<br />
