|A look at the field before kickoff and the stadium renovation.|
This intervention is best used for off task or non-participation behaviors.
What it is: A system of support that is designed so that students can receive feedback out their behavior throughout the school day. After each subject/period, teachers provide feedback of specific goals on a behavior report card. Progress is graphed and students are reinforced when criterion for that performance is met. Parents may be asked to sign the student's daily progress as a way to increase communication between home and school.
I tweaked this intervention slightly, and had a student rate himself on how he felt he was doing toward behavior goals. This was compared to ratings that I had given him. I wanted to give this particular student a voice. Here is an example of what his self-rating component of this system looked like.
|I added an extra line to write in goals as they came up for each individual hour, if there was something specific to work on during those classes.|
For the student I used the intervention with, having a voice was important. Before lunch we would talk about the ratings, see how if there were things that could be changed to make things better, and discuss how the day had gone so far. This was coupled with the game like system I shared a week or two ago, you can read more about that here.
