Behavior expectation or rule to be taught: Be Respectful

Location for expectation:  Arrival/Dismissal

Rationale- It is important to be respectful in the arrival/dismissal zone because it is a shared space; respect others personal space and use your quiet voice.

Provide examples to help students better understand what is and what is not the expected behavior:

Examples of expected behavior. Choose examples of that best “fits” the general case of what the behavior expectation


Non examples of expected behavior that are:

·     More similar to examples of expected behavior rather than outrageous non-examples

·     Typical of what students do when they are not engaged in the expected behavior



Bob and Tom were waiting in line under the clock.  They were having a competition on who could be the loudest fire truck.  The sounds alarmed a teacher inside who came running out to see the problem.  Both Bob and Tom were embarrassed.

Tom was quietly reading a book on the bus.  Bob kept touching the back of Tom’s head.  Tom asked for Bob to stop several times, but he did not.  Tom got angry and started to push Bob.


Bob and Tom were waiting in line under the clock.  They were talking quietly about what they planned to do over the weekend.

 Tom was quietly reading a book on the bus.  Bob asked to sit in the space next to Tom.  He was curious about the book.


Provide opportunities to practice and build fluency:

During inappropriate behavior discussion, students will be asked to provide appropriate behaviors for respect.  Several students could be chosen to model appropriate behaviors.

Acknowledge expected behavior:

After practice session, teachers will offer verbal praise to students who demonstrate the expected behavior.
