Behavior expectation or rule to be taught: Be Responsible

Location for expectation:  Hallway                                                       

Rationale- tell why following the rule is important:  It is important to be responsible in the hallway for the safety of others and keeping our school clean.

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
 

 

Harry and Richard III notice paper on the floor in the hallway.  Harry picks up the paper and throws it in the recyclable bin. 

Harry hangs up his backpack and coat in his locker and closes the door.

Richard III hangs his backpack and coat in his locker and closes the door.

Richard III leaves the classroom to get something from his locker and returns quickly back to class. 

 

Harry and Richard III walk right by paper laying on the floor in the hallway.

 Harry throws his backpack and coat on the floor in front of  his locker without hanging it up and leaves his locker open.  When Olivia walks by, she trips on these items.

Richard III hangs his backpack and coat in his locker, but leaves it wide open.

Richard III leaves the classroom to get something from his locker and fools around with others in the hall.  Therefore missing part of the lesson.

 Provide opportunities to practice and build fluency:

  1. Set aside a few minutes each day to practice the rule.
  2. As the teacher models, have individual students demonstrate examples and non-examples of the rule (role play)
  3. Tell students about the consequences for following and not following the rules. (ex. Minor

Acknowledge expected behavior: 

The teacher can have students volunteer and model the above examples several times for the class
