Behavior Expectation Lesson Plan
Created by Ben & Nathan in April 11
Teach – September 15, 2011
Gretchen & Gina


Behavior expectation or rule to be taught: Be Respectful

Location for expectation:  Special Events, Assemblies, Field Trips, Extra-Curricular, Bus, Gym, Cafetorium, and Media Center

Rationale- tell why following the rule is important:: It   is important to be respectful with your peers and adults in school.  It is important to be respectful to the presenter and to let others be able to listen to the presentation.

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 Bill are sitting quietly, listening, and watching the speaker.  

Bob and Bill are sitting in the bleachers or floor listening to the speaker.  They keep their hands to themselves and listen quietly. 

Bill and Bob walk in line quietly with their class and sit where their teacher directs them.

Bill and Bob get in line with the teacher’s signal and they stay in line and walk with their class out of the assembly.

Bill and Bob have questions about the presentation.  They wait until the presenter asks if any one has any questions.  Bill and Bob raise their hand and wait to be called on.  They ask a question that relates to the presentation.


Bob and Bill are talking to each other.  Bob is talking so Bill can’t hear the speaker.  

Bob and Bill are moving around the bleachers or floor.  Bob goes in front of Bill and he can not see.

Bill and Bob walk in talking very loudly with their class and sit in the wrong spot.

Bill and Bob get in line and Bob goes and talks to Joe.  Then Bill yells at Bob because he cut in line.

Bill and Bob have questions about the presentation.  They blurt out their questions while the presenter is talking.  Bill and Bob do not raise their hand, but instead they start telling a story that happened to them.

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. Lose privileges)

Acknowledge expected behavior:

To show examples of proper behavior two teachers could model appropriate behavior.  Afterwards students can identify appropriate behavior.  Lastly the teacher would have students volunteer model appropriate behavior for class.  This could be done several times.
