PBIS Lesson Plans Matrix Location: Hallway Core Value: Safety First Behavior Expectations: Travel on the right side of the hallway. Objective: Students will show being safe by traveling on the right side of the hallway. Lesson Define the expectation I can be a STAR in the hallway when walking down the hallway stay on the right hand side. Why is it important (rationale) We need keep to the right side so that there is room for others to walk down the hall without running into people. Examples (What does it look like/What does it sound like) Walking on the far right side of the hallway. Non-Examples Running. Walking on the left side. Walking in the middle. Teaching Activity Use demonstration, modeling, role playing, video modeling and explain as appropriate. Give examples of what it is and what it is not. -Thumbs up/thumbs down smiley face/ frown popsicle sticks! - sort pictures of correct/incorrect -magazines appropriate inappropriate -switch activation of pictures/ “that’s a STAR” Follow up Activities: Have students demonstrate the behaviors and give them opportunities to practice. “Catch a Star” record your students in the act, have other students record each other! Sort pictures on matrix Sample Lesson Plan SYSTEMS FOR POSITIVE ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND REINFORCEMENT • Appropriately acknowledging and rewarding the positive behavior of students is among the most effective ways to decrease problematic behavior and is essential to strengthening the repeated display of positive behavior in the school setting. Information included in this section of the manual offers general guidelines for acknowledging and rewarding positive behavior and provides an overview of Ed. Tech’s All STAR reward system. • Reinforcing positive behavior is most effective when acknowledgement and reward is: Meaningful, Immediate, Frequent, Systemic Principles for Rewarding Positive Behavior • STAR Bucks • Shooting STAR of the Day • • • • • Trimester Awards STARs of the Week All STAR Wall of Fame All STARs of the Month STAR Staff of the Month All STAR Acknowledgement Systems STAR Bucks & Shooting STAR of the Day Trimester Awards Congratulations to our 1st Trimester Winners: The WISH Classroom!!

When giving effective warnings and consequences for problematic behavior, the following things should be considered: • Meaningful: Students must have a clear understanding of why (i.e. for what specific behavior/expectation) they are receiving a specific warning or consequence • Immediate: Warning and consequences that immediately follow a problematic behavior are most effective • Consistent: Warning and consequences that are consistently delivered in response to problematic behavior are most effective • Systemic: Having a well-defined system for delivering warnings/consequences in response to problem behavior promotes consistency within large group (i.e. classrooms) Principles for Responding to Problematic Behavior • Each classroom will display a visual behavior tracking system that includes each individual student in the classroom. The system may be modified to meet the needs of students and to meet teacher preference. Each classroom system must meet the following requirements. Staff may add to the system however they see fit. Green, Yellow, Red • Green: If the student continues to make good choices and follows the All STAR behavioral expectations, his/her name or picture will stay on green/happy face/Yes. Green represents the appropriate behavior, and all students begin their day in this color. • Yellow: If the student makes a poor choice or is not following the All STAR behavioral expectations, his/her name or picture will be moved to yellow and the student should be reminded of the appropriate behavioral expectations. The “move” may be staff or student initiated as appropriate. • Red: If the student makes a second poor choice or is not following the All STAR behavioral expectations, his/her name will be moved to red and should have a conference with staff to discuss further decisions. • If a student is in yellow or red at any part of the school day, he/she should be allowed to work their way back into the yellow and then into the green. This may be accomplished in various ways to accommodate individual students (i.e. demonstrating All STAR expectations, compliance task, participation, etc.) • If a student has ended the day in yellow or red, it should not carry over to the next school day. Each day begins with a positive indicator. • Note that within each classroom’s system, individualized plans may be implemented for students with a Tier II or Tier III behavior support plan. DATA-BASED DECISION MAKING Why?? O To monitor effectiveness of PBIS systems O To identify students in need of additional support How?? O Pre/Post Self-Assessments O Positive Indicator: STAR Bucks & STARs of the Month O Incidents of Seclusion & Restraint O Behavior Incident Forms Data based decision making • Used to track incidents of threatening or dangerous behavior which may require additional (tier II & tier III) behavioral interventions • NOTE: BIF does not apply to students with a Tier II or Tier III plan – data should continue to be collected as outlined in his/her plan. • Review procedures and questions regularly at staff meetings Behavior Incident Forms MORE PBIS AT ED TECH! • • • • Spaghetti Dinner & Open House T-Shirt Sales Donations Fundraising efforts and donations Money used to fund: • T-shirts for staff and students • Posters & visuals • Acknowledgement systems • Monthly Celebrations Fundraising • Transportation is part of the school day • Behavioral expectations for the bus are defined as they are for any other school setting • Goals are safety first • Direct relationship between good behavior and bus safety • Structure is essential • Load and unload in an orderly fashion • Avoid congestion • Active supervision when possible (visual scanning) • Greet and chat with students • Where we’re headed • Bus Bucks • STAR Rider of the day • Teaching Day on the bus • Green, Yellow, Red on the bus PBIS on the Bus • PBIS Question, Comment, Suggestion Box in Lounge • Materials in Lounge • Mentor assignment – monthly check ins • Monthly activities for staff What else?
