The special education programs at the Lapeer
County Education and Technology Center are
dedicated to working with students to increase
independence and socialization in order to
become participating citizens in our society.
We believe in promoting safety, effort and
respect with each student and across the
school setting. To help accomplish this goal, we
will be using a school-wide approach to
addressing behavior using the framework of
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports.

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.
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.
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
• 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

• Immediately and directly addressing problem behavior is essential to positive
behavior changes. 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
• 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.
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

dangerous behavior which may require additional

• 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
