PBIS PAWS Newsletter
Our top offenses were:
- 42 referrals for tardies
- 42 referrals for insubordination
- 38 skipping and truancy (represents a 50% decrease from October)
- 32 for class disruptions
What might be causing the spike of referrals for insubordination and class disruption?
Classroom Management Tip:
Acknowledge the positive behaviors in a class. Don't focus on the negative.
Tally how many times you give a positive, verbal praise to a student and tally the negative comments or redirection. A good ratio by the end of the class is 4:1- that is 4 positive comments to every 1 negative comment. If you meet that then you are focusing on positive interactions with students. See if this helps with the insubordination and class disruptions.
