Reflection Question

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.


4:1 Campaign

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.
