Time for a Reset
As you reflect on the effectiveness of your own classroom behavior systems during the first few months of school, think about both the successes and the growth areas you've experienced. Take time to revisit and reinforce the expectations that are already working well to ensure that these behaviors continue into the new year. For the items on your list that are falling short of your standards, consider using a transparent approach with your class and address the unmet expectations. Not only does this model the importance of reflection, but also provides an opportunity for students to take active ownership of the routine or revised expectation.
