Product Description
Either students or teacher hold onto this sheet for 2 weeks. Students are expected to behave in the following ways in the classroom:

Classwork: Students complete their classwork, to the best of their abilities, without the need for excessive reminders. This category includes participation as well as written work.

Respect: Students interact with classmates and teacher in a kind or neutral way at all times. No bullying, no interrupting, no chatting while another student is presenting/reading/speaking, etc.

Use of Class's Time: The " 's " is intentional! Students comport themselves in a way that adds to the whole class's instruction time. Students should never take AWAY from their own learning or their CLASSMATES' learning by: playing on their phone, chatting during instruction/work time, walking around the room, sleeping, misbehaving, etc. Essentially, any behavior that would cause a teacher to pause instruction to give attention to the individual student who is misbehaving. This student is now taking away from their classmates.

How it works:
When a teacher sees a student breaking any of these rules, the teacher choose to give a single warning, or to tell the student right away that they lost a point. If the student loses a point, either the student or the teacher cross off a smiley face.

**This makes the interaction fast and effective**
"Bobby, cross off a classwork point for choosing to be on your phone instead of starting the Do Now."
"Carla, that was inappropriate. Cross of a respect point."
"Andres, Felicia is presenting right now and I had to interrupt her to tell you to get off your phone. Cross off a Class Time point."

After the quick interaction with a tangible consequence, the teacher can immediately go back to instruction.

Finally, to make the system a positive one, with genuine consequences, the behavior rubric grade each week should be treated as a quiz grade. Therefore, if students do the minimum (doing their work, being kind, and not taking away from others' learning time), they get a bonus quiz grade that will boost their overall grades. If a student frequently breaks these rules, there will be genuine consequences.

For more fun: each student who completes the week with a perfect score (or a 73 or above) can use their sheet as a raffle ticket for a small prize!
