PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WHAT IT IS…

Establishing a solid classroom management plan is essential for every teacher. Even with challenging students, when a plan is put in place, learning can be optimized for every student. I love Dr. Marvin Marshall’s Discipline Without Stress. It incorporates all of the democratic principles we are taught about in our education classes.


HOW IT WORKS…

From the first day of school and every day afterward, the Level 5 democratic behavior plan has been my best friend. All of my students know what it means to be a “LEVEL 5” as established by Dr. Marvin Marshall. Twice a day (usually before lunch and at the end of the day) I ask my students to “rate their citizenship”. They pull out their cards and rate their behavior based on their opinion (democratic-choice principle). At the end of the day they average their scores and see what level they are on. When students are acting out throughout the day, I can simply say “change your card” and they know to pull it out and cross off the highest number. Students who are a 4 or 5 are rewarded with recess. I usually take off minutes of recess for scores 3 and lower. This procedure holds students more accountable for their behavior and gets parents involved with a weekly signature.

TWO VERSIONS…

There are two versions of the card. The first card is what I use for most of the school year, if not the entire time. For more difficult students who are not quite sure what a “Level 5” means, I use the second card, which is more specific.
