Product Description

¡Hola, amigos! Are you ready to start a great year? I am! Most of what I have up on my walls are authentic pieces of artesanía, but there are a precious few things I think are worth posting in my room, and which I refer to as we set up and reinforce classroom norms. One of those things is teaching ’los seis niveles’ (the 6 levels) of behavior and motivation. This is based heavily on master teacher Rafe Esquith’s adaptation of Kohlberg’s 6 levels of moral development. Most students (and teachers, and schools) are set up primarily focused on the first two ’levels’ - avoiding punishment or pain, and seeking reward or pleasure. 

I share these ’levels’ with the students early in the year, and we discuss why students DO, or DON’T DO certain things. I share how important it is to me personally to work very hard and to be very kind to others. I give examples of what each level might look like in our class, or on our school campus. Then, I give the students some examples and have them identify what level the people use in the examples. Then, I give the students a self-reflection assignment in which they rank their own level(s) of motivations/behavior, and a response to their own reflections. There are several other extension activities to work on the six levels. In the world language classroom, this is also a great opportunity for discussion of real-life issues in the target language. It’s always a good reminder, because even if someone ranks their motivation/behavior fairly low - we all still typically aspire to live in the upper levels. 

Since this product is in Spanish and English, it is great for Spanish classes, ESL, English classes, psychology or in any subject where you wish to talk about motivation and behaviors.
