Want students to take charge of their own experience at school? Here is a perfect way to hold students accountable for their actions and their learning. I created this to provide my students with independence within the classroom.
This program has drastically changed my classroom environment. Students are helpful, accountable, reliable, and motivated to not only do their best work but to also create a safe and welcoming learning space for all.
As a class we brainstormed what qualities and characteristics we look for in Model Citizens. I then used those characteristics to hand out Model Student Awards. Once a student earned 3 Model Student Awards they were eligible to apply for their Model Citizen Badge. This requires them to find 2 sponsors within the building to help them problem solve when they loose their badge.
