As a special education teacher, I came up with these charts and contracts to address students with difficult behaviors, including students with Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) plans, or Behavior Improvement Plans (BIP) when I was first using them.
The goal of the contract and chart is to give teachers a universal behavior plan to motivate a student to improve his/her behavior and to track a student’s behaviors daily. The contract paired with the behavior chart helps the student feel more ownership in the situation. Teachers have the option of doing a once-a-day check-in with the student or have the student get it signed at the end of each class and then turn it in. The daily per class tracking gives the student frequent feedback on his/her behavior and allows him/her to earn points quickly, and teachers can see patterns of behavior during certain classes or times of day. The once-a-day check in is easier to use and helps establish a strong relationship between the student and check-in teacher. The student will be motivated to reach their target goal to get a small reward while also internalizing the importance of the target behaviors to help him/her be successful.
I've included an implementation guide with details on how to use the contract and charts. There are 24 templates in total, giving you the option to address 2-5 behaviors in either a once a day check-in or have the student check-in with their teacher at the end of every class. All of them are a Word file, so you can edit them, or upload and convert them to Google Docs and edit from there. I’ve also made female and male student versions to save you time with editing the gender pronouns - simply search my generic student name and replace it with your student’s name. In the implementation guide you will find a “History” of how I’ve used the charts and contracts, and successes and struggles I’ve experienced. Included are also editing tips to save you time and a list of some positive behaviors you can target.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know on my TPT page. I hope my behavior plan saves you time and helps your students. Thank you
