Do you teach reading and writing workshop? Have you struggled to build and maintain a strong culture that allows you to conference and pull strategy groups? This resource includes a tiered behavior system, where students can earn class privileges by demonstrating expected behaviors.
How to Use This Resource:
Each table, team, or workshop partnership starts with level one: developing habits. This level pushes students to demonstrate foundational habits. When you see students demonstrate a behavior, place a sticker on their sheet. Give students a compliment on the specific behavior and connect the behavior to how it impacts their learning. Once the group has a sticker on every behavior, they earn the class privilege and begin on the next level, repeating the process. Use group behavior charts allows to increase peer accountability. If students are struggling with behaviors, you can take the privileges away for the day or try a three strike policy. With the third strike, the group starts back at the beginning.
Use this resource as a starting place to clarify your expectations, distinguish class privileges from class rights, and hold yourself and your students accountable for building and maintaining a strong workshop that promotes academic and social and emotional learning standards.
