Essay on Student Behavior: Best and Worst Case Scenario

Citizenship, Rewards and Consequences

To help motivate students to learn Spanish and meet behavior expectations, the teacher will provide the following:

– Earn outings to cultural events, museums, etc.
– Preferred Activity Time
– Rewards Tickets (used in classroom raffle)
– Specific behavioral narration that includes statements about the appropriate behavior children displayed
– Positive calls home

If students choose to not follow the Class Expectations, after reasonable attempts to re-direct a student or group of students, the following actions will take place:

➔ The student will be asked to do the behavior over again the correct way. If it is not possible for the behavior to be done over respectfully, the students will be asked to do or say something positive in the classroom to make up for the behavior.

➔ If a student refuses to follow any direction, he or she will be asked to speak to the teacher away from the rest of the class to discuss the behavior. Upon return, the student will be asked to do the behavior over in the correct way.

➔ If a student does any behavior that is a safety risk, sexual harassment, bullying or anything else that the teacher feels requires immediate time outside the classroom, the student will be asked to leave immediately. This may also include refusal to follow directions if this may result in a safety concern.

➔ The teacher may contact parents at any time during reasonable hours to report positive or negative behavior.

➔ If a student earns a citizenship score of 2 (on a scale of 1 – 5) or less, they will need to serve a brief after-school reflection time (never more than 15 min.). Citizenship is based on following the classroom expectations

➔ *In the case of severe violations of classroom standards, the students will be removed immediately from the classroom and a discipline referral will be filed with administration.*

When the teacher speaks to a students about behavior, the classroom expectations will be clearly stated to the students. The student may be asked to state the rule and write about why it is important.
