This month's management focus:

T-GRAPH FOR SOCIAL SKILLS.

HEADS TOGETHER, TEAMS!

"If it's not on the chart, you can't EARN POINTS for it."

Key Points

  • Students identify good behavior
  • Students verbalize and internalize appropriate behavior
  • More meaningful to the students than teacher imposed rules
  • Sets standards for cooperative groups and develops social skills
  • All statements are in positive terms

Step-by-Step

  1. Focus on a different social skill for each unit (cooperation, respect, trustworthiness...)
  2. Brainstorm the meaning of the word with your students and record it on a web
  3. Brainstorm what behaviors you would SEE, or someone else would see, if a group member was demonstrating this character trait.
  4. Brainstorm what specific words you would HEAR if someone was demonstrating this character trait.
  5. Revisit the T-graph regularly to add to the list of behaviors, and refer to these specific behaviors when awarding group points.

Three Personal Standards

1. Show respect

2. Make good decisions

3. Solve problems
