Routines and Procedures

Student Scouts/Narrators

I ask Student Scouts to identify peers who demonstrate the three class standards/rules (showing respect, solving problems, and making good decisions) to reinforce the idea that good behavior is rewarded both intrinsically and extrinsically. Student Scouts identify their peers who are showing these standards at various pausing points throughout the lesson and give out Literacy Awards. Pausing points are planned purposefully and serve as opportunities for students to practice monitoring and assessing their own behavior.

Strategy Explanation
 
 
When Student Scouts identify positive behavior during a lesson, they give out Literacy Awards. This is an explanation of Literacy Awards as well as some photos of Literacy Awards I use in my classroom. Once a Literacy Award is given (normally after a midway point in a lesson and/or at the end of a lesson), the Scout needs to justify why the award was given. My students collect Literacy Awards and put them in their unit folders.

Feedback Systems
Teamwork Self-Assessment Rubric

At the conclusion of our team sessions my students self-assess, give feedback/compliments to one another, and agree or share out their disagreements with one another. Our two areas of focus right now are collaboration and accountability. My students score themselves on a scale from 1-4 on these habits and then track their progress daily/weekly in order to consider their next steps or provide feedback to one another. Perhaps most importantly, the sentence stems within the rubric help my students develop a repertoire of conversational skills they will need in the 21st century and beyond.
