Stop negative behavior in your classroom before it starts by reinforcing your expectations and recognizing positive student behaviors. With two simple tools, I successfully managed student behavior at the secondary level. A ticket system and "shout outs" are little to no cost, require little work for you as the teacher, and will encourage on task, positive behavior from your middle school and high school students.
No more treasure box! Great behavior coupons. I love the ideas in here, like Show & Tell. Students get to pick rewards that are meaningful to them! I think this is great for starting kids on the path to intrinsic motivation.
