Teaching Respectful, Ready, & Responsible -daily discussions -read books -role play in different settings -video modeling: appropriate & inappropriate -create social scripts

Procedures for addressing rule violations -Correcting behaviors in private, not in public -For minor infractions, use phrases such as, Try it again the right way. In the occasion when a student forgets to raise her/his hand, say, Set it up the right way. -For major infractions, use private student conferences with reflection sheets.
