8 Goal of the Tracking Form Collect data that are necessary to identify effective ways of changing inappropriate classroom behavior ( minor ) before it results in an office discipline referral ( major )
9 Classroom Tracking Forms Classroom behaviors take up considerable amounts of teacher time that could be better spent on instruction Forms assist in identifying the pattern of behavior and determining interventions that will be most effective for the student(s)
10 Guidelines When does a recurring behavior become a major? Same behavior (3 minors = 1 major) From one particular teacher Suggested time frame ( 3minors within 4 weeks) Used as a tool to identify patterns of behavior When are the behaviors occurring? (math, transition) What are the recurring behaviors? What are the classroom interventions that have been used? Are these interventions working or does something else need to be utilized? Why is the behavior occurring? (motivation, example: Johnny rips up his math sheet and is given time out and gets out of his work. He always gets to avoid doing his math work)
