    Behavior Contracts
    By CC

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have 15 boys and 7 girls in my class and 10 of the kids should be on behavior contracts or charts. I do not have the time for this so I have chosen 4 that seem to get the others started. I also was overwhelmed by the comment type of behavior contract but then a mentor teacher introduced me to a new form. My students have 3 categories Behavior, Productivity, and Assignments. They are then rated on a rubric type style. 1 is for being rude, disruptive, not following directions, not doing the work, not turning in work, etc. Then it goes up to a 4 which means that everything is perfect. I do not need to write a lot of comments because it is clear on the rubric. This saves a lot of time. I can just circle a number every hour then at the end of the day if it is needed I will write a note home. I also use the color code system along with this. I am seeing some better behavior and work from my class. If you would like a copy of this rubric to see exactly what it looks like please email me. I hope this might help.
