Some else new to do...

Clip to ScrapBook #1

(That should say Something else...sheesh) we have to give Specific Positive Praise.

"Suzy, I like how you are sitting up straight"
"Thank you Joe, for listening carefully"
"Bobby, you are being so helpful to your partner, thank you"

We need to eliminate "Sit up", "Stop talking" "Pay attention" "Put your pencil away"

Because these are all negative. Seriously.

When asked how often we should be giving this Specific Positive Praise, we were told...

"Oh, about one a minute." wait, what? seriously? Praise a different student every minute of the day? The whole day?

"Well, yes, that shouldn't be too hard, right? You could do 3 every 3 minutes if that helps..."

This might be the straw, folks...

Oh yeah...and they will be doing random observations and tallying how many we give. And making a spreadsheet. And sharing the data with the school at a future meeting...
