Clip to ScrapBook #2

I think classroom management cannot be one size fits all. We all have different personalities. I'm retired now, but my last 2 years of teaching was all about PBIS. In the last year they brought out the big reward Wheel of Fortune spinners which were supposed to be used every 15 minutes to increase student engagement and positive student behaviors. REALLY?? Once a week I had to take my students to the school store to cash in their reward tickets for some annoying Oriental Trading Toy. What a waste of teaching time. I still have the belief that rewards should be given for exceptional behavior or something beyond the norm. With this system teachers were passing out tickets just for showing up or just for smiling. It was out of control. If you have high expectations for your students, you shouldn't need to shower them with rewards. It's only confusing to the students. I'm glad you figured out a way to make PBIS work for your classroom! Bravo!
