Initial teaching and reteaching after extended breaks and/or as data indicates necessary are crucial to the success of any PBIS program. It's important to be explicit in your teaching to minimize confusion and unmeant interpretations of expectations.

Matrix Best-Practices

Schoolwide Expectations

Language on your school's matrix should be clear and concise. It's important to avoid ambiguous words that leave interpretation up to each student. Take a look at the sample matrix to the right.

Let's look at an example that has been corrected. The corrections are in bold text. You can see that the new language is much more clear and explicit, making it easier for students to understand what is truly expected of them.Some expectations, such as "Use equipment for its purpose only," will still need to be taught to students, as we cannot assume that students come to us knowing the purpose of each piece of equipment. Check out an example for teaching this expectation by clicking the tooltip icon.

'

When teaching and reteaching expectations at the beginning of school and following extended breaks, it is important to go over and model each expectation. For instance, "Basketballs are used for dribbling and shooting. Basketballs are not for kicking. If you would like to kick a ball, please use a soccer ball or a kickball." By teaching this expectation, you are leaving nothing up to the student's interpretation.

Building an Expectations Matrix

In this clip, our trainer, , is back to give you additional information on setting up your school's expectation matrix.

At PBIS Rewards, we know that getting started on your PBIS journey is no easy feat. We want you to know that our team members are equipped, ready, and eager to help ensure your success! Below are several tips and resources, including a matrix template, to help get you started.

Anna

  • Behavior Matrix Example

  • Virtual Learning Behavior Matrix Example

  • Matrix Template Download

  • School's often use their mascot, motto, or an inspiring word to help develop a memorable acronym. Many schools choose to keep it simple by using Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe.
  • Remember, it's important to use positive language on your matrix. Avoid using "Do not..." phrases.
  • It's also important to use direct and consice expectations. If you need further guidelines, try to keep each box on your matrix to 3 or less expectations, and keep expectations below 10 words each.
  • Make a plan to print or order posters to hang at each identified location with the expectations for that area.

Plan to devote time at the beginning of the year to teach expectations. It's also important to consistently monitor data and potentially practice expectations and/or areas where data indicates a need.

Use PBIS Rewards web portal or app to acknowledge students who are following expectations. While you are looking for students to acknowledge, also take the opportunity to reteach expectations that are not being met.

Looking at data helps determine where students are not yet meeting the expectation(s). It's important to take a broad look at the data to work to determine if there are misconceptions, or deeper issues that need addressing.

Behavior Instruction & Routines

🎯 I can use a behavior reinforcement schedule to teach students expectations from a schoolwide and classroom matrix using behavior specific praise.

Behavior Instruction & Routines

The Classroom Matrix

Just like the Schoolwide Behavior Matrix, having and teaching expectations with a Classroom Matrix provides consistency and clarity for students. Some schools may provide a Classroom Matrix for their teachers, and others may ask their teachers to create their own matrix, tailored to the needs of their classroom.Hover over the tooltips on the picture for some great tips on process and routine expectations to include on your classroom's behavior matrix, then click next to continue.

At least at first (more on that later). Think of all of the stores and restaurants you frequent. It would be hard to think of one that does not offer some type of loyalty rewards. Why? Stores want you to keep coming back, AKA behave a certain way. When we reward our students for following expectations, we are encouraging them to behave in a way that is conducive to their learning. Giving points shows students that you see and appreciate their positive behavior, and lets them know they are valued and inspires them to be committed and happy students.

Behavior Specific Praise

1) A behavior expectation is being met and is observed.2) Observer gives praise, telling the student how this behavior affects them, by using an "I feel" statement.

Behavior specific praise is an important aspect of PBIS, as it is indicating to the student that you recognize their efforts, showing other students in the class that you are both looking for appropriate behaviors, and provides students who are potentially not meeting expectations an example of what is appropriate and an opportunity to correct their behavior. Sincerity and consistency are key!

Giving Behavior Specific Praise is as easy as....

Stuck trying to come up with "I feel" words? Click here for a word bank of sample "I feel" words we recommend for Primary/Elementary and Middle/High school.

Scenario: You see a student walking in the hall and following the hallway expectation, Walk quietly in the hall.

"I feel so proud when I see that you're walking quietly and safely down the hall. I'm awarding you a point!"

"I really appreciate when you walk down the hallway quietly. Thank you so much!"

Right! Even if Jenny is truly the only one who is "not getting on your last nerve," you should always refrain from insinuating other students are behaving negatively.

Jared, I am so impressed at how you are using the recess equipment appropriately.

Right! Remember, the goal is to draw attention to what behavior is meeting the expectation, rather than any behaviors that are not meeting expectations.

Austin, it's so respectful when you are focusing while using technology.

3/5

3/5

Right! It's a great idea to acknowledge a student who is meeting expectations to give other students an example of what you expect, but it's best to point out the correct student, rather than the others who are not following expectations.

Grace, thank you for sharing your materials. That is very generous!

I really like how Grace is actually sharing her materials for once.

Please explore all elements of this page before continuing through the module.

We've mentioned that initial teaching of expectations at the beginning of the year is absolutely imperative to having success with PBIS. This task can feel daunting, but we have a few suggestions and sample schedules to help get you started!

  • Plan on spending time each day during the first two weeks of school teaching expectations
  • We recommend your school's PBIS Leadership Team writing lessons for each schoolwide expectation. This ensures all students are getting the same instruction and takes the task off of the teachers' plates in an already very busy season.
  • Don't hesitate to have fun with this! Making lighthearted videos of examples and nonexamples of expected behaviors give teaching expectations some fun and flair!
  • Add in a competition or game. It could be between grade levels, homerooms, or classes.
