Creating Lesson Plans

The procedure for teaching behavior expectations is very similar to teaching an academic lesson. Steps for teaching expectations include:

  • Define the Expectation
  • Provide a Rationale
  • Teach the Critical Discrimination
  • Demonstrate Appropriate Behavior
  • Demonstrate Unacceptable Behavior
  • Practice telling the difference with multiple examples
  • If there is a “signal” teach the signal (when should the appropriate behavior occur?)
  • Have everyone practice the appropriate behavior
  • Acknowledge students for demonstrating appropriate behavior
