Unrealistic behavior goals will crash and burn

Watch this video [1:08] to see how I make behavior goals realistic.

If I try to change all of a student’s behaviors at once, I will completely fail. If I am trying to make a child not disrupt, not refuse, AND do her class work, it will not work.

Instead, I ask myself: What do I want from this child the most?

Let’s say I want her to show up every day.

Then that’s where I start.

Once I get her to show up every day, then I set the next goal.

I’d like her to show up every day AND not drop ‘f’ bombs.
