Motivational strategies recommended for student are poorly described. Strategy to reduce or eliminate misbehavior described is insufficiently applicable to the student. Specific behaviors reinforced (continuous and intermittent) along with the reinforcer used are not applicable to the student described.

Motivational strategies recommended for student are adequately described. Strategy to reduce or eliminate misbehavior described is reasonable for the student while using appropriate behaviorist principles. Specific behaviors reinforced (continuous and intermittent) along with the reinforcer used are applicable to the student described.

Motivational strategies recommended for student are appropriate and sufficiently described.

20.0 %Organization and Effectiveness

20.0 % Mechanics of Writing (includes spelling, punctuation, grammar, language use)

Surface errors are pervasive enough that they impede communication of meaning. Inappropriate word choice and/or sentence construction are used.

Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register) and/or word choice are present. Sentence structure is correct but not varied.

Some mechanical errors or typos are present, but are not overly distracting to the reader. Correct and varied sentence structure and audience-appropriate language are employed.

Prose is largely free of mechanical errors, although a few may be present. The writer uses a variety of effective sentence structures and figures of speech.

Writer is clearly in command of standard, written, academic English.

Behaviorism Scenarios


1.Second grader Marla has gotten out of her seat during teacher-led instruction (of various topics/subjects) 5 times in the last week. When you asked her why she was getting up, she told you, “I just get antsy!”

2.Third graders Frank and Raul often whisper during the teacher-led math instruction, even after being asked to stop.

3.Fifth grader Tamara has not turned in six of her last eight homework assignments (includes all subjects). When you asked her why, she said that she sometimes forgets what she needs to do, especially on days she has piano practice after school.

4.Sixth grader Rosie has been late to class 4 times in the last two weeks. When you spoke with her about it, you were finally able to tell that it is because she spends too long in the bathroom combing her hair before your class.

5.You have seen third grader Roy looking at other’s papers during independent assignments as well as on all three of the last three tests in ELA and Social Studies. When you asked him about it, he denied doing it. Through your conversation, you ascertained that he doesn’t seem to realize that he is doing it.

6.Seventh grader Susan used disrespectful language and tone of voice when speaking to you, her teacher, including “Duh” and “I don’t think so.” When you asked her about it, she replied that she didn’t think what she said was disrespectful.

7.Eighth grader Wayne has come to school four times wearing T-shirts with obscene, racist, or otherwise inappropriate pictures and messages. When you asked him why he continued to wear these things, he replied it was because he thought it was funny.
