BEHAVIOR MATRIX & CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
A behavior matrix is built at the school level to clearly define the school-wide expectations across settings. It serves as an essential teaching tool for adults and students.
What is it?
A behavior matrix presents the school-wide expectations on the far-left hand side of a table with one expectation per row. Across the top of the table, each column is labeled with a different setting in the school building. Within each setting column, examples of that expectation are described in a way that allows them to be 1) taught, 2) modeled, 3) practiced and 4) observed.
How is it implemented?
A school team builds the behavior matrix around the agreed upon school wide expectations. Examples should be stated positively, be measurable and limited to no more than five in one setting when possible. After the school-wide matrix is built and agreed upon, the expectations and concrete examples would be posted in all designated settings.
