Plan Title: Scavenge Through Literature!

Name: Jordan Evans

ID# 10

Scavenge Through Literature!
6th Grade
Undesirable Behavior Targeted: Students do not come to class and start working on their warm-up
immediately like they are told to do. Students exhibit off-task behavior (talking, phone use, sleeping,
and not actively listening) while reading as a class, reading independently, and working independently
leading to wasting time during class learning.
Desirable (expected) Behavior Targeted: The students should come into the classroom, pull out their
journals, and begin working on their warm-ups quietly. Students should have their phones and other
technological devices put away in their bags so they are not easily distracted. The students should not
be sleeping while reading as a class. The students should only talk when prompted and be on-task
(actively working, phones away, reading the whole timed period, talking about school work only)
while working independently.
Types of positive reinforcements - Reinforced
1. Immediate R+ - Add feet onto the path
2. Ongoing R+ - Students will get 2 feet added to the map/path when they come in and are in their seat
quietly working on the warm-up when the bell rings. 2 feet added when there is no phone/technology
usage or sleeping during class. 2 feet added when everyone is keeping conversations limited, no
technology use, and reading diligently when working independently.
3. Overall R+ - Scavenge Through Literature!
4. The teacher will take tallies secretly on her own when she notices the students exhibiting the desired
behavior and add feet to the path at the end of each class for the students to see. The students can
receive a maximum of 6 feet a day and will need 15 feet on the path to receive a clue toward the
scavenger hunt. The students will need at least 6 clues to complete the scavenger hunt.
Interactive Learning Activity: The students will get to enjoy a scavenger hunt around the school, using
clues that are based off of important and main points from the fiction stories we will read in class.
(6) Reading/Comprehension of Literary Text/Fiction. Students understand, make inferences and draw
conclusions about the structure and elements of fiction and provide evidence from text to support their
understanding. Students are expected to:(A) Summarize the elements of plot development (e.g., rising
action, turning point, climax, falling action, denouement) in various works of fiction;(B) Recognize
dialect and conversational voice and explain how authors use dialect to convey character; and
(C) Describe different forms of point-of-view, including first- and third-person.
Teach the Desired Behaviors: Discussing and describing the desired behaviors and expectations from the
students. Using students that exhibit the desired behavior as examples and modeling out behaviors myself
for the students to see. Also, walking the students trough step-by-step as to what I will expect in the
classroom.
Teaching the Plan: I will first talk to the students about their behavior and what I expect to see in the
classroom. I will then explain to them the path and how many feet they can get for each desired behavior.
I will tell them that when they get to the desired number of feet and clues, they will get to use a whole
class period to complete a scavenger hunt around the school.
Options: Each class period will have their own map/path to complete. They will all get to experience the
scavenger hunt on the same day or on different days depending on when they collect all of the required
feet and clues. If there is a different desired behavior in different classes, I will change how many feet the
class gets for that behavior.
Demonstrate all Necessary Items: Feet stickers, a homemade path, made-up clues.
