Teaching Script - CLASSROOM

Step 1: Introduce the Rule

A. Outline focus for the lesson. “Today, we are going to learn about CARES and how we
are expected to behave in the ​classroom​."
○ Check for student understanding, “What are we going to learn about today?”
○ Rationale for for teaching these expectations in the ​classroom​: “When CARES
guides our behavior, we are all able to have a good day. The expectations are
important so that our ​classroom​ is Cooperative, Appropriate, Respectful,
Efficient, and Safe.”

Step 2: Demonstrate the Rule

B. Model examples of desired behavior. You will string several behaviors together. Have
students label your actions during the demonstration.
Model the following behaviors while thinking out loud.
○ Cooperative: Raise your hand and wait to be called on before speaking. Be
aware of others working around you.
○ Appropriate: Always use inside voices and keep your voice off while others are
speaking.
○ Respectful: Use kind words and be mindful of others’ opinions and
backgrounds. Keep your desk organized and clean.
○ Efficient: Come into class quietly and begin work on the board. When the
teacher asks everyone to line up, do so quietly the first time you are asked.
○ Safe: Keep hands and feet to self. In case of emergency, listen and follow
directions immediately, quickly, and quietly.
C. Role plays. some examples to use…
○ Here is a scenario for what Cooperative behavior in the ​classroom ​looks like.
Give students the scenario, have them act it out and perform the
correct/expected behavior: If you have a question or comment during class,
raise your hand. Wait until the teacher calls on you before you speak.
Remember that others are working around you, even if you finish early.
○ Here is a scenario for what Appropriate behavior in the ​classroom ​looks like.
Give students the scenario, have them act it out and perform the
correct/expected behavior: Anytime we are inside the building, we only use our
inside voices. If others are already speaking, we will patiently wait our turn to
speak.
○ Here is a scenario for what Respectful behavior in the ​classroom ​looks like.
Give students the scenario, have them act it out and perform the
correct/expected behavior: Only use kind words when speaking to our
classmates and teachers. If someone shares their opinion and background that
is different from yours, still be mindful and kind about their what they believe,
even if you don’t agree.
○ Here is a scenario for what Efficient behavior in the ​classroom ​looks like.
Give students the scenario, have them act it out and perform the
correct/expected behavior: At the start of class, come in quietly and begin
immediately on the work on the board. When the teacher asks everyone to line
up at the end of class, line up quickly and quietly the very first time she asks.
○ Here is a scenario for what Safe behavior in the ​classroom ​looks like. Give
students the scenario, have them act it out and perform the correct/expected
behavior: In an emergency situation, always listen and follow directions
immediately. Keep hands and feet to self.

Step 3: Provide Monitoring and Feedback

D. Discuss the role play


○ Ask students to explain what they saw in terms of the CARES model
○ Encourage and support responses that are examples of school-appropriate
behaviors and minimize attention for school-inappropriate responses.

E. Use real situations as examples during class discussions.
○ Just before students transition to another activity outside of the ​classroom,
ask them to tell you how they can demonstrate Cooperation, Appropriateness,
Respect, Efficiency, and Safety.
○ When you see student(s) being Cooperative (or Appropriate, or Respectful, or
Efficient, or Safe) provide specific praise to the student(s).
○ When you see student(s) who are not following CARES, stop them, ​state the
rule and redirect, ​ask the student(s) to state or demonstrate the expected
behavior, watch the student(s), and give immediate feedback.
