My Students

My classroom is a high school behavioral special day classroom that is designed for students who demonstrate moderate maladaptive behaviors that impede with their learning and the learning of others. My students need a highly structured class setting with a main focus area of behavioral shaping or modification. The students in my classroom thrive off of receiving positive reinforcement for expected classroom behavior. We have a classroom token economy system that promotes rewarding students for exhibiting expected behavior. The rewards that my students can purchase with their class dollars are individualized to meet their specific preferences. My students are all unique in their own special ways and are truly a joy to work with!

My Project

A key element of my Behavioral Special Day Class is the implementation of our behavioral point sheets and class economy system. These components are designed to reinforce positive behavior and keep all aspects of the system as structured as possible. Students receive point sheets on a daily basis. Point sheets track student behavior and their level of engagement in classroom activities. Appropriate application of positive reinforcement has repeatedly been demonstrated to increase both on-task behavior and work completion.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic and behavioral achievements by providing them with an amazing reinforcement opportunity.

Please help fund this gaming system so that my students can receive an amazing reinforcement opportunity for exhibiting appropriate classroom behavior. I will utilize this gaming system in my classroom to motivate my students to do their work and exhibit appropriate behavior while doing so. All of my students have expressed their interest in video games and will thrilled to receive this amazing opportunity to be rewarded at school for making improvements in their behavior.
