C. H. A. M. P. s








Meadowdale Middle School

September, 2008

I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.

It’s my personal approach that creates the climate.

It’s my daily mood that makes the weather.

As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous.

I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.

I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated – and a child humanized or dehumanized.

-Haim Ginott

What is c h a m p s
What is C.H.A.M.P.s?? decisive element in the classroom.

  • CHAMPs is a decision-making template to assist educators in developing a classroom management plan and implementing it successfully.

  • The CHAMPs approach is centered around proactive, positive steps taken by teachers in the classroom. It preserves individual preferences and respects teacher competence.

  • CHAMPs provides a common vocabulary for all to use in the promotion of a positive, learning centered culture.

The goal of positive behavior support is not “perfect” children. Rather, the goal should be the perfect environment for enhancing

their growth.

-John Marzano

What champs isn t
What CHAMPs isn’t… children. Rather, the goal should be the perfect environment for enhancing

  • CHAMPs is not a “canned” program. It does not want teachers to surrender their own personal style or preferences when managing their classrooms.

  • CHAMPs will not result in a school of docile, compliant, perfectly behaved students. Rather – it will promote positive adult/student interactions and clear communication of expectations.

  • CHAMPs is not about student behavior – it is about adult planning, communication, and response to student behavior.

Self assessment
Self Assessment children. Rather, the goal should be the perfect environment for enhancing

  • How much classroom structure do I need?

  • This may vary from year to year – depending upon the course being taught and/or the students you are teaching.

  • Complete the self assessment activity. When finished, share your results with a colleague.

  • Share with the group?

S t o i c
S.T.O.I.C. children. Rather, the goal should be the perfect environment for enhancing

The S.T.O.I.C. acronym provides the initial building blocks for developing a classroom management plan:

  • Structure for Success

  • Teach Expectations

  • Observe and Monitor

  • Interact Positively

  • Correct Fluently

    Let’s compare this with the 5 P’s.

Stoic- somebody who is unemotional, especially somebody who shows patience and endurance during adversity

Your classroom management plan
Your Classroom Management Plan children. Rather, the goal should be the perfect environment for enhancing

  • Use the checklist as a guide.

  • Use your CHAMPs book as a resource

  • Use the CHAMPs summary PowerPoint (thanks Kathe Miller!!) as a resource

  • Collaborate with colleagues – the expertise is in the room

  • State expectations in the positive

  • Effective Classroom management is usually about less – not more – rules and consequences

Your assignment
Your Assignment children. Rather, the goal should be the perfect environment for enhancing

  • Work with a partner or a group

  • Outline your classroom management plan with the CHAMPs philosophy as a guide

  • Develop a plan for communicating your expectations to your classes during the first week of school

  • Meet back in the Library at ???? to debrief and share.

Differentiating between mild moderate and severe misbehavior
Differentiating between Mild, Moderate and Severe misbehavior

  • Schools need a plan for dealing with different levels of misbehavior.

  • A plan provides consistency for staff and students when students misbehave.

  • Misbehavior can be classified into 3 categories – Mild, Moderate and Severe.

Without a plan
Without a plan… misbehavior

  • Staff are not sure how to deal with misbehavior

  • Staff responses are likely to be less consistent

  • Some staff may expect someone else to handle behavior problems, and feel frustrated when that doesn’t happen.

  • Some staff may have unrealistic expectations about what administrators can/should do with students who have been referred to the office.

Level 1 mild infractions
Level 1 – MILD Infractions misbehavior

  • Misbehaviors that can be adequately corrected at the time they occur, and which do not require documentation.

  • VAST majority of misbehaviors for students in the middle school years are Level 1 behaviors.

Level 2 moderate infractions
Level 2 – MODERATE Infractions misbehavior

  • Misbehaviors that, while not requiring immediate administrative involvement, do require documentation.

  • Usually results in an assigned consequence to be documented.

  • Parents are informed of Level 2 infractions by the staff member assigning the consequence.

Level 3 severe infractions
Level 3 – SEVERE Infractions misbehavior

  • Illegal Acts

  • Physically Dangerous Acts (Intentional vs. Unintentional)

  • Harassment/Bullying

  • Acts of Defiance (Most Difficult) – Why?

Acts of defiance
Acts of Defiance misbehavior

  • Acts in which a student engages in overt and immediate refusal to comply with a reasonable adult direction.

  • Student Defiance will be considered a Level 3 offense only when the following conditions are met:

    • The direction is clear and observable

    • The direction is immediate

    • The direction is given 3 times

    • With the 2nd repetition, the staff member emphasizes the serious nature of the student’s choice

    • With the 3rd repetition, the staff member writes the direction (giving the student time to respond)
