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??
  • 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…
  • 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
  • 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

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
  • 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
  • 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…
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Illegal Acts
  • Physically Dangerous Acts (Intentional vs. Unintentional)
  • Harassment/Bullying
  • Acts of Defiance (Most Difficult) – Why?
acts of defiance
Acts of Defiance
  • 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)
