Developing a Classroom Matrix: "Leave No Behaviors Untaught"

The school-wide matrix, the social/emotional/behavioral curriculum, is taught and re-taught to all students as data demonstrates the need. The logical next step is to bring those rules into the classroom and teach students the procedures and routines they need to demonstrate in order to follow those rules. Together we will walk through the development of a classroom matrix and ensure it meets the 5 essential guidelines.
