100 Percent is the practice of utilizing interventions to ensure the engagement of every student before moving forward with a lesson. Teachers should expect full engagement from his or her students at any given time. The goal of this practice is not to utilize power but to achieve an important purpose - the success of students. The practice is done quickly, positively, and seamlessly to achieve compliance and student attentiveness.
- State academic or behavioral expectations.
- Scan the room to ensure that 100 percent of students are meeting the expectation.
- If there is not entire engagement, choose from the following interventions to solve noncompliance quickly:
- Non-verbal intervention: Use eye contact with off-task students, without interrupting instruction.
- Positive class correction: Provides a quick verbal reminder to all students.
- Private individual correction: Correct individuals privately and quietly by approaching the student and in a quiet voice telling the student of the classroom expectation.
- Lightening-quick public individual correction: When you need to correct an individual student publicly, minimize attention by doing so quickly.
- Consequence: Save consequences for occasional use by attempting to solve non-compliance quickly through one of the previously listed techniques.
- Implement the 100 Percent practice to achieve full compliance. Make sure the intervention is fast and invisible. Thank students for their cooperation and move on with the lesson.
