Notes

Abstract: During the 2009-2010 school year, two teachers from the kindergarten team at McNair Elementary implemented a new behavior modification plan in the hopes that it would allow the students an opportunity to take responsibility for their own behavior. Through the use of growth plans and contracts, the teaching team attempted to modify the behavior of a select few kindergarten students. Prior to the start of the student teacher rotations, the mentor teachers kept a behavior log for each student in their respective classroom. While many students responded to the new plan, there were some that did not appear to understand the concept of internalizing appropriate behavior and remained unaffected by the use of the growth plans.
