Start and end
every day with Positivity
At the heart of best practices for classroom management are clear and explicit expectations for students. And teachers have their own expectations to meet—producing academic outcomes while managing and reporting on behavior. Having access to an integrated system for delivering consistent behavioral support is vital to keeping students focused on learning—and to maintaining compliance.
for positive outcomes
It starts with your daily visual schedule, which helps set student expectations, support routines and reduce anxiety. Visual schedules are easily created in Positivity based on the individual and class schedules that automatically integrate with your other n2y solutions, helping you manage instruction throughout the day.
Timely strategies help students generalize new behaviors
Once you begin delivering on-demand interventions like calming breaths and incentives, and preassigning strategies like break cards and social narratives, the positive behaviors become habitual for your students, and reinforcing them becomes second nature to you. Positivity helps you minimize disruptions to keep the focus on learning.
Approach behavior with confidence and consistency
When you project predictability and consistency, your students learn with more confidence. To help you proactively manage classroom behavior, Positivity combines clear, consistent strategies, customizable templates you can save for ongoing use, and guidance on implementing the strategies with fidelity. And the digital delivery of strategies was designed for portability, providing the consistency your students need as they transition throughout their day—to the cafeteria, a general education classroom or therapy.
Keep track of the most effective strategies
To further ensure fidelity and consistency, Positivity’s robust, automated data collection reports on the timing, frequency and success of the strategies you’ve used, helping you plan and implement all stages of your behavior and intervention program with fidelity.
Create an efficient, safe and productive classroom environment
It’s a win-win. Easy to implement and individualize, Positivity empowers you to spend more time on teaching and learning, less time correcting behavior. As a result, you’ll experience less likelihood of burnout and more positive interactions among your students, their peers and all the adults who work with them. You’ll be leading a more productive classroom with improved behavior and student outcomes.
