Immediate Feedback & Reinforcement: Informal Assessment

During the Informal Assessment section and throughout the lesson plan, teachers can increase their use of the Social Economy to provide Immediate Feedback and Positive Reinforcement of behavior. They consistently describe the behavior (participation) when awarding dollars. “Nice job earning a participation dollar.” This helps strengthen the foundation for teacher workplace behavior, self-advocacy and self-regulation. These phrases will change to include a variety of other behaviors such as on-task, sharing, following directions, interrupting, off-task, off-topic, etc. Teachers also use the phrase, “Nice job earning a participation dollar,” at least five (5) times during the Informal Assessment section of the lesson plan.
