Positive Narration & Reinforcement: Exit Ticket (Part 1)

Positive narration is when a teacher draws attention to a desired behavior, and reinforces behavior in a constructive and narrative way. Teachers use positive narration to increase time on task attendance and positively reinforce expectations of the given directive.When transitioning to Part 1 of the lesson's Exit Ticket or other activity, teachers use Positive Narration by labeling a specific positive behavior: For example, “I like the way [student] is Following Directions. Nice job staying on task and earning a dollar!” By narrating immediately following a directive, and continuing to narrate throughout the lesson, teachers communicate that the directions are important.

Positive Narration  supports a student's ability to build self-control and their sense of autonomy. When utilized effectively, consistently and equitably, students grow to recognize positive narration as the way in which the teacher thoughtfully and respectfully offers support, encourages excellence and extends opportunities to self-correct.
