Specific Positive Feedback at UHS

Using specific positive feedback is a proven method for increasing frequency of positive behaviors. Specific positive feedback is essentially as simple as telling people exactly what they do that you appreciate! Use this guide for some examples of how to use it!

Name(s) + Gratitude + Action
"Marc + thank you for + putting away your Chromebook and plugging it in.”
"Table 5,  + I appreciate you all + coming into class quietly and getting out your books.”
"Kelly, + thanks a lot for +

running those forms up to the office for me.”

"Maria and Destiny, + nice job on + having no missing or late assignments this week.”
"Ms. Stevens, + thank you so much + for getting back to me so quickly about your student’s grade.”
"Alex + you really helped me out by +

collecting all those papers for me at the end of class.”

Identifying the specific things we appreciate that people do is a great way to promote feelings of inclusion and appreciation, and a respectful, welcoming school culture. Remember our school-wide expectations: Respect, Responsibility, and Integrity, and be sure to let others know they’ve been a part of promoting that culture!

The reviewing team will be visiting classrooms utilizing the Classroom Walkthrough Tool. The items highlighted in yellow must be evident in all classrooms in order for us to score a 2 in that section of the TFI. This is not an evaluation for any teacher. They will be visiting 10% of the rooms on campus and it will be random.

Classroom Walkthrough Tool

The TFI team will also be conducting interviews with classified and certificated staff and students and will be asking the following questions:

Staff Questions:

  • What are the 3 School Wide Behavior Expectations? (Respect, Responsibility, Integrity)
  • Have you taught the behavior expectations this year? (If you haven't done so, please be sure to do so before the 25th! You don't have to be a teacher to "teach" expectations. All of us should be discussing this with kids.)
  • Have you given any rewards for appropriate behavior in the last 2 months? (Please be giving out SchoolMint “Hero Points”)

Student Questions:

  • What are the 3 School Wide Behavior Expectations? (Respect, Responsibility, Integrity)
  • Have you received a Hero Point in SchoolMint in the last 2 months? (Hopefully yes!)
