Lake Ridge Elementary
Classroom and Group
Mindsets & Behaviors Action Plan
2019-20

The ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors guide the planning and delivery of all student activities and interventions. The purpose of the classroom and group Mindsets & Behaviors action plan is to provide an overview of the delivery of direct services in large group (LG), classroom (Class) and small group (SG) settings. This plan presents the topics addressed, and the annual calendar presents schedule of all classroom and groups activities.

 

Use the classroom and group Mindsets & Behaviors action plan to identify all ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors addressed through classroom and group activities. While some activities address multiple ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors, list the activity with the primary mindset or behavior addressed by the activity. It is not necessary to repeat activities with all ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors addressed through that activity.
