Innovative Reward for Positive Behavior
Students get a chance to exhibt good behavior at a formal lunch
A Women of Woodside book group prepared and served a 5 couse meal at CIL, allowing the students to demonstrate their social skills. The meal included chicken marsala, a frittata appetizer, an elegant soup, an antipasto salad, and a fruit tart with peaches and blueberries.
Ms. Renee Beaty wanted to reward the students for the work they have done at CIL and also tying it into a social skills objective. Ms. Beaty did bring learning opportunities in other ways for the students. She received the recipes in advance and turned them into lesson plans in English, math, and other content areas. The students also did landscaping at CIL, cutting some hydreangeas for the table flower arrangements. "This luncheon was one of the most rewarding experiences that I have had at CIL," said Ms. Renee Beaty.
This was a collaborative effort between Tammy Watson, career specialist; Molly Campbell, therapeutic counselor; and Renee Beaty, learning strategies teacher. Thanks to Mr. Osborne for his support.
