    class dojo

    Class Dojo

    Class Dojo is the fasting growing classroom management system in the country with one in every three teachers implementing the program in their classroom. Research shows that the classic "clip/color chart" is ineffective for collecting student behavior data and unsuccessful to correct or change behavior AND promote positive behaviors. My goal is to use Class Dojo to motivate my students to do the "right thing" and reward them for their positive behaviors. It also allows me to know when and why a student is not on tasking or making a good choice. It allows me to help the student more efficiently. I am ALWAYS happy to answer any questions about Class Dojo and the best part about Class Dojo is I am accessible any time right through the app.
