PAT - Preferred Activity Time
"The underlying premise to PAT is this: If the children give me time to teach, then I have time to give them to play an educational game -- and I am still teaching. I use PAT as a reward for the time the class earns for positive behavior, minus the negative behavior. They earn minutes/seconds for positive, appropriate behavior, and they lose minutes/seconds for negative, inappropriate behavior. These are minutes earned for the entire class."
Informal Incentive Systems
"genuine incentives"
use incentives for the whole class for a "group concern"
Schedule Preferred Activities
Proximity of desks
