If you’ve read CHAMPS or attended a CHAMPS workshop, the Planner is the perfect complement. It will help you implement the knowledge you’ve gained. The CHAMPS Teacher Planner can help you maintain an effective classroom management plan!


The CHAMPS Teacher Planner includes abbreviated information on how to get the year started by establishing a classroom vision, developing Guidelines for Success, writing classroom rules, clarifying CHAMPS expectations, and creating a classroom management plan.


At two- to four-week intervals, CHAMPS activities are embedded in the planner to help teachers observe, reflect, and continuously improve their classroom management strategies. Activities include:

Double-Check • Expectations and Behavior

Evaluate • Ratio of Interactions

Analyze • Patterns of Misbehavior

Monitor • On-Task Behavior

Connect • Motivate Individuals

Include • Opportunities to Respond

Identify Targets • Goal Setting

A reproducible master accompanies many CHAMPS activities to help teachers complete their tasks.


These activities will help individual teachers, teams of teachers, school staffs, or districts improve student responsibility and motivation throughout the school year. Planner activities can be used on their own, but are best used to preview and/or review the in-depth procedural knowledge learned from reading CHAMPS.
