For undergraduate and graduate courses in Behavior Management, Classroom Management, or Applied Behavior Analysis.
This comprehensive text outlines and overviews the measurement, assessment, and intervention of behavior challenges commonly found in classroom environments and beyond.
The revised sixth edition of Behavior Management: Positive Applications for Teachers outlines both school-wide strategies and individual strategies for positive behavior supports, while also focusing on how educators can develop unique behavior management strategies for individual students. This comprehensive text emphasizes functional techniques, real-world classrooms, and practical information — all while covering the legal aspects of behavioral management, assessment strategies, strategies for special populations and diverse populations, age-related behavioral concerns, and the three-tier response-to-intervention approach. Pedagogical features include classroom connections, reflections, discussion questions, and end-of-chapter references.
Chapter 9 now includes added information regarding functional assessment, a classroom-based assessment of behavior that is now required by law.
Chapter 12 is an all-new chapter on school-wide strategies for positive-behavior supports.
Chapter 13 is an all-new chapter on individual strategies for positive-behavior supports.
Chapters 10-14 now have a greater focus on the response-to-intervention approach using a three-tier model.
Updated legal information, including amendments to special education, allows administrators and teachers to keep up-to-date with continuously changing education laws and ensure that they are protecting the rights and best interests of their students.
The most current formal standardized assessment instruments allow administrators and teachers to have the most up-to-date assessment instruments to use with their students when assessing social skills and behaviors.
Revised and additional “Classroom Connection” features have been updated to be even more realistic and functional for the classroom
