Classwide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports: A Guide to Proactive Classroom Management
A vital classroom management resource, this book shows how to implement positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) in K–12 classrooms, regardless of whether PBIS is adopted schoolwide. Practical, step by step guidelines are provided for structuring the classroom environment, actively engaging students in instruction, teaching positive expectations, and establishing a continuum of strategies to reinforce positive behavior and respond to inappropriate behavior. Numerous real world examples and learning exercises are included. In a large size format with lay flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes reproducible tools for classwide PBIS planning and implementation. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
