A step-by-step approach to managing your most challenging students!

Every classroom has one or two students with more challenging behavioral issues that often require a significant amount of an educator′s time. For teachers who have already tried an assortment of behavior management strategies without much success, this unique resource presents a focused, cohesive plan of eight specific interventions that are proven to work with students who are defiant, willful, and have limited self-control.

This step-by-step plan, based on separate empirical studies that verified how every step contributes to overall behavior improvement, provides solutions to specific problems that teachers commonly experience. Deliberately sequenced and designed so that each step builds on previous interventions, the techniques include:

  • Giving simple instructions
  • Using appropriate warnings
  • Handling tantrums
  • Creating behavioral contracts
  • Managing transitions
  • Preventing disruptions
  • Improving behavior outside the classroom
  • Developing effective homework routines

Filled with detailed explanations for accurate implementation to improve the likelihood of success, 8 Steps to Classroom Management Success targets the most common behavior trouble spots and provides the most effective techniques to address each.
