This easy-to-read resource presents the Programwide/Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Support (PW/SW-PBS) system, a preventive, research-based approach that helps educators teach classroom behavior skills the same way they teach academic skills.

  • Differing levels of intervention to meet individual student needs
  • Clearly stated behavioral expectations
  • Consistent acknowledgment of students′ mastery of expectations
  • Systematic use of consequences for problem behavior

This user-friendly text makes the principles of PW/SW-PBS easy to apply for educators who are committed to helping young students establish positive behavioral habits that will make learning a joy for all.
