About the eBook

Powerful behavioral interventions to help your students succeed


Behavioral problems can disrupt learning for the whole classroom if not managed properly, which is often a matter of frustrating trial and error. Just in time, this must-have guide brings you essential strategies to improve student learning by supporting good behavior rather than punishing bad behavior.


In Fifteen Positive Behavior Strategies to Increase Academic Success, Beverley Johns draws on forty years of experience working with the most challenging students to deliver a set of fifteen practical intervention techniques that can be applied to virtually any situation in both pull-out and inclusive classrooms.


Backed by research and case studies, each chapter is brief and to-the-point with a focus on one specific behavioral intervention technique. Insights include


  • Incorporating student interests in classroom activities
  • Understanding why the student is misbehaving to plan an appropriate intervention
  • Understanding how stimulation impacts performance


With these proven tactics, you’ll be able to act quickly, equitably, and effectively to ensure your classroom isn’t held back by problem behavior.
