Comprehensive Behavior Management (2nd ed.)

Individualized, Classroom, and Schoolwide Approaches

by Ronald C. Martella, J. Ron Nelson, Nancy E. Marchand-Martella, Mark O'Reilly

Comprehensive Behavior Management: Schoolwide, Classroom, and Individualized Approaches supports teachers in preventing management problems and responding to unwanted behavior when it occurs in classrooms. The text offers a comprehensive presentation of three levels of behavior management strategies: individual, classroom, and schoolwide, all three of which contribute to a positive learning environment. A social learning emphasis in which human behavior is viewed within an ecological framework is integrated throughout the text. Application of this information is supported by a range of pedagogical devices such as vignettes, examples, strategies, and activities to show teachers how to manage behavior effectively. The analysis and applications in this text cover both general education and special education strategies.

“I was impressed with the organization of the text and I enjoyed the vignettes and the vignettes revisited sections. I was also impressed that a chapter on school safety was included. This is a current challenge and it needs to be addressed.”
