Overview

Combines a thorough grounding in research with realistic case studies and dozens of examples to demonstrate behavior management theory as it applies to both general and special education settings. Blending theory with "how to's," the authors explain the field of behavior management from four perspectives—behavioral, psychodynamic, biophysical, and environmental—in straightforward, jargon-free prose that instantly engages future teachers in time-honored, research-supported techniques and strategies for encouraging desired behavior and discouraging undesired behavior. The goal? A practical guide to creating a peaceful, task-focused educational environment in which children can truly learn—and enjoy that learning. Includes discussion of the most-recent federal legislation governing the education of learners with disabilities. Incorporates the latest developments in the field, especially the integrative perspective and behavior management/educational issues that affect the implementation of text-advocated strategies. Coverage of four models of human behavior—Psychodynamic, biophysical, environmental, and behavioral provides a rationale not only for the behavior itself, but also for the text-suggested techniques for managing it. Detailed discussion of the role of educators in biophysical interventions; plus the necessity to respond to changes wrought by pupils' medication. Material on the impact of ethical, cultural, and linguistic diversity on behavior management. For future educators of general or special education.
