Overview

This interesting, innovative guide's basic idea is that behavior management plans can be as effective in preventing problem behavior as they are in correcting it. The book offers easy-to-use, research-based plans for addressing problem behavior in two key areas: on-task time/assignment completion and disruption/rule violation. The author introduces a dozen behavior management plans in non-technical language that eliminates the need for extensive training in behavior therapy or learning theory. Even a novice can translate the book's concepts quickly, and effectively use the strategies in this helpful book. Topics covered in this helpful and highly original book are covered in an easy-to-read yet comprehensive manner. These topics include: introduction to classroom management, plans for keeping on task and completing assignments, and plans for reducing or eliminating disruptive and rule-violation behavior. The book doesn't leave the reader hanging; the step-by-step guidelines for effective classroom management really work. The techniques discussed include: the beeper system, break cards, response cards, beat-the-clock games, the good behavior game, behavioral contracting, the disruptive incident barometer, time-outs, and relaxation training. An exciting and appropriate resource for teachers in all situations; this book can also be useful for parents as a tool at home.
