Overview

Filled with humor, memorable examples, and vivid metaphors, this book will be every teacher's favorite guide to classroom management! Behavior expert and former teacher Tim Knoster-the dynamic speaker whose workshops have inspired thousands of teachers across the country-offers research-proven information for preventing everyday behavior problems in any K-12 classroom. Teachers will use the down-to-earth advice year after year to: decipher the motives behind mild to moderate behavior challenges, build rapport with students while maintaining boundaries, establish clear expectations for behavior, reinforce expected behavior throughout the school day, continually assess the classroom climate, provide individualized intervention to students with challenging behavior.

Motivating and enlightening, this book will give teachers an "I can do that" attitude toward classroom management-and the practical advice they need to build positive, effective learning environments.

Meet the Author

Tim Knoster, Ed.D., is an associate professor in the School of Education, College of Professional Studies, at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and also serves as Executive Director of the international Association for Positive Behavior Support. Dr. Knoster (or Tim, as he prefers) has been involved with preservice and inservice teacher training since the mid- 1980s. He has worn many hats throughout his career, including that of classroom teacher, Director of Student Support Services and Special Education, and Principal Investigator on federal projects focused on classroom and student-centered behavior intervention and support. In addition, Dr. Knoster has extensive experience in providing professional development for classroom teachers throughout the United States and has been the recipient of various awards for his endeavors in this regard. He has extensively published manuscripts, training materials, and other practitioner-oriented resources concerning the linkages among research, policy, and practice in the classroom. Most important, Dr. Knoster has an uncanny ability to help teachers interpret the research literature on behavioral matters in a way that enables them to translate that same research into practical strategies and approaches in their classrooms. Along these same lines, Dr. Knoster has a national reputation of being a dynamic advocate, leader, and presenter concerning classroom management and student-centered behavior intervention and support.
