Classwide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Do you have students in your classroom with challenging behaviors?
Aside from a few strategies that work occasionally, are you looking for a systemic approach to classroom management that has the potential to change your environment in a very positive way? PBIS may be the answer for you, like it is for so many teachers across the nation. This book provides educators with the “why” as well as the “what” of PBIS. It introduces empirically supported practices that can help establish PBIS in your classroom – and perhaps in your school. It teaches you how to maximize structure in your classroom and how to actively engage students in your instruction, as well as how to establish, define, teach and prompt for your classroom expectations.
