An effective classroom management plan will help teachers engage most of their students, but every classroom has one or two students with more challenging behavioural issues that often require a significant amount of an educator's time. This jargon-free, easy-to-read book guides teachers through the process of helping these students become positive, contributing learners.
Based on sound psychological principles and more than 10 years of empirical evidence, this resource provides general and special education teachers with an eight-step plan for responding to challenging behaviours, including:
- Giving simple instructions
- Using appropriate warnings
- Handling tantrums
- Creating behavioural contracts
- Managing transitions
- Preventing disruptions
- Improving behaviour outside the classroom
- Developing effective homework routines
Filled with suggestions for adapting each of the steps and practical examples that illustrate potential problems that may arise during the interventions, 8 Steps to Classroom Management Success offers a coherent system for creating a positive learning environment for all students.
