Description

For courses in Classroom Management and Behavior Management.

 

This popular case-based text applies behavior management principles to classroom teaching, with an emphasis on analyzing behavior management as an instructional problem.

Managing Classroom Behavior summarizes principles of good instruction, the acting-out cycle, and how to work with students, other teachers, and parents. Based on empirical research and illustrated with numerous examples, this text gives students practice in applying principles of behavior management through the analysis of actual case studies, self-questioning, and reflection. The fifth edition features a new chapter on planning for the school year and managing the physical environment; a new feature which makes direct and explicit links between chapters in Part I and specific cases in Part II; revised and updated case studies, with the inclusion of all case descriptions now in the text; reorganized inclusion of APA references and the APA Style Guide; and all chapters have gone through a thorough revision process. This concise, clearly written case-based text is appropriate for both general and special educators in training or in service.
