"This informative book provides an excellent solution to a very common challenge facing classroom consultants--how to persuade teachers to implement research-based strategies to facilitate behavior change. The Classroom Check-Up incorporates much of what we know about good consultation and good teaching into a concise and straightforward method of implementation. The interview examples, checklists, and observation forms are especially helpful. This book can be used by school psychologists, teachers, and other classroom consultants who regularly work with school staff on classroom management and behavior concerns. I recommend this book for graduate-level classes in consultation and collaboration techniques.
