Book Description

Revised with an eye toward the ever-evolving research base undergirding Positive Behavior Support (PBS) and related approaches, Preventing Challenging Behavior in Your Classroom, Second Edition focuses on real-world examples and practical strategies to prevent and reduce behavior problems and enhance student learning.

Featuring a new chapter on culturally responsive PBS, this Second Edition helps readers understand disparities in punitive responses and identify strategies to promote equitable, positive school discipline. Teachers will be able to smartly appraise the efficacy of a range of classroom management practices with the help of updated standards, function-based strategies to differentiate evidence-based from questionable or harmful practices, and resources and tools for evaluation.

Written in engaging, easy-to-understand language, this book is an invaluable resource for pre- and in-service educators looking to strengthen their understanding and implementation of equitable PBS.
