For undergraduate and Special Education or General Education graduate courses in Special Education, Behavior Management and Classroom Management, or Applied Behavior Analysis. Behavior Management: Applications for Teachers, Fifth Edition, provides a comprehensive and theoretical overview of behavior management and classroom management that includes introduction, definitions, assessment (functional and formal), strategies, numerous applications, field-based examples, and real-life case studies. The focus of the strategies presented in this text is on positive behavioral support and the prevention of challenging behavior within the classroom setting. Particular attention is paid to special populations, such as young children, teens, and students from diverse backgrounds. The text is packed with classroom connection vignettes, follow-up discussion questions per classroom connection, practical applications and examples so that the content is clear to the reader and easily applied to the classroom. The author clearly examines appropriate implementation strategies to use in a variety of settings--from classroom and recreational venues, to day care centers and in the home. often-ignored issues encountered by classroom teachers on a daily basis: diversity, assessment, legal challenges, and specific age-related concerns. Recognizing that the most-effective behavior management strategy is teaching and reinforcing appropriate behavior, this applications-targeted text again provides a thorough treatment of both the technical and the functional aspects of behavior analysis.
