Behavior management isn't about providing students with stickers when they exhibit appropriate behaviors -- it entails much more. Authored by nationally recognized scholar and behavioral consultant Dr. John W. Maag, this book focuses primarily on students' observable behaviors and the environmental factors that affect their expression. As Maag points out, behavior management is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in education. Written in an accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, yet detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by step-by-step guidelines, real-life examples, sample forms, and visuals that assist you in implementing these techniques in the classroom. Although the techniques described are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author limits the use of technical jargon.
  • Case studies illustrate principles and techniques presented throughout the text. Specifically, scenarios of Shawna, a third-grader, and Jose, a fifth grader, are followed across most of the chapters, relating the information to developing effective interventions for the two children within a collaborative model.

  • About the Author
  • Behavior management isn't about providing students with stickers when they exhibit appropriate behaviors -- it entails much more. Authored by nationally recognized scholar and behavioral consultant Dr. John W. Maag, this book focuses primarily on students' observable behaviors and the environmental factors that affect their expression. As Maag points out, behavior management is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in education. Written in an accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, yet detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by step-by-step guidelines, real-life examples, sample forms, and visuals that assist you in implementing these techniques in the classroom. Although the techniques described are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author limits the use of technical jargon.
    • Case studies illustrate principles and techniques presented throughout the text. Specifically, scenarios of Shawna, a third-grader, and Jose, a fifth grader, are followed across most of the chapters, relating the information to developing effective interventions for the two children within a collaborative model.

    • Examples of technology related to behavior management are integrated throughout most of the book, reinforced by Tech Support boxes that provide useful tips. Topics include using online forms, reinforcing student behavior with ClassDojo, and creating functional behavior assessment (FBA) and behavior intervention forms on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
