Designed for busy teachers and other school-based professionals, this book presents step-by-step guidelines for implementing seven highly effective strategies to improve classroom management and instructional delivery. These key low-intensity strategies are grounded in the principles of positive behavior intervention and support (PBIS), and are easy to integrate into routine teaching practice. Chapters discuss exactly how to use each strategy to decrease disruptive behavior and enhance student engagement and achievement. Checklists for success are provided, together with concise reviews of the evidence base and ways to measure outcomes. Illustrative case examples span the full K-12 grade range. Reproducible intervention tools can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Supporting research for each strategy is presented and suggestions are provided for determining if the strategy is working, is being implemented with integrity, and could be modified to enhance effects. Lane et al. do a wonderful job of linking effective behavior management to improvements in school climate and the delivery of effective instruction."--George Sugai, PhD, Professor and Carole J.
