Reducing Behavior Problems in the Classroom
The U.S. Department of Education has developed a new guide for elementary school educators and school and district-level administrators that offers prevention, implementation, and school-wide strategies that can be used to reduce problematic behavior that interferes with the ability of students to attend to and engage fully in instructional activities. The guide is part of their “What Works Clearinghouse,” which is a source of scientific evidence for what works in education. To access the guide, go to: http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/wwc/pdf/practiceguides/behavior_pg_092308.pdf (PDF)
