This training series provides participants with a systematic approach to understand behavior and explore classroom-based interventions for students exhibiting mild to moderate misbehaviors. Facilitators will introduce selected Tier 1 interventions from the book Early-Stage Interventions: Behavior Strategies for Every Teacher (Sprick et al, 2020). Presenters will also introduce the Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management and how to use a variety of interventions through an efficient problem-solving meeting process. Facilitators will provide numerous examples and modeling of critical skills and interventions. Participants will have opportunities to collaborate with each other in order to practice skills. In addition, time will be given for each participant to reflect and plan for implementation of the interventions within their own settings.
Who Should Attend:
- Identify and implement selected classroom-based behavior interventions for mild to moderate misbehavior from the book, Early-Stage Interventions: Behavior Strategies for Every Teacher.
