How can schools create safe, well-supervised classroom environments while also teaching students skills for managing their behavior on their own? This invaluable guide presents a framework for achieving both of these crucial goals. It shows how to balance external reinforcements such as positive behavior supports with social-emotional learning interventions. Evidence-based techniques are provided for targeting the cognitive and emotional processes that underlie self-discipline, both in classroom instruction and when correcting problem behavior. Describing how to weave the techniques together into a comprehensive schoolwide disciplinary approach, the book includes over a dozen reproducible forms, checklists, and assessment tools. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying. This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.
