Behavior Management Summary

Behavior Management: Systems, Classrooms, and Individuals by Jennifer D. Walker

Children and teens are simultaneously complex and predictable. Behavior theory and research can provide ways of predicting behaviors and designing classroom structures that benefit all students. Behavior Management: Systems, Classrooms, and Individuals is a highly readable, student-friendly textbook that meets the needs of both undergraduate and graduate teaching programs. By covering theory, systems, classrooms, and individuals, the authors have created a pragmatic resource that can be used by a range of individuals seeking reliable, evidence-based techniques integrating behavior management into effective classrooms, including both upcoming and established educators. This text uses a funnel approach to guide readers from the "big picture" down to the individual student. Part I begins by introducing the foundations of classroom management with a discussion of prominent theorists, legislation, common disabilities, and the basics of behavior. Part II provides discussion on classroom management communities, including systems of support and structure in schools and classrooms. Part III focuses on the individual to give both current and future teachers tools for building and nurturing relationships with students and understanding and responding to student behavior. The final chapter offers tools for self-reflection and managing stress and burnout. Key Features * Real-world cases and classroom examples to integrate content with practice * Chapters begin with learning objectives and key terms and end with summaries for comprehension * Bolded terms along with a comprehensive glossary to improve retention of material * "Make a Connection" boxes to synthesize content across chapters * Content connections to high-leverage practices in call-out boxes * Examples, figures, and templates to clarify and expand on key concepts * Access to a PluralPlus companion website with case studies and instructor resources, including PowerPoint slides, test banks, and sample activities
