It offers easy-to-implement, research-based plans for addressing problematic classroom behavior in two key areas: on-task time/assignment completion and disruption/rule violation. The author introduces a dozen behavior management plans in non-technical language. This eliminates the need for extensive training in behavior therapy or learning theory.
