This highly practical reference is organized around the problem behaviors that K-6 teachers see as the greatest barriers to student success–and the positive behaviors they value the most. Of particular value to educators, the book matches proven intervention techniques to specific target behaviors. Hill M. Walker presents exemplary strategies for managing such classroom challenges as defiance, low motivation, and aggression. He also reviews ways to build all students; skills for following directions, staying on task, coping with frustration, getting along with peers, and more. The book includes illustrative case examples and a section that clearly explains key principles of behavior management.
