Teaching behavior: Managing classrooms through effective teaching

Teaching behavior: Managing classrooms through effective teaching offers 296 pages of guidance for teachers who want to do more than just react to behaviors. Written by a professor in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville, the book includes thoughts on why instruction is the foundation for all student behavior. It offers tools for managing all types of students and classrooms including self-assessment checklists and discussion questions and more.

The book is written in three sections: Behavior and Instruction, The Daily Grind, and Individualized Strategies. In the first section, best practices for effective instruction are covered along with thoughts on behavior and its purposes. The second section covers classroom arrangements and planning for and presenting instruction along with providing consequences for behavior while the third section offers strategies for monitoring behavior and for handling students with more serious behavior issues. Each chapter begins with discussion questions to set the tone and content. Within each chapter, the author offers short lists of further readings for follow-up research after important points.
