Additional Book Details

Minimize problem behavior and maximize student success!

Acting-out behavior by students manifests in ways that make classroom management and academic success very challenging.

In this time- and field-tested resource, Colvin and Scott present a system for understanding acting–out behavior in terms of seven phases and correcting it before it gets in the way of student engagement and learning. The newly updated edition draws on the latest research to deliver a clear roadmap for educators to assess acting-out behavior and to design effective interventions in a clear, systematic, and achievable matter.

Rooted in applied behavior analysis, sound instructional principles, and functional behavior assessment, Colvin and Scott’s method includes:

Strategies for each phase of the acting-out cycle—from structuring the classroom, to managing agitation and escalated behavior, to recovery
Case studies that distill concrete action steps from the book’s concepts
Checklists, tools, resources, and templates for applying the book’s principles to any classroom.  

No educator should be without this definitive guide to classroom management and social skill development that sets the stage for student success in school.

"This book is a must-have resource for any classroom teacher in today’s school setting. The authors have translated decades of behavioral research into teacher relevant language and provided real-world examples of how the behavioral support concepts and strategies work."

"Colvin and Scott have developed a guide that provides teachers with the clear steps and tools to dramatically impact student behavior in any classroom."
