Behavior management isn't about providing students with stickers when they exhibit appropriate behaviors -- it entails much more. Authored by nationally recognized scholar and behavioral consultant Dr. John W. Maag, this book focuses primarily on students' observable behaviors and the environmental factors that affect their expression. As Maag points out, behavior management is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in education. Written in an accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, yet detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by step-by-step guidelines, real-life examples, sample forms, and visuals that assist you in implementing these techniques in the classroom. Although the techniques described are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author limits the use of technical jargon.
