RESPONDING TO STUDENT BEHAVIOR: Preparing for Teaching
On average, teachers lose half of their teaching day due to classroom disruptions. It is essential, therefore, that teachers have a plan to respond to behavior in the same way they have a plan for teaching content.
Responding to Student Behavior presents a clear and positive four-level system. By practicing and following this system, teacher candidates will find they are more confident and better prepared to respond to behavior in their own classrooms.
This 71-page book is designed for current teachers and teacher candidates enrolled in classes with a practicum or field experience (such as Theory to Practice) as well as for those who are student teaching. The text provides opportunities for observation, reflection and practice of the content presented.
