2020-2021 Behavior Intervention Series: Building your toolbox for the classroom

This two-day training provides participants with a systematic approach to understand behavior and explore classroom-based interventions for students exhibiting mild to moderate misbehaviors. Facilitators will introduce selected Tier 1 interventions from the book Early-Stage Interventions: Behavior Strategies for Every Teacher (Sprick et al, 2020). Presenters will also introduce the Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management and how to use a variety of interventions through an efficient problem-solving meeting process. Facilitators will provide numerous examples and modeling of critical skills and interventions. Participants will have opportunities to collaborate with each other in order to practice skills. In addition, time will be given for each participant to reflect and plan for implementation of the interventions within their own settings. Learning Objectives: Day 1: Identify and implement selected classroom-based behavior interventions for mild to moderate misbehavior from the book, Early-Stage Interventions: Behavior Strategies for Every Teacher. Consider implementation of the interventions with their student(s). Day 2: Increase understanding about functions of student chronic misbehavior. Learn to develop a brief intervention plan that addresses function and manipulates STOIC variables. Explore and practice using the Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management. Practice the 25-Minute Meeting Plan for teams in order to engage in efficient problem solving. The training content is meant for all pre-k through high school educators (general education teachers, special education teachers, support staff, and administrators).
