This practical resource gives teachers techniques for dealing immediately with classroom behavior problems and developing more effective discipline procedures over time. Included are dozens of useful management forms, letters, and record sheets, plus a quick and easy guide to solving 42 specific misbehaviors. Topics new to this edition: the high-risk student and differentiated instruction; punishment consequences-- guidelines and misconceptions; anxiety, proactive attitudes, and behavior contracts; and troubleshooting specific problems such as excuses, swearing, talking back, cheating, suicide threats, hypochondria, passive resistance, stealing, skipping class, and vandalism. The accompanying DVD features Dr. Sprick presenting two of the most crucial tasks from the book: how to respond to and reinforce positive behavior rather than reacting to negative behavior (from Chapter 6, "Motivation: Enhance Students' Desire to Succeed"); and how to finalize your classroom management plan and communicate that plan to students on the first day (from Chapter 7, "Preparation and Launch: Pull It All Together for the First Day").
