@COURSE = For the basic Behavior Management course. Scholarly and empirically-based, this market-leading book gives readers what they need to know to understand and use the principles and practices of applied behavioral management in the classroom. The content is presented clearly, in a friendly, accessible--even fun--manner. Chapters flow, step-by-step, through an actual behavior analysis, using classroom-based examples and practices firmly grounded in research. Content is presented in the order of decision-making by: 1) a teacher who has a student exhibiting challenging behavior in class; or, 2) a student who needs to execute a behavior-change project. This book covers: identifying target behavior, collecting and graphing data, experimental design, arranging antecedents and consequences, and generalizing behavior change. For professionals in the fields of teaching and behavior management.
