This book presents everything needed to design and implement Daily Behavior Report Cards (DRCs), a flexible and dynamic system for promoting positive student behaviors and overcoming barriers to learning. DRCs offer a way to reward K-12 students for achieving clearly defined goals while building school-home collaboration. Teachers can implement the authors' evidence-based approach in just minutes a day, and it is fully compatible with multi-tiered systems of support. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes over a dozen reproducible forms. The authors' website features additional useful tools for charting student progress, plus downloadable versions of the reproducible forms. This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.
