Group contingencies—which allow students to earn a reward due to the behavior of one or more students in a group—have a long record of helping teachers manage their classrooms effectively. In this R2P podcast, publications manager Lorraine Sobson speaks with researcher Howard Wills about how the group contingency intervention CW-FIT (class-wide function-related intervention team) can fill the need for a tiered classroom management system that can address the needs of all students. Howard co-authored the article “Student and Teacher Outcomes of the Class-Wide Function-Related Intervention Team Efficacy Trial,” which appeared in Exceptional Children.
