Classroom management is critical to successful teaching, but many K–12 teachers struggle with it. Evidence-Based Strategies for Effective Classroom Management distills the research into easy-to-implement strategies teachers can use to promote a productive and safe learning environment. Chapters provide evidence-based guidelines for implementing classwide prevention strategies, token economies, group contingencies, and self-management interventions. Procedures for evaluating intervention effectiveness and individualizing interventions are described. Reproducible tools include 9 forms and 21 quick-reference “coach cards” that distill the key steps of each strategy. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying; purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
