There are a number of methods that can be implemented at the beginning of the school year to minimize behavioral problems within the classroom. Not all methods work for every student/teacher; however, they can help to create a structured environment in which students know how they are expected to behave.
Dr. Ross Greene discusses the effects of understanding one's students and working together towards a common goal. The author presents 3 different plans to dealing with a behavior: Plan A, Plan B, and Plan C. Plan B, the method that is ultimately preferred, consists of two different parts: Emergency Plan B and Proactive Plan B. Dr. Greene presents scenarios and rationale for the application of each given Plan, in a way that is coherent and concise. Edit Remove Move
