Using the Good Behavior Game in an Inclusive Classroom
Lastrapes, Renée E.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v49 n4 p225-229 Mar 2014
Students with emotional or behavioral disorders (EBD) are being included to a greater degree in the general education classroom. Due to the least restrictive environment mandate in the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, more students with EBD are being taught in inclusive settings. As a result, general education teachers need a variety of behavior management techniques in their toolbox to effectively instruct all of their students. This adaptation of the Good Behavior Game is an interdependent group-contingency technique that helps manage classroom behavior and integrate students with EBD into the general education class. It can be used as a way for special and general educators to collaborate successfully in general education inclusive classrooms.
