"They Just Won't Listen to Me": A Teacher's Guide to Positive Behavioral Interventions
Rafferty, Lisa A.
Childhood Education, v84 n2 p102 Win 2007
It has been estimated that as much as 20 percent of the school population may have some form of unidentified emotional or behavioral disorder; at some point in time, nearly all children exhibit problem behaviors. These behaviors often interfere with the learning environment and make it nearly impossible for teaching and learning to take place until stability and control are established. This article discusses five strategies for dealing with classroom behavior problems demonstrated in the elementary grades. While these strategies are far from exhaustive in nature, they might provide elementary teachers with ideas for more effective classroom management. (Contains 4 online resources.)
