A Review of Single-Case Studies Utilizing Self-Monitoring Interventions to Reduce Problem Classroom Behaviors
Sheffield, Kim; Waller, Raymond J.
Beyond Behavior, v19 n2 p7-13 Win 2010
Trying to manage the problem behaviors of one or two students in the classroom can take teachers away from valuable instructional time with all students. However, these problem behaviors can be reduced and student engagement increased by teachers implementing effective behavior management strategies. 2008). Because behavior management is only one requirement of a job involving multiple and complex expectations, student behavior interventions should be considered effective only if they can be implemented within the parameters and demands of the classroom. An example of such an intervention is self-monitoring. This article presents a review of single-case studies utilizing self-monitoring interventions to reduce problem classroom behaviors. This review summarizes the use of self-monitoring interventions to reduce problem behaviors. The results of this review clearly support previous evidence that self-monitoring used alone or as a component of an intervention package can be an effective intervention to reduce many problem behaviors, that self-monitoring can be used effectively in the classroom setting, and that teachers can and will implement self-monitoring strategies to positive effect. Limitations to this review are presented. (Contains 1 table.)
