Behavior management isn't about providing students with stickers when they exhibit appropriate behaviors -- it entails much more. Authored by nationally recognized scholar and behavioral consultant Dr. John W. Maag, this book focuses primarily on students' observable behaviors and the environmental factors that affect their expression. As Maag points out, behavior management is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in education. Written in an accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, yet detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by step-by-step guidelines, real-life examples, sample forms, and visuals that assist you in implementing these techniques in the classroom. Although the techniques described are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author limits the use of technical jargon.

Review:

"This is a comprehensive behavior management text that includes all of the traditional resources for students and instructors, as well as some innovative ones for both students and instructors."

"This text provides a great introduction into the theories and foundation of behavior while also providing strategies for changing student behavior -- through a variety of means."

"An excellent introduction to the elements of behavior and the management of behavior. Some texts forget the basics, but this text does an excellent job of laying the foundation for a thorough understanding."
