Description



BEYOND BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION,4E



Beyond Behavior Modificationis a proactive approach to cognitive and behavior management of students in all grades in school. Much of the material in this popular text has been updated. Teachers appreciate the case studies, which explore the problems of particular students and follow through to successful behavior and cognitive management outcomes.



Introductory chapters include proactive behavior-management strategies and a comparison of popular approaches to behavior management. Traditional behavior modification and current social learning theory approaches are explored through easy-to-read examples and case studies. Strategies include improving social skills, teaching self-motivation, and changing belief systems of both students and teachers.



The chapter on student performance data provides guidance for analyzing current behavior problems, setting goals for improvement in student behaviors, and improving the way students think about the problems they experience.



Each chapter begins with objectives. Multiple and brief chapter assessments called Checkpoints allow readers to test their understanding of the material as it is read. Concrete examples, helpful tips, and step-by-step instructions add everyday practicality to the text. This book is ideal for use as a resource for teachers or as an adopted text in basic or advanced behavior-management courses.
