Dr. Randy Sprick's top-selling Teacher's Encyclopedia of Behavior Management is now newly revised and updated. Since 1995, thousands of teachers have come to rely on the Encyclopedia's effective interventions to help them create and maintain productive, respectful, PBIS-driven learning environments.
Comprehensive and insightful, the Teacher's Encyclopedia offers more than 500 easy-to-implement intervention plans, covering over 100 common classroom problems, including:
The new second edition incorporates a more streamlined, easy-to-reference design, a new CD with 75 ready-to-use reproducibles to make intervention implementation easy (formerly Encyclopedia Tools), and 14 new problems, including misuse of electronics, cyberbullying, gambling, and skipping class.
For each misbehavior addressed, the Teacher's Encyclopedia offers an assortment of plans that allow you to select an intervention tailored to the purpose, duration, and severity of the specific situation. A series of questions guides you through relevant considerations to help you identify the plan that best suits your situation or develop your own custom intervention.
If all students are to reach high academic and applied learning standards, their teachers must be afforded consistent opportunities to observe good practice, reflect on good practice, and repeat the procees. Works like the Teacher's Encyclopedia provide the cornerstone for this cycle—explicit examples of good practice.
