Positive Behavior Support at the Targeted Group Level
A few schools have asked us to do presentations on our Corwin Books. This book focuses on evidence based interventions at the targeted group level. Participants would have a copy of this book which was purchased by the institution bringing in the speaker. Since Sage Publishing owns the copyright to this book, we cannot give away free copies of the booklet. This training is just for those groups who have purchased the book and desire to have one of the authors discuss the contents and delve into further detail behind each of the strategies. These are Tier Two Strategies in the book:
- Increasing Structure and Predictability in the Classroom Through Behavior Management
- Which Came First: The Behavior or the Academic Struggle?
- Which Students Need Booster Shots?
- What Do You do with the Students Swinging from the Chandeliers?
- Fail to Plan: Plan to Fail-What Are Your Lines of Defense?
- How Do You Get Students to Prefer Good Behavior?
- How Do You Engage and Connect With Students?
- How Do You Get Funk Sway in the Classroom?
- Why is Change so Hard?
- How Do We Change the Consequences?
- What Are Function Based Interventions?
- How Do I Follow the Navigational Map?
- Sample Intervention Forms

Participants will leave this session with a better understanding of the function behind the behavior. First, participants will learn the triggers that possibly set off tier two behaviors and how to ameliorate those conditions. The most important task will be defining the behavior in measurable and observable terms and then determining the function behind the behavior that is being communicated. Once these are established, participants will leave with an understanding of revising the environment to set the students up for success, teaching replacement behaviors, and reframing our own responses so we feed the replacement behavior rather than the targeted behavior.
