Teachers and administrators often struggle with offering a balance of quality instruction while establishing behavior management systems that result in all students having success. In this session, a review of effective instructional strategies and procedures for the delivery of high-quality instruction for students across all settings will be provided. The focus will be on evidence-based interventions applicable to students of all instructional levels and in all settings that include direct instruction, establishing instructional control, teaching cooperation skills as well as communication skills and academic content. Emphasis will be placed on effective instruction methodologies, school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS), token economies, behavior contracts, self-monitoring checklists, implementation of positive behavior support plans and behavioral skills training for increasing staff performance.
