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 a very accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, but detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by a range of step-by-step guidelines, sample forms, charts, graphs, and illustrations that assist teachers in implementing the techniques. Although the techniques described in the book are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author limits the use of technical jargon and infuses real-life examples and case studies that clarify and illuminate the presentation.

Why do children do the things they do? What can teachers do to manage it all? While there is not a simple method for understanding and managing all behaviors or all children, teachers can give young children the social and emotional tools needed to grow and thrive on their own. Developed and tested in the classroom, Beyond Behavior Management, is a strength-based approach to guiding and managing young children's behavior by helping them build and use essential life skills—attachment, collaboration, self-regulation, adaptability, contribution, and belonging—into the daily life of the early childhood classroom. As a result, children will learn to exhibit more pro-social behaviors, work better as a community, and become excited and active learners. This edition includes two new chapters and content reflecting early learning standards, new research, cultural diversity, and strategies to strengthen the home-school connection. Discussion and reflection questions, exercises, journal assignments, child profile templates, a planning worksheet, and sample scripts are also included.

This publication presents a system of proactive classroom management for use in elementary school, grades K-6. Characteristics of the proactive concept are described as: (1) planning for prevention rather than reaction to behavior problems; (2) considering the classroom as a total process of facilitating achievement as well as appropriate behavior; (3) dealing with the entire class rather than with individual student behavior; and (4) defining behavior management as an entire system utilizing the principles of behavior theory rather than isolated techniques. An overview is provided of behavioral principles that will give teachers a broad-based understanding of why children behave and misbehave. A classroom management system is presented based on behavioral principles. The book is organized into eight chapters: (1) The Behavior Management Hierarchy; (2) Classroom Environment; (3) Scheduling; (4) Affecting Antecedents: Rules and Routines; (5) Reinforcement Strategies; (6) Parental Involvement; (7) Using Consequences To Affect Behaviors; and (8) Concluding Remarks, consisting of a checklist to help in assessing the classroom and for troubleshooting behavior problems.

Pressure on teachers is increasing. Bureaucrats, economists, parent groups and students are all placing extra emphasis on teacher accountability and performance. Adding to this pressure are rising concerns about student behaviour. This difficult problem is having a marked effect on the stress levels and self-esteem of teachers.

This book examines the intersection of Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) and Industrial and Organizational Psychology (I/O Psychology). It argues that, whilst OBM and I/O Psychology have developed simultaneously, they have done so with minimal integration. I/O Psychology, a somewhat older field, has evolved to become widely accepted, both influencing management and social sciences and being affected by them. It can be viewed as a research-oriented subject that is closely aligned with human resources functions. With regards to the intersection of I/O Psychology with OBM, some practices are more closely related than others; and of those that are related, some are relatively consistent with OBM practices, while others are very inconsistent. Most I/O Psychology interventions focus on many people simultaneously, seeking to ensure that one intervention affects multiple employees as a cost-efficient way to improve organizations, while OBM is usually better than I/O Psychology at improving the behaviors of individuals and smaller groups or workers. This book provides a framework for understanding differences and similarities between I/O Psychology and OBM, and as such is an innovative compendium for students, scholars, applied psychologists, and human resource specialists. It was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Organizational Behavior Management.
Cases in Behavior Management provides realistic, context-rich narratives of behavior problems and social conflicts occurring in school-based and home/community settings. Thoughtfully selected, cases reflect four environments (school classroom, school nonclassroom, home, and community) and address a broad range of ages and issues. Cases fall into two types-professional interventions and parent/teacher collaborations-and span across levels of development and forms of classroom organization. Each case consists of two parts (a quick description of the problem incident and background information concerning the individuals and context) and provides an excellent springboard for discussion, thought and debate.
This book is a call to educate rather than control. It shows how to create a noncoercive behavior management program in which students learn to intentionally use their emotions to guide them in making responsible, need-fulfilling choices. Covers areas such as learning; interpersonal relationships; problem solving; and adapting to the complex demands of growth, development, and change. The appendix presents seven lessons to give students a basic understanding of their behavior -- emphasizing that all behavior is purposeful and that all behavior is chosen.
Here is an intriguing look at the basic principles of organizational behavior management and their relationship to the more traditional psychological/managerial characterizations of human behavior modification within organizations. Organizational behavior management specialists explore the applications and issues regarding behavioral procedures in the public sector and examine the recent success of behavior modification as it has been used in business, industry, and government. Supervisors and managers in business, industry, and government will find these principles and illustrations readily applicable to their organizations.
