Classroom Management for All Teachers: Plans for Evidence-Based Practice (3rd Edition)
by Ennio C. Cipani
Paperback: 216 pages
List Price: $37.80
This book is based on the idea that a behavior management plan can be as effective in preventing problematic classroom behavior as it is in managing it and utilizes an evidence-based approach to solving problems. It offers easy-to-implement, research-based plans for addressing problematic classroom behavior in two key areas: on-task time/assignment completion and disruption/rule violation. The author introduces a dozen behavior management plans in non-technical language. This eliminates the need for extensive training in behavior therapy or learning theory.

- A chapter on the “beeper” system for enhancing student engagement.
- Introduces a recently developed device, the “MotivAider”–explains how it works, when it is best used, and what can be expected when it is used.
- A common format in each plan chapter (Chapters 2 -12)–Description, terms, apparatus, baseline measurement, procedures, “how it works,” additional considerations, hypothetical cases, “what if,” and forms.
- Facilitates comparison among plans–helps future teachers develop their intuitive sense for what works with which learners, and why.
- Discussion of a “dual plan” strategy for addressing disruptive behavior–Teaming a plan for stopping the disruptive behavior with one for encouraging desired behavior.
