Summary: 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-co ...show morentrol. 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 these techniques. Although the techniques described in the book are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author has limited the use of technical jargon throughout his presentation.

Benefits:

  • As opposed to other texts that present information on principles of behavior (Chapter 4), techniques for recording behavior (Chapter 6), and methods for graphing behavior (Chapter 7) as being highly technical and dense, Maag infuses compelling examples and uses jargon-free prose to create a "user-friendly" text.
  • NEW! Based on reviewer suggestions, the second edition has been streamlined for increased clarity.
  • NEW! A new free companion web site includes templates for many of the sample forms used in the book for convenient access and printing; Links to the most valuable web sites on behavior management techniques; an array of electronic resources for students and professors; and InfoTrac® College Edition search terms.
  • The intervention technique chapters (Chapters 8-14) describe in detail how to implement behavior modification techniques. Each chapter includes "how-to" lists, charts, graphs, and illustrations.
  • Maag places an emphasis on positive and proactive behavior management, as opposed to other texts which assume that behavior can be explained and manipulated through medical, pharmacological, or genetic treatments.
  • Includes an entire Chapter on Self-Monitoring (Chapter 12, "Teaching Self Management").
  • Students and professors alike have praised Maag's personal and friendly approach to implementing behavior management strategies
  • NEW! New chapter-ending activities require students to observe a specific action or behavior in a classroom, or to use actual tools, such as observation charts, interval recording sheets, discussed in the text.
  • NEW! New end-of-chapter summaries help students reinforce key concepts introduced in that chapter.
  • NEW! Chapter 4 (Basic Principles of Behavior) has been reorganized for increased clarity. New visual aids have also been added to this chapter.
  • NEW! New coverage of writing behavioral support plans has been added to Chapter 7 (Functional Assessment).
