9780023012648: Applied Behavior Analysis for Teachers: Influencing Student Performance

@COURSE = For the basic Behavior Management course. Scholarly and empirically-based, this market-leading book gives readers what they need to know to understand and use the principles and practices of applied behavioral management in the classroom. The content is presented clearly, in a friendly, accessible—even fun—manner. Chapters flow, step-by-step, through an actual behavior analysis, using classroom-based examples and practices firmly grounded in research. Content is presented in the order of decision-making by: 1) a teacher who has a student exhibiting challenging behavior in class; or, 2) a student who needs to execute a behavior-change project. This book covers: identifying target behavior, collecting and graphing data, experimental design, arranging antecedents and consequences, and generalizing behavior change. For professionals in the fields of teaching and behavior management.

From the Publisher:

This widely-adopted introductory text presents behavior analysis principles hand-in-hand with a wealth of examples showing their practical classroom applications. To give students a better understanding of how behavior analysis actually works, the sequence of chapters follows that of an actual behavior analysis project; and actual data recording sheets, charts, and tables are provided in the text. The fictional "Professor Grundy" helps keep material lively and relevant by responding to objections to behavior modification, using shaping techniques in his own classroom, and instructing students in writing behavioral objectives.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: To give readers a better understanding of how behavior analysis actually works, the sequence of chapters follows that of an actual behavior analysis project; and actual data recording sheet, charts, and tables are provided in the text. The fictional "Professor Grundy" helps keep material lively and relevant by responding to objections to behavior modification, using shaping techniques in his own classroom, and instructing students in writing behavioral objectives. Key Topics: Both principles and techniques are included and thoroughly covered. Principles covered include increasing and maintaining appropriate behavior, decreasing inappropriate behavior, stimulus control for new skills acquisition, and generalization of learning; techniques presented are preparation of objectives, data collection, graphing, and monitoring/interpretation of behavior change. There is a strong chapter on applied settings exploring community, health care, and school settings in which applied behavior analysis is used; and showing how text procedures and techniques are put into practice in a variety of real situations. A section explores the contemporary, non- aversive Functional Analysis approach to analysis and reduction of behavioral problems. A full chapter on instruction pulls together all of the instructional applications for behavior modification in a single, comprehensive discussion.
