Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what they need to understand using the principles and practices of applied behavioral management in the classroom. The content is presented clearly, in a friendly, accessible–even fun–manner. The eighth edition uses classroom-based examples and practices firmly grounded in research. Content is presented in the order of decision-making by a teacher who has a student exhibiting challenging behavior in class or a student who needs to execute a behavior-change project. The text covers identifying target behavior, collecting and graphing data, functional assessment, experimental design, arranging antecedents and consequences, generalizing behavior change and discusses the importance of ethical considerations in using applied behavior analysis in the classroom.

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:
For over 25 years, the author team of Alberto and Troutman has written a technically sound, systematically organized and highly-readable text for students of applied behavior analysis, behavior management, and behavior modification courses. The text continues its tradition of aiding students in their understanding of the core concepts of applied behavior analysis, how to apply these concepts in the classroom and alternative settings, and to use the tools and methods appropriately and ethically. Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what they need to understand using the principles and practices of applied behavioral management in the classroom in a friendly, accessible–even fun–manner. The newly revised Applied Behavior Analysis for Teachers, 8/e, does not disappoint.
