9780137085040: Behavior Management: A Practical Approach for Educators

A popular, practical, and comprehensive guide for educators regarding how to create a positive, healthy, and social classroom settings.

 

Long an established and popular text in its field, Behavior Management: A Practical Approach for Educators successfully balances theory and practice to provide readers with a comprehensive manual for creating a positive, pro-social educational environment in which all children can truly learn and enjoy that learning experience. By presenting both research and the proven practices that developed from that research, the authors are able to fully explain behavior management from four perspectives—behavioral, psychodynamic, biophysical, and environmental—in straightforward, jargon-free prose. At the same time, real-life case studies, classroom techniques, clear examples, and helpful plan designs allow preservice and inservice teachers to easily bring what they have learned into the classroom.

 

The new tenth edition has been revised and rewritten to improve its usability and readability, and includes evidence based practices that have recently been identified.  A new chapter on response-to-intervention, and its relationship to functional behavioral assessment has also been added, as well as updated information on designing individualized behavior plans.

About the Author:

Thomas M. Shea is a retired professor from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. He has worked with several co-authors over the past 40 years including Anne Bauer, the late James E. Walker, the original co-author of Behavior Management and others. During his career in special education, Tom had specialized in the education of emotionally disturbed children and youth, behavior management, parenting in special education, and camping for children and youth with disabilities. He has published  over a hundred articles in various journals and authored and co-authored ten texts in special education. He has served as founder and director of two university campus schools for children with disabilities and chairperson of the Department of Special Education and Communications Disorders at SIUE. He is thankful for a wonderful career in the service of children and youth with disabilities.

 

Annie Bauer, Professor of special education at the University of Cincinnati, has worked with Tom Shea on several texts, including an introduction to special education and methods texts for teachers of students with emotional/behavioral disorders and learning disabilities.  Dr. Bauer, formerly co-editor of Teacher Education and Special Education, has published her research in the Journal of Special Education, Exceptionality, Teaching Exceptional Children, School Psychology Quarterly, and several other leading journals.  Her teaching in higher education has recently been recognized in her recognition as a Teaching Fellow of the Academy of Teaching and Learning at the University of Cincinnati.  As well as a teacher, faculty member, and researcher, Dr. Bauer is the parent of children with various learning needs.

 

 

From the Back Cover:

 

Behavior Management: A Practical Approach for Educators, 9th Edition

James E. Walker, Thomas M. Shea, and Anne M. Bauer

 

 

Since 1980, Behavior Management: A Practical Approach for Educators has provided educators, families, and paraprofessionals with a user-friendly, readable, practical guide for applying behavior management techniques that fosters a productive, task-oriented, educational environment for all students. Blending theory with practical “how to” strategies and multiple examples drawn from school, community, and family environments, the book illustrates the field of behavior management from four perspectives–behavioral, psychodynamic, biobehavioral, and environmental–in a straightforward, jargon-free writing style, presenting a wide range of interventions.

 

The ninth edition continues this tradition of excellence by including:

  • A new chapter on functional behavioral assessment (Chapter 4)
  • Current information relating to the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) which clearly outlines teacher accountability
  • Information on the role context plays in behavior, and how parents and professionals can partner to foster positive behavior
  • More pedagogical tools such as chapter objectives and summaries, key terms, skill-building performance activities, and relevant websites in each chapter as well as chapter opening vignettes taken from the classroom that exemplify the concepts being discussed
