This course will examine traditional classroom management organizational procedures (e.g., classroom organization and daily procedures) as well Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), Response to Intervention (RtI), and Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS). Specific focus will explore and utilize principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) within applied settings in local K-12 public general education classrooms to address common off-task behaviors teachers face. Students will conduct classroom observations, design a classroom support intervention, collect and analyze data, and understand the impact of behavioral principles to make data-based decisions to positively address challenging student behaviors within K-12 general education classrooms.
