Even if proactive positive behavior support systems are in place, teachers will still encounter problem behavior in the classroom on a frequent basis. The teacher’s initial response to that behavior will determine, to a large extent, whether that behavior is defused or escalated. Interaction pathways are important for understanding the role of interaction between teacher and student responses. This book provides teachers with steps for defusing common behavior problems in the classroom by focusing on students behaving appropriately, delaying the teacher’s response to the student exhibiting the problem behavior, maintaining the flow of instruction, and using other intervention strategies.
