ASU Open Courses

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports for the Classroom will provide teachers with evidence-based strategies to improve classroom behavior management using positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS). The first part of the course will assist teachers in designing a classroom environment that prevents problem behaviors from occurring and encourages appropriate behavior in the classroom. The second part of the course will provide a guide for understanding why students engage in problematic behaviors and how that knowledge can be used to develop individualized interventions to address these behaviors. Teachers will assess their classroom to identify areas of strength and areas in need of improvement. Finally, they will develop an action plan for their classroom, integrating information that they have learned throughout the course. Learning will be facilitated through videos, readings, websites, and case studies.
