The ins and outs of positive behavioral interventions and supports
MetadataShow full item record
Teachers and administrators have been utilizing the most effective ways to interact with students, support their learning, and help them become lifelong learners for years. Unfortunately, there is not a magical way to fix every challenge that arises in schools across the country. However, certain practices have been shown to be more effective when used correctly. Positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) seek to define, teach, and support appropriate student behaviors to create a positive learning environment where problem behaviors are decreased and academic performance is increased. The information in this paper seeks to define the components required to implement and maintain PBIS in a school through the research and findings from other researchers and literature. Additional literature reviewed in the paper discusses the effectiveness of PBIS in schools in the areas of behavior and academics.
