This retired 2nd Edition book (3rd Edition is available) is a must read for all general and special education teachers and paraprofessionals, though anyone who works with children would benefit from reading it. Consider it a playbook for successful behavioral management and collaborative support of a child’s educational advancement. Teachers and paraprofessionals are given communication strategies to consider when working together. With the help of the handbook, educators can avoid any confusion or contradictions of teaching methods. Managing behavior and providing academic support to students is also outlined. The book is packed with supplemental material for reuse, including a plethora of strategic checklists and chart templates for recording student data. The second edition provides more! Instructions on effective strategies are supplied with forms and charts to prepare educators. Personal checklists included in the book outline the steps necessary to achieve positive changes in behavior and information retention in students. Other forms and charts organize data to assist in making informed decisions about what techniques will have the best success. Paraprofessionals and teachers are encouraged to take full advantage of having the organizational tools already created for them.
