Great Start: Supporting Classroom Management Using the Great 8
Kelsey Morris, Assistant Teaching Professor, Coordinator of the MU Teaching Fellowship Program, MU
Supporting novice teachers’ implementation of evidence based classroom-management practices is critical for their success and that of their students. This session will highlight positive behavior supports that serve as fundamental building blocks for classroom management. Eight preventive, evidence-based practices will be highlighted to help novice teachers (or any educator) rethink classroom management.
Scaffolding Self-Regulation Through Responses to Problem Behavior
Heather Hatton, Assistant Research Professor, MU
Reactive, punitive responses to problem behavior fail to assist students in developing self-regulation. This session will assist participants in developing systems of responding to problem behavior to shift from punishing and hoping to scaffolding self-regulation.
Implementing Various Social, Emotional and Behavior Programs Using a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Framework
Kaye Otten, Assistant Professor of Special Education, University of Central Missouri
Positive behavior intervention and support is often misunderstood as a specific program or curriculum. In reality, SW-PBS is an extension of applied behavior analysis, which has over 30 years of research confirming its effectiveness. SW-PBS is a framework that guides the development of evidence-based multi-tiered systems of support for behavior. This session will address how various programs such as The Leader in Me, Conscious Discipline, and Safe and Civil Schools can be used within an SW-PBS framework.
Gordon Way, Web and Data Consultant, MU
This session will provide a rationale for developing a leveled menu of alternatives to suspension and will provide examples that teach and/or restore relationships. Suggestions for developing and implementing a menu of alternatives to suspension at your school will be provided.

Designing Outside the Box Programs to Support Tier 3 Challenges
Susan James, Principal, Beacon School, Joplin Schools;
Lori Slater, MO SW-PBS Consultant, Southwest RPDC
It can be extremely challenging to meet the behavioral and emotional needs of students attending alternative programs. Students in grades K-12 come and go and often have IEPs with FBA/BIP, safety/crisis plans, psychiatric reports of varying lengths and a really bad taste in their mouth for “school” for the most part. This session will discuss how to align existing program structures (instead of reinventing the wheel) to align with the SW-PBS components and be able to achieve silver/gold recognition.
