This session will discuss effective classroom practices proven to reduce challenging behavior and will describe how teachers can increase their usage rates of these practices. These practices should be used classroomwide, intensified to support small-group instruction or amplified further for individual students. Using effective classroom practices can help teachers capitalize on instructional time and decrease disruptions, which is crucial as schools are being held to greater  academic- and social-accountability measures.
