Student behavior can have complex sources. The better a teacher understands those sources the better the student can be supported. This week’s FREE tool is a brief chart identifying areas where skill-based deficits may underlie certain unproductive or disruptive behaviors. The tool comes from CEC’s “When Behavior Makes Learning Hard: Positive Steps for Changing Student Behavior,” a brief and accessible workbook for teachers who want to change student behavior through positive instruction.
