  5. Where do we start? As a result of attending this webinar, you will be able to: • Discussthe context in which positive classroom behavioral support (PCBS) practices are implemented • Identify critical positive classroom behavior support (PCBS) practices • Describe the key elements of effective professional development and implementation systems to support staff • Provide an overview of the VT Classroom Behavior Practice Coaching Model

  6. Goal of Teaching Behavior problems disrupt learningEngaging learning prevents behavior problems Student Achievement Classroom Management Good Teaching (Gest & Gest, 2005; Stronge, Ward and Grant, 2011)

  7. United States, we have a problem! • 12% of public school teachers leave within their first 2 years • 50% leave within the first 5 years (Boyd, Grossman, Ing, Lankford, Loeb, & Wyckoff, 2011; DeAngelis, & Presley, 2011; Feng, 2006; Henke, Zahn, & Carroll, 2001; Ingersoll, 2001; Ingersol, Merril, May, 2012; Johnson & Birkeland, 2003; Ingersoll & Smith, 2003; Kaiser & National Center for Educational Statistics, 2011; Kukla-Acevedo, 2009; Luekens, Lyter, Fox, & Changler, 2004; Smith & Ingersoll, 2004; Torres, 2012; Zabel & Zabel, 2002)

  8. Why do teachers leave? • Most consistently listed factors: • Lack of pedagogical training • School environment • Poor student behavior and motivation • Teachers consistently report: • Inadequate pre-service training on classroom management and • Lack of support and training for handling student behaviors (Boyd, Grossman, Ing, Lankford, Loeb, & Wyckoff, 2011; Chesley & Jordan, 2012; Feng, 2006; Halford, 1998; Henke, Zahn, & Carroll, 2001; Ingersoll, 2001; Ingersol, Merril, May, 2012; Johnson & Birkeland, 2003; Kukla-Acevedo, 2009; Lane, Wehby, & Barton-Arwood, 2005; Luekens, Lyter, Fox, & Changler, 2004; Stough, 2006; Torres, 2012; Zabel & Zabel, 2002) Supporting teachers in classroom PBIS is critical for our teachers, schools, and our state!

  9. What about the kids? • Students benefit when teachers implement evidence-based PCBS practices.1 • Unfortunately, we’re not there yet. • Teachers implement PCBS practices at lower rates than desired.2 • Students with challenging behavior experience even less praise, fewer opportunities to respond, more reprimands, and more negative or coercive interactions.3 1 (Simonsen, Fairbanks, Briesch, Myers, & Sugai, 2008) 2 (Reinke, Herman, & Stormont, 2012; Scott, Alter, & Hirn, 2011) 3 (e.g., Carr, Taylor & Robinson, 1991; Kauffman & Brigham, 2009; Scott et al., 2011; Sutherland & Oswald, 2005)

  10. Why aren’t we doing “it”? What do we know from the empirical literature? • Teachers typically receive little pre- or in-service training in classroom management (Begeny & Martens, 2006; Freeman, Simonsen, Briere, & MacSuga, in press; Markow, Moessner, & Horowitz, 2006; Special Education Elementary Longitudinal Study, 2001, 2002, 2004; Wei, Darling-Hammond, & Adomson, 2010) • Multi-component training packages (didactic training + coaching + performance feedback + etc.) result in desired behavior change, especially when trained skills are effective (Abbott et al., 1998; Hiralall & Martens, 1998; Madsen, Becker, & Thomas, 1968; Freeman et al., in preparation; The Metropolitan Area Child Study Research Group & Gorman-Smith, 2003; Rollins et al., 1974)

  11. *Categories not mutually exclusive (Freeman, Simonsen, et al., 2016)

  12. We can do this! • We need to support teachers’ implementation of evidence-based classroom management practices… and we can! • We know what evidence-based classroom management practices look like • We have a science to support implementation • We have tools to describe and illustrate what implementing evidence based classroom management “looks like” • So, what are we waiting for?

  13. Let’s get started! As a result of attending this webinar, you will be able to • Discussthe context in which positive classroom behavioral support (PCBS) practices are implemented • Identify critical positive classroom behavior support (PCBS) practices • Describe the key elements of effective professional development and implementation systems to support staff • Provide an overview of the VT Classroom Behavior Practice Coaching Model

  14. What needs to be in place? • The effects of CPBIS strategies are maximized by • implementing within a school-wide multi-tiered behavioral framework (MTBF)…like PBIS; • directly linking classroom and school-wide expectations and systems; • merging CPBIS strategies with effective instructional design, curriculum, and delivery; and • using classroom-based data to guide decision making • But...you can implement CPBIS even if your school does not yet have a MTBF in place.

  15. Are the foundations of effective PCBS in place? PCBS Practices Decision-making Guide: 3 Key Questions Are proactive and positive PCBS practices implemented consistently? Do data indicate that students are still engaging in problem behavior?
