Mainstreaming and other inclusion policies have greatly increased the number of students with behavior and adjustment problems in regular elementary and middle-school classrooms. How can teachers and other school professionals most effectively motivate these children to improve their skills, attitudes, and coping abilities? Providing research-based strategies for helping students with problems succeed in school, this unique volume integrates the latest research on child development, educational psychology, and the literature provided by treatment professionals. The book also includes the results of the Classroom Strategy Study (CSS), a comprehensive study which examines strategies that teachers have used--both successfully and unsuccessfully--in dealing with a broad range of student problems.

"Teachers will rush to read Jere Brophy's long-awaited Treating Problem Students.... the book will hopefully sensitize teachers to the underlying roots of student problem behaviors and encourage more differentiated and ultimately more effective ways to facilitate student learning and development in the classroom."
-Rhona Weinstein, PhD

"An innovative, thoughtful, and theoretically grounded text that would be helpful to both beginning and experienced teachers.. ..The problems Brophy selects are real, compelling problems faced by all teachers in all environments. The research base for his work is most impressive, and the melding of theory and practice throughout the text is a major strength. This text makes an important contribution to the field."
-Leigh Chiarelott, PhD
