A complete guide to a paradigm-shifting model of school discipline. Disruptive students need problem-solving skills, not punishment.
Challenging students lack the skill—not the will—to behave. The authors’ evidence-based approach allows teachers to dramatically reduce challenging classroom behaviors while helping even the most disruptive students gain the skills they need to succeed inside and outside the classroom. Step-by-step guidance and exercises are provided to help K– 12 educators implement the CPS model in both general and special-education settings.
