By Andrea Thomas
The teacher must know who is misbehaving, what the misbehavior is, and when it occurs. Never jump to conclusions when an incident involves a student who has a history of behavior problems. Always clarify the problem with the student before considering possible interventions.
-- states that when dealing with routine classroom behavior, misbehaviors should be corrected with the simplest, least intrusive intervention that will work and gradually becomes more intrusive if the least intervention does not work. This is to help keep the lesson going while handling the misbehavior.
