Classroom Behavior Strategies

Classroom Behavior Strategies


[WLOs: 1, 2] [CLO: 3]

Even when you proactively predict your students’ behaviors and plan for every situation, problems will still arise that need to be managed. Therefore, it is important to be able to accurately identify adverse or interfering behaviors and proactively implement research-based practices to meet the needs of your student(s) and not disrupt the flow of instruction and the overall learning process. This assignment provides an opportunity for you to research and identify evidence-based practices that can be used for immediate or future implementation.

In the field of education, you will work with varying exceptionalities and diverse individual needs. These needs will include academic, behavioral, and social/emotional skills. Both In the field of education, you will work with varying exceptionalities and diverse individual needs. These needs will include academic, behavioral, and social/emotional skills. Both general and special education educators are expected to address adverse or interfering classroom behaviors, which include implementing effective and evidence-based strategies that promote a high-quality learning environment. This assignment offers an opportunity to analyze a given scenario and research and identify quality evidence-based behavior strategies that strongly align with student needs.

As you navigate this assignment consider:


How characteristics of these behaviors impact student outcomes and educational performance.

The importance and value of selecting effective evidence-based behavioral strategies that align with student needs.

How this assignment will impact your current or future practices working with exceptional learners.





Dave attends class regularly and enjoys math. He likes to solve geometry problems and prefers kinesthetic hands-on learning. Dave struggles attending to task and staying focused in the classroom setting. He has difficulty staying seated for long periods of time and will often get out of his seat and move around the classroom without permission. Dave is often impulsive and will shout out answers without raising his hand, which disrupts instruction and the overall classroom setting. Dave also becomes social at inappropriate times and will excessively talk to his classmates, which adversely impacts the teaching and learning process.


Take Action

Content Instructions:


Use support from your assignment reading, the Instructor Guidance lesson, and the discussions. In your paper,


Provide a hypothesis, which offers a possible function of the observed behaviors.

This includes “why” these behaviors may be occurring:

To gain attention.

To escape or avoid tasks or activities.

To gain access to tangible items or activities.

To gain or avoid self-reinforcing/sensory stimulation.

Research and identify at least three evidence-based behavior strategies that are functionally equivalent and that align with the student’s needs.

Use weekly resources and the What Works Clearinghouse (Links to an external site.) to help identify research-based strategies.

Support your recommendations with scholarly literature.

Explain how each of these strategies will be effective for the identified behaviors in the scenario.

Summarize how the strategies might be used proactively in the future.

Reflect on why you chose these strategies and how they best meet the student’s needs.
