Defining Behavior (Case Study Unit- The Iris Center)
Before they begin instruction, teachers must define the skills and knowledge that they expect students to learn before. Similarly, teachers must identify the behaviors they expect their students to engage in during instruction. When students do not engage in these expected behaviors, teachers need to create a plan to change students’ behaviors. This Case Study serves as a companion to the Functional Behavioral Assessment: Identifying the Reasons for Problem Behavior and Developing a Behavior Plan (also available on TTAC Online under Behavior).
