Supporting and Responding to Behavior: Evidence-Based Classroom Strategies for Teachers (IDEAs that Work, U.S. Department of Education & Center on PBIS)


The purpose of this document is to summarize evidence-based, positive, proactive, and responsive classroom behavior intervention and support strategies for teachers. These strategies should be used classroom-wide, intensified to support small group instruction, or amplified further for individual students. These tools can help teachers capitalize on instructional time and decrease disruptions, which is crucial as schools are held to greater academic and social accountability measures for all students.
