A Proactive and Collaborative Approach to Behavioral Management
(K12) Based on Dr. Ross Greene’s belief that students will do well if they can, rather than if they want to, Greene argues that much like academic skills, behavioral skills need to be taught. His book, Lost at School, outlines the steps teachers can take to address challenging behaviors in the classroom. He developed the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach from his years of work and research in behavioral management. Unlike punitive measures that often see “repeat” offenders, Greene’s approach seeks out the source of the problem—the only place, he believes, where long-term solutions can be found.
Through his book, Greene empowers teachers with tools, explicit guidance, and demonstrates how to build lasting relationships with challenging students.
Educators taking this course, through reading and research, will explore how a collaborative and proactive behavioral management system can benefit student learning. Educators will also investigate special topics and integrate new learning into their teaching environment.
