3 Units
Develops the needed skills to create an educational environment in which students feel safe and secure, while being able to learn. Topics investigated include the continuum of behavior disorders, classroom organizational models, writing behavior support plans to address problem behaviors, laws related to behavior and methods to establish the criteria for the manifestation determination of behavior. Candidates complete 30 hours of field study in a general education classroom. Coupled with the other information learned in class and in collaboration with the general education teacher, students use their field study to identify a student/behavior problem, collect data, write an anecdotal report and develop a behavior support plan to extinguish behavior problems and teach replacement behaviors.
