"This easy-to-read, accessible book lays out the critical elements of a complex process in a way that will help classroom teachers establish an effective environment to support all learners. The book will also be useful for veteran school teams who are currently implementing schoolwide PBIS and who are looking for systems and evidence-based practices to extend their supports into classrooms. Among the multitude of books on classroom and behavior management, this one stands out. It should become a required course text."--Tim Lewis, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Missouri

"This book provides a very logical and friendly translation of PBIS principles and maps them onto teachers' daily instructional and classroom management tasks. The inclusion of information on Tier 2 and Tier 3 strategies is unique and sets the book apart. It can be used as a course text, a school-based reference, or a 'how to' for those wishing to infuse positive and proactive strategies across the school and across the curriculum."--Terrance M. Scott, PhD, Professor and Distinguished University Scholar, Department of Special Education, University of Louisville

"Simonsen and Myers have provided an innovative resource for teacher professional development. They demystify the science of behavior with realistic examples (and a bit of humor!) that all educators can relate to and appreciate. The skills-building activities are valuable tools for behavior coaches or consultants working with teachers. This thorough, scientifically sound, practical text is essential reading for educators."--Lucille Eber, EdD, Director, Midwest PBIS Network, Illinois

"Much needed. This is the first book to bridge the gap between schoolwide PBIS and explicit, comprehensive classwide interventions. Written in lay language, it provides a solid foundation in behavioral principles for effective classroom management. This guide will be beneficial for teachers as well as coaches or facilitators of the PBIS process on a campus and/or within a district. Kudos to Simonsen and Myers for delivering a practical, precise book that will help give all students the opportunity to succeed!"--Heather Peshak George, PhD, Department of Child and Family Studies, University of South Florida

"This book provides an excellent, comprehensive orientation to classwide PBIS. It is a 'must read' for anyone with a vested interest in distilling PBIS into each and every classroom. This is a highly valuable resource for preservice and inservice teacher preparation and for supporting implementation of PBIS in schools and classrooms."--Tim Knoster, EdD, College of Education, Bloomsburg University

"An amazing book for new and veteran teachers who want to create a positive, organized classroom environment. In a practical format, the volume includes specific strategies and follow-up activities after each chapter that make it easy to help teachers enhance their effectiveness."--Susan Barrett, MA, Director, PBIS Regional Training and Technical Assistance Center, Sheppard Pratt Health System, Towson, Maryland
