This title offers a toolbox of behavioral techniques for educators and leaders to move their coaching from haphazard to deliberate. Forget the old concept of “behavior consequences” as either good or bad, or that rewards and reinforcement are the same thing. The much bigger picture we’re missing is the science of human behavior, or Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Based in scientific research on learning and performance, it works within any field to accelerate achievement and performance for all outcomes. CEOs of Fortune 500 companies have used it to realize fiscal growth and positive culture change, while school leaders have re-energized failing schools. Describes: how teachers can improve instructional performance; how to encourage children with disabilities to communicate; how to achieve goals in school improvement plans; how to move from reactive to proactive leadership; and how to impact performance of teachers and students by starting small and working smart.
