Classroom management can be a challenging aspect of teaching. As teaching becomes more stressful with increased accountability standards and high-stakes testing, a well-managed classroom is key to maximizing student learning opportunities. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) emphasizes the use of proactive strategies that define, teach, and reinforce appropriate behaviors. Attendees will learn how to develop expectations that can be used in classroom, related service and other school settings, and how to teach and reinforce those expectations. The CHAMPs system of setting expectations for each specific activity is one of the strategies that will be discussed. The acronym refers to identifying the expectations for Conversation, Help, Activity, Movement and Participation.
