Student will experience frustration, confusion and perhaps failure if they do not have clearly articulated routines, structures and expectations for their learning environment. This book asks educators to commit to proactively serving all students and anticipating their needs.

The authors transform the research on student behaviour, response to intervention and professional learning communities into practical strategies educators can use to create superior school and classroom climates and cultures in which learning is primed to occur. A three-tiered pyramid of behaviour model provides a continuum of effective schoolwide behaviour support with seven keys to a positive learning environment:

  • Common expectations

  • Targetted instruction

  • Positive reinforcement

  • Support strategies and interventions

  • Collaborative teams

  • Data-driven dialogue

  • School-wide systems approach

Pyramid of Behaviour Interventions includes many examples of real schools making a difference with real kids. The authors provide tools for school wide positive discipline, information for teams to create and maintain core vision and values, methods to help develop data-driven dialogue with a focus on results, and systems for providing pyramids of intervention to support behaviour, including instructions for developing:

  • Structures for consistent responses, interventions and consequences

  • A behaviour matrix

  • Behaviour analysis flowcharts

  • Behaviour contracts

  • Specific strategies for positive reinforcement
