A Proactive and Collaborative Approach to Behavioral Management (K-12)


Based on Dr. Ross Greene’s belief that students will do well if they can, rather than if they want to, Greene argues that behavioral skills need to be taught much like academic skills. His book outlines the steps teachers can take to address challenging behaviors in the classroom.

Greene developed the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach from years of work and research in behavioral management. Unlike punitive measures that often see “repeat” offenders, Greene’s approach seeks out the source of the problem—the only place, he believes, where long-term solutions may be found.

Through his book, Lost at School, Greene empowers teachers with tools explicit guidance and demonstrates building lasting relationships with challenging students.

Educators taking this course will explore how a collaborative and proactive behavioral management system can benefit student learning through reading and research. Educators will also investigate special topics and integrate new knowledge into their teaching environment.
