Social behaviors, like academics, require intentional teaching and feedback for students to build fluency and achieve mastery. It is important to have a comprehensive, proactive system to support students’ behavior in the classroom.

Without clear expectations, people feel confused, anxious, or unsure how to proceed, all of which can lead to challenging behaviors. When educators – whether in special education, alternative education, or general education – are clear and consistent with behavioral expectations, it increases the chances that students will meet them.

SESI hosted a webinar on Supporting Classroom Behavior – Part 2 (Application). The second in a three-part series, Part 2 includes information on how you can effectively establish and define behavioral expectations – as well as how districts partner with SESI to create In-District Classrooms with enhanced behavioral support.
