This casebook provides a comprehensive, problem-based approach to studying the rules of evidence. Organized around the federal rules, this casebook provides coverage of every single rule; yet, through careful case choice and editing, Professor Nicolas has produced a book that can easily be taught from cover-to-cover in as few as three semester hours. Key features of the casebook include approximately 115 in-depth problems that are designed to teach all the nuances of the rules, as well as coverage of selected state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules designed to facilitate class discussion about the policies underlying the rules of evidence. In addition, the casebook contains an enriched section on scientific evidence, in-depth coverage of the rules to electronic evidence, and a chapter on appellate review of evidentiary rulings. The revised third edition of the casebook builds on the strengths of previous editions while at the same time updating it to reflect recent developments. The text has been revised to reflect the language of the Restyled Federal Rules of Evidence as well as all substantive amendments through December 2013. The revised third edition contains edited versions of the Supreme Court¿s most recent Confrontation Clause decisions, including Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts, Michigan v. Bryant, Bullcoming v. New Mexico, and Williams v. Illinois. The revised third edition also includes recent decisions applying the rules of evidence to electronic evidence, including cases involving information found on social networking websites. In addition, it contains expanded coverage of state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules. Finally, in an effort to keep the book manageable in length, Professor Nicolas has--as a general rule--tried to remove a page of material for every new page added. An annual supplement is produced each year that includes the latest developments in evidence law so as to keep the textbook up-to-date between editions. A separate statutory supplement includes the federal rules of evidence and selected legislative history.

This book is based on the idea that a behavior management plan can be as effective in preventing problematic classroom behavior as it is in managing it and utilizes an evidence-based approach to solving problems. It offers easy-to-implement, research-based plans for addressing problematic classroom behavior in two key areas: on-task time/assignment completion and disruption/rule violation. The author introduces a dozen behavior management plans in non-technical language. This eliminates the need for extensive training in behavior therapy or learning theory. FEATURES: An introductory chapter addressing “evidence-based” practice in education–Explaining the scientific nature of the book's plans and introducing the rationale behind the use of such practice. A chapter on the “beeper” system for enhancing student engagement. Introduces a recently developed device, the “MotivAider”–explains how it works, when it is best used, and what can be expected when it is used. A common format in each plan chapter (Chapters 2 -12)–Description, terms, apparatus, baseline measurement, procedures, “how it works,” additional considerations, hypothetical cases, “what if,” and forms. Facilitates comparison among plans–helps future teachers develop their intuitive sense for what works with which learners, and why. Discussion of a “dual plan” strategy for addressing disruptive behavior–Teaming a plan for stopping the disruptive behavior with one for encouraging desired behavior. Illustrates the advantage in tackling certain problem behaviors “on two fronts”–offers specific plans that work concurrently to change “bad” behavior into “good” behavior. A wide range of plans–For individual students, small groups, and entire classrooms. Expands the repertoire of both beginning and veteran teachers–provides a full complement of strategies to fit a wide range of situations and behaviors. Perforated pages--Enables teachers to tear out specific plans for implementation.
