This publication presents a system of proactive classroom management for use in elementary school, grades K-6. Characteristics of the proactive concept are described as: (1) planning for prevention rather than reaction to behavior problems; (2) considering the classroom as a total process of facilitating achievement as well as appropriate behavior; (3) dealing with the entire class rather than with individual student behavior; and (4) defining behavior management as an entire system utilizing the principles of behavior theory rather than isolated techniques. An overview is provided of behavioral principles that will give teachers a broad-based understanding of why children behave and misbehave. A classroom management system is presented based on behavioral principles. The book is organized into eight chapters: (1) The Behavior Management Hierarchy; (2) Classroom Environment; (3) Scheduling; (4) Affecting Antecedents: Rules and Routines; (5) Reinforcement Strategies; (6) Parental Involvement; (7) Using Consequences To Affect Behaviors; and (8) Concluding Remarks, consisting of a checklist to help in assessing the classroom and for troubleshooting behavior problems.

The purpose of this study was to find the best classroom management strategies to use when teaching in an elementary school setting. I wanted to conduct the best possible management tools for a variety of age groups as well as meet educational standards. Through my research I found different approaches in different grade levels is an important factor in reading students academic needs. Using different data collection tools: Active observing, teacher survey, specialist survey, semantic differential questionnaire, a goal checklist, email interview, student portfolios, student journaling and student self-assessment I was able to gather evidence of best practices. when it comes to classroom management. Student journaling and student self-assessments were the two areas of management that I found most effective. Using these two forms of data really helped me get a better hold on how I can reach students needs and wants in the classroom. When students took a hold of their own learning good behavior increased. An appendix presents: Data Matrix and Student Interest Survey results.
