Addressing Student Behavior

Why include behavior as an element in an RtI framework? Many students who demonstrate problematic behavior also experience academic challenges. And, students who struggle academically may eventually demonstrate social, emotional, and interpersonal difficulties in efforts to avoid frustrating academic tasks (acting out, school-phobia, truancy, drop-out, bullying, and drug use to name a few). In addition, students whose behavior disrupts a class keep the teacher from teaching and other students from learning, causing a loss instructional time and quality. For those reasons, it is essential that both academic and behavioral systems be addressed in a concerted effort in all three tiers. For students receiving Tier 2 and Tier 3 services, the guidance below is essential. Click on the links.
