Classroom Practices

Note: Classroom practices are critical to implementation of PBIS, and are integrated into the successful implementation of behavior supports across all three tiers. Tier I Team Training includes the integration of 3 of the key classroom practices and their interconnectedness to school-wide practices. See the Tier 1 Team Training modules for more information.


This Classroom Practice specific 1 day training will provide a more detailed look at all six of the classroom practices. Coaches, administrators, team members, and other classroom practice leaders engage in the professional learning necessary to install and coach the six identified classroom practices/components in a systemic, efficient, and effective way. This will include:

1) providing training to school staff,

2) using the snapshots as self-assessment, peer-assessment, and walk through data to assess implementation of the components, and

3) providing support to staff where data or staff request indicate further need.

Social Emotional Learning: Cultivating Essential Life Skills

Social-Emotional Learning needs to be deliberate and explicit in teaching prosocial behavior, coping strategies, emotional regulation, and problem solving skills. In this episode of PaTTANpod, Kelly Perales shares why this explicit instruction is needed and how we can go about conducting this instruction. PaTTANpod is brought to you by the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network, and is a discussion forum for speaking to national and regional professionals in the field of education.
