Positive Behavior Support at the Secondary "Targeted Group" Level
Yellow Zone Strategies



October 2014 | 208 pages | Corwin

Seal the gaps in student learning with targeted intervention

Research on positive behavior support has focused largely on tier one, school-wide disciplinary policies, and tier three interventions tailored to highly problematic students. This leaves a gap in the middle. “Yellow zone”, or tier two, interventions are an extremely effective way to address many challenging behavior and disciplinary issues in small group settings.  

Positive Behavior Support at the Secondary “Targeted Group” Level shows teachers how to identify the students who can benefit from tier two interventions and demonstrates how to create an implementation plan that delivers results. Focusing on proactive strategies rather than reactive solutions, Riffel and Mitchiner’s research-based techniques include: 

  • General strategies that can be applied at the individual student level, such as self-management, proximity control, and the Premack principle and peer mentoring 
  • Comprehensive action plans that anticipate the full range of disruptions that may occur
  • A  useful behavior rating sheet proven effective in improving student behavior
  • “Funk Sway” For The Classroom: Using Feng Shui principles to create a classroom environment that enhances productivity, learning, and creativity

Apply the techniques in this book to reduce challenging behavior, improve school climate, and improve outcomes for ALL students.
