When disruptive behavior occurs, your first response can determine how quickly the situation is resolved. Geoff Colovin offers teachers seven key behavioral principles and a range of research-based approaches for immediately defusing disruptive situations, avoiding esacalation, and correcting behaviors.

"Geoff Colvin provides teachers a set of very useful, clear, and sensible tools to manage the behavior of a very important, often-overlooked contributor to their classroom environment: themselves. His strategies are a welcome booster shot for veteran teachers and a great foundation for new teachers just learning the intricacies of balancing instruction and environment in their classrooms. Colvin's research-based ideas are already finding their way into my daily routine." -- Mike McCornack, Technology Coordinator/Choral Director
"The goal of Colvin's work is teacher fluency in their first response to behavior, and I have already witnessed this in action as I observe our early career teachers. It is difficult, if not impossible, to provide quality instruction without effective classroom management. Every early career teacher needs to be well equipped with the concepts Colvin provides in this book." -- Krista D. Parent, Superintendent
"Colvin establishes the importance of empowering teachers with a range of specific, practical, research-based strategies to prevent problem behaviors from occurring and to respond effectively when problems do occur. Each strategy is grounded not only in applied behavior analytic techniques, but also respectful approaches to fostering more positive student-teacher interactions. Each chapter provides step-by-step instruction and clearly articulated illustrations. The strategies increase in intensity to support increasingly challenging behaviors. Colvin does an excellent job of teaching the reader the importance of the first response when undesirable behaviors occur." -- Kathleen Lane, Associate Professor of Special Education
"This is exactly what every teacher needs when dealing with problem behavior! I tried Colvin's strategies in my classroom and they worked! The students who had problems have done a total turnaround with the tactics that Colvin said would work! I was shocked to see how easy they were to use and implement. It has totally changed my classroom!" -- Jennifer Stargel, Fifth-Grade Teacher
