This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3,9
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 2: Promoting Social and Emotional Development

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn about the relationship between teacher-reported student misbehavior and teacher use of reactive and proactive practices.
  2. understand how to support teacher classroom management practices by understanding the impact of student misbehavior.
  3. learn about teacher and classroom characteristics that may impact classroom management practices.


The use of proactive evidence-based practices to address student misbehavior is an integral component of classroom management. Yet, what happens when teachers are faced with varying levels of misbehavior? This session will present the relationship between teacher-reported student misbehaver and their use of both reactive and proactive practices. Practitioners will learn about classroom characteristics (e.g., percentage of students in special education) and teacher characteristics to aid in the discussion and support of classroom management practices.
