  • Session 2: Promoting Social and Emotional Development

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the evidence-based components of a classroom behavior management intervention, the CW-FIT.
  2. consult with school-based professionals who can implement the CW-FIT in their classrooms.
  3. apply research findings from the classroom behavior management literature to their practice.


Classroom behavior management interventions are designed to reduce the disruptive behaviors of students and provide teachers with more time to focus on instruction. The Class-Wide Function-Related Intervention Teams (CW-FIT) is a multicomponent behavior management intervention program developed to improve the classroom behaviors of students. This presentation will share results from a systematic review that evaluated the quality of studies examining the effectiveness of implementing Tier 1 components of the CW-FIT to improve class-wide student behavior.
