New What Works Clearinghouse Practice Guide

February 20, 2009

Reducing Behavior Problems in the Elementary School Classroom: Designed for elementary school educators and school- and district-level administrators, this guide offers prevention, implementation, and school-wide strategies that can be used to reduce problematic behavior that interferes with the ability of students to attend to and engage fully in instructional activities.

The What Works Clearinghouse practice guides provide practical recommendations for educators to help them address the everyday challenges they face in their classrooms and schools. Developed by a panel of nationally recognized experts, practice guides consist of actionable recommendations, strategies for overcoming potential roadblocks, and an indication of the strength of evidence supporting each recommendation. The practice guides are subjected to rigorous external peer review by the U.S. Department of Education  Institute of Education Sciences.
