Using Tier 2 Small Group Interventions to Reduce Challenging Behaviors in the Elementary Classroom
By Kathleen A. Boothe, Natalie M. Nenovich, and Marla J. Lohmann
This issue of NASET’s Classroom Management series was written by Kathleen A. Boothe, Natalie M. Nenovich, and Marla J. Lohmann. Special Educators are often asked to serve as part of the Response to Intervention (RtI) or MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) Team, which is responsible for designing interventions to address student academic and/or behavioral challenges. Because behavior is a significant concern in today’s classroom, it is imperative that teachers have strategies that can be used in their classrooms when Tier 1 interventions are unsuccessful. This article will discuss several Tier 2 interventions to be used in your classroom, including mentoring, check-in/check-out, and behavior contracts.
