The Responsive Classroom approach can be used to implement PBIS

Did you know?

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), also known as PBS or Positive Behavior Support, is used in schools nationwide to create a positive climate for learning. The U.S. Department of Education is currently encouraging school districts to use stimulus funds to implement PBIS.

The Responsive Classroom approach is a research-based approach to teaching that offers elementary schools practical strategies for achieving many of the goals of PBIS. The premise of both PBIS and the Responsive Classroom approach is that continual teaching, modeling, and reinforcing of positive behavior will reduce discipline problems and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety, and learning.

We’ve developed a white paper to explain how Responsive Classroom practices fit within PBIS’s three-tiered framework, and how using the Responsive Classroom approach can help you implement PBIS successfully.
