Helping students learn to manage their behaviors and to resolve conflict constructively can be challenging. These directions for setting clear and measurable behavior goals and three ready-to-use tools can help. The Behavior Progress Monitoring Form enables teachers to collect detailed data consistently with little attention diverted from instruction, and the Behavior Progress Reflection Form is a self-evaluation tool for encouraging the development of behavioral awareness and compensatory skills. Students learning how to control their reactions and interactions with others are bound to experience conflict. “Making the Best of a Difficult Situation” is a student-driven three-step process for examining conflicts, identifying needs and feelings, and planning carefully what to do next. Writing clear behavior goals, tracking carefully student progress toward these goals, and supporting students through inevitable conflicts are central to the success of data-driven interventions.
