Managing Challenging Student Behaviors

The videos in this collection originated in courses that are available on PBS TeacherLine, Promoting Positive Behavior in Schools I, II, and III, which showcase positive, systemic programs that help prevent problem behaviors. However, even when schools have implemented positive behavior and intervention systems with fidelity, they won’t be able to prevent all problem behaviors from occurring.

These scenarios, featuring actors in the student roles, illustrate effective strategies to address moderately challenging behavior, such as being off-task or noncompliant, as well as to de-escalate more serious and potentially dangerous behaviors.

The videos were co-produced by KET and the Kentucky Department of Education with support and content provided by the Kentucky Center for Instructional Discipline and University of Louisville College of Education and Human Development.
