Behavior Boost Resource Guide

The Behavior Boost Resource Guide provides educators with content on evidence-based classroom management practices, collaborative activities to plan for or practice implementing the suggested practices, and goal setting opportunities to prepare and reflect on using the suggested practices within their classrooms. It provides resources, supports, and ongoing guidance for teachers focused on how to integrate Behavior Boost into their daily classroom practices and how to adapt their use of the tool to address students’ unique behavioral needs.

This resource guide is intended to supplement educators' use of the Behavior Boost product. The guide includes reflection questions, opportunities for teachers to share tips and strategies, brief and targeted learning opportunities, and resources related to data-based decision-making. The guide is organized into two parts, with nine sessions total:

  • Part 1 (sessions 1-5) of the guide provides content to support teachers in building a solid foundation for a positive classroom environment. 
  • Part 2 (sessions 6-10) of the guide provides content to help educators make evidence-based practices an embedded part of their practice.  

We recommend grade-level teams engage with this content and related resources on a regular basis (e.g., once a month, every 2-3 weeks) during their grade-level team meetings. Each session within the resource guide should take approximately 20-30 minutes to work through. The resource guide can be worked through collaboratively as a grade-level team with the option of having a behavior-support staff member facilitating the sessions. 

This content will help teachers grow in their understanding of evidence-based positive behavior practices and use that knowledge to drive impact with the Behavior Boost app in their classrooms. In addition to learning content, this guide will include meeting agendas and discussion questions that help school teams guide teachers through cycles of data-based reflection and decision-making using the Behavior Boost app.
