Classroom Management for Gifted and Twice-Exceptional Students Using Functional Behavior Assessment Resources

Yara N. Farah, Ph.D., and Susan K. Johnsen, Ph.D., Authors

Classroom Management for Gifted and Twice-Exceptional Students Using Functional Behavior Assessment assists educators in understanding how to identify and target behaviors that influence the success of students and daily classroom instruction. Each module includes case studies that provide examples of the concepts being taught and supplementary materials, such as presentations, interactive graphic organizers, small-group problem-solving activities, self-assessments, and resources for developing interventions. The modules may be used within a university course, a series of workshops, or professional teacher learning communities. Using Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), a successful research-based approach to behavioral interventions, teachers can learn to manage student behavior and implement differentiation in the classroom.

PowerPoint Presentations

Formative Assessments

These formative assessments may be used to adapt the set of modules to participants’ knowledge and skills. These assessments might be used as an advanced organizer and assist in revising presentation slides, selecting professional learning activities, and even eliminating some of the modules if the content has already been acquired by the participants.

Direct and Indirect Assessment Forms

These direct and indirect assessment forms may be used to monitor and record student behavior. Editable versions of the forms are also available for educators to modify as needed.

Additional Resources

These additional resources provide information for professionals in examining schoolwide behavior management systems and in addressing students with more severe behavior disorders.
