Teachers will sometimes encounter situations in which students become a danger to themselves or others. It is important for teachers to have a plan in place to respond in ways that are ethical, legal, and appropriate for all students involved. Teachers should incorporate behavior management strategies that are proactive in preventing the escalation of these behaviors, as well.
Design a handout (e.g., brochure, flyer) for paraprofessionals and substitute teachers that provides a visual representation of an intervention plan for a classroom. Your handout should include step-by-step procedures for incidents that involve severe/injurious behaviors (e.g., a student lashes out or becomes physical) as well as visual representations.
In addition, rationalize your choices in a 500-750 word summary. Justify the procedures outlined within your handout and discuss how you would communicate this plan with students.
Support your choices with 2-3 scholarly resources.
Attach the Classroom Crisis Prevention and Intervention Plan Handout and rationale as one submission.
