The Good Behavior Game: Success in the Classroom and Beyond
The AIR Approach
Providing Support So Students Receive the Maximum Benefit of the Good Behavior Game
The Good Behavior Game is a simple method of managing classroom behavior that has dramatic long-term impact when implemented well. But without the right level of support, the results can be hit or miss.
The American Institutes for Research provides a comprehensive approach to training, on-site coaching, and program oversight to realize positive results from the Good Behavior Game. Our approach draws from our nationally known expertise in:
- Human and social development
- Organizational effectiveness
- Workforce development
We work with district and school staff to build a team to effectively implement the Good Behavior Game. Our staff identify and clearly articulate each role—for the principal, district and school administration, teachers, and support staff—so the Game is fully supported and its components are incorporated into the school and district culture and climate.
We provide onsite coaching so staff receive consistent training. Our coaches listen to staff needs and adjust the training to address specific issues. Our model allows for the training to expand as needed to scale up the program across classrooms and schools within a district.
At AIR, we understand what it takes to effectively incorporate strategies for lasting positive change. We know how adults learn, so our training and oversight are effective. As a result, the Game is administered consistently, with fidelity to the research-proven model, so children and teachers can experience its known positive effects.
