Behavioral Strategies That YOU Can Implement in 2022

In our frequent conversations with teachers and educational leaders from across the country, nearly all of them site student behavior issues as one of the biggest obstacles to doing their job effectively.

Behavior issues of a few students doesn’t just affect those students individually, either. Obviously, if teachers spend more time correcting behavior issues than covering their curriculum, it becomes almost impossible to reach not only the disruptive students, but the other students in the classroom as well. 

Students don’t just learn and absorb information differently; they respond to behavior interventions differently too. That’s why it is so important to have a diverse ‘tool box’ of behavior intervention strategies, that can help teachers address behavior issues in ways that will have the best chance of success with a wide range of students. 

This is not just for teachers that are new to the industry either. Teachers that have employed strategies that have been effective for years still need to be prepared to try new and different strategies, so they are equipped to deal with all of their students. 

Our colleague, Jon Konen has written an excellent article that will help teachers and educational leaders expand their tool boxes with 5 Behavioral Strategies That You Can Try Out in 2022 and beyond.

In his article, Jon will cover the 85-10-5 triangle, that outlines which students will fall under Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Behavior Intervention Strategies, and the 5 methods that can be used to deal with all students, but most importantly those students who require Tier 2 and Tier 3 Behavior Interventions. These include:

  1. Brain Fuzz – Changing a student’s thought process
  2. Check-In and Check-Out – Asking students to check in and out at the beginning and end of each lesson to manage teacher expectations
  3. High-Trust Language Techniques – A powerful philosophy that can build a foundation for strong relationships
  4. Love and Logic SEL Banking Account – A philosophy built around research-drive practices
  5. Restorative Practices – Making sure relationships are sustained, fixed, and in-tact.


At the Source, we believe that creating and maintain an effective behavior intervention strategy in schools is essential to creating a positive learning environment. If you’re interested in improving your school’s strategies, have a look at the Behavior Intervention Programs that we offer here on our site.

3. Classroom Management is a Timeless Foundation of Sound Instructional Practice This has not changed since the days of the one room schoolhouse on the prairie. We all know this to be true. It was the case yesterday, it is the case today, and it will be the case tomorrow. The techniques and practices vary and improve – but if your classrooms are not well managed – they are not good places for students to learn or feel cared for. 4. Teacher (and Principal) Wellness depends upon it. Recent studies show that one of the major sources of stress and burn out for teachers is the challenges they face with student behavior issues. This has become even more challenging during the COVID-19 Pandemic. A Classroom Management program provides a low maintenance – high impact way of providing teachers a lifeline – practical strategies they can use to reduce stress and enjoy their profession. 5. Enhances relationships with Families and the Community In schools with well managed classrooms the pervasive “read” of families and communities is that the school is well run. Sound classroom management practices throughout the school empower principals to establish sound relationships which we know is critical for building highly effective schools. 6. Supervision and Personnel Issues The most frequent issue behind personnel issues with teachers is their capacity to build effective relationships with students and families. Classroom Management cannot “fix” every problem, but it CAN influence many and turn problem situations into positive situations. It supports principals with helping and supporting teachers grow and continue in their profession. These reasons are not the only ones that make an effective Classroom Management strategy so important, but they do provide an outline for why an effective program is essential to creating positive teaching and learning environments for students and teachers. We’ve put together a Classroom Management – Cohevise Classroom here at the source that is one of the most cost-effective an efficient programs you’ll find anywhere.
