This research study addresses how general education teachers can effectively teach students with emotional and behavioral disorders. When teachers use effective instructional practices that promote positive teacher-student interactions and a positive classroom climate, they are minimizing problem behaviors in the classroom (Conroy, 2012). The four research based strategies that this project focuses on are: Positive Praise, self monitoring, token economies, and positive behavioral interventions and supports. Teachers do not feel prepared and are overwhelmed by the number of behavior challenges they are faced with within the general education setting.
