EHD 301 - Classroom-based Prevention and Intervention: Supporting Positive Behavior and Academic Achievement

This course examines the application of prevention and intervention theory and practice within classroom settings.  Theoretical perspectives on risk and resilience as they pertain to the development of competent social behaviors, including those found to facilitate social relationships, serve as academic enablers, and promote self-determination will be addressed.  Applied behavioral analysis, social learning theory, and the eco-behavioral framework will serve as the primary intellectual roots for this course.  Particular emphasis will be given to creating a comprehensive classroom plan based on evidence-based practices and implemented within a cohesive system of behavioral and academic support and intervention.  Contextual factors such as home, community, race, culture and SES, within the broader domain of social justice will provide the ecological backdrop of our study.

Prerequisites: Teacher Candidacy status or Child Development and Family Relations (ECE) or acceptance into Education minor.

Course Typically Offered: Fall and Spring
