The second section of the course,Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies suggests how expected behaviors within a classroom should be taught through consistent responses and positive reinforcement. It is full of practical ideas and techniques that will help you as an teacher learn to manage your classroom more effectively.

    I had a question regarding completion of course and the inability to print off the certificate. The tech got back to me within hours, was able to answer my questions, and did a couple beneficial rearranging of courses. As it turned out, I hadn't completed the course so I was able to complete it and go on to the next course. I don't know what I would have done with out PLB. I am thankful!!!

    Overall, this was an informative course with well-documented information on best practices in education. I learned a few new strategies that will be useful in my ELL classes. In addition, it's difficult to find many good quality online courses on ELL instruction and assessment, so this was a helpful option. Thank you!

    So far I am quite pleased and learning from the courses, and appreciate both the ""everything"" package and lifetime access. Good product, I've ended other online classes as either useless or absurdly demanding.
