Activity #3: On the Activity #3 Email your instructor a response to the following questions.

Using the summary information from the FACTS document you completed in Part 2, choose an intervention described in the Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management and describe how the intervention is designed to fit the information you gathered from the FACTS.

This activity has two requirements:
1. Discuss an intervention, as described above, and

2. Respond in a helpful way to other participants’ comments about interventions. (suggest an idea or resource, expand upon their posting, describe how you have resolved problems with a similar student, etc.).

Classroom Discussion:
Participants should read the assigned readings and be prepared to discuss the following questions on the discussion board:

1.What is a behavior intervention plan (i.e., behavior support plan) and how do you use an FBA in developing this plan?

2.What supports in your school are currently available for students in need of tertiary behavior intervention supports?

3.What data is available in your school to help you determine whether the tertiary intervention plans developed are effective?

4.Describe at least one typical question or concern you expect to hear from your colleagues about the tertiary intervention plans, and briefly describe how you plan to respond.
