Classroom Behavior Management for Diverse and Inclusive Schools utilizes a three-stage approach to classroom behavior management to assist teachers in avoiding behavior problems, managing those that cannot be avoided, and resolving those that cannot be managed. It enables teachers to accommodate their management techniques to students' diverse developmental, gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic class characteristics in today's inclusive schools.
