Why Is the Good Behavior Game Used for Bad Behavior? Recommendations for Using It for Promoting Good Behavior

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although the good behavior game (GBG) has a long empirical record for effectively decreasing inappropriate student behavior, there are fewer studies that have targeted improving appropriate behavior. This article describes why and how the GBG can be used by teachers across grade levels and situations to increase student appropriate behavior and benefit teachers.
