The IRIS Center has produced these two online training modules for teachers. Part 1 is called Understanding the Acting-Out Cycle. It discusses problem behavior in terms of the stages of the acting-out cycle and suggests ways to respond to students in the cycle’s different phases.  Part 2 is called Behavioral Interventions. It describes interventions that can increase initial compliance to teacher requests as well as interventions that can be implemented to decrease disruptive and noncompliant behaviors. Both training modules are available in Spanish, too. Find all at:
