Primary text or supplement for graduate-level courses or seminars on applied behavior analysis, educational reform, and evidence-based curriculum and instruction. The nineteen chapters in this edited volume were developed from presentations given at The Ohio State University's Third Focus on Behavior Analysis in Education Conference. The contributing authors present literature reviews, conceptual analyses, and data from several original studies; they describe advancements in curricula, classroom and schoolwide interventions, and teacher training programs; and they offer personal perspectives on the current status and future directions of behavior analysis in education. This text is an ideal resource for three groups (1) educators seeking information and resources on measurably effective instructional tools; (2) students of behavior analysis wishing to learn about its applications, accomplishments, and future research needs in education; and (3) anyone-pre-service education major, in-service teacher, school administrator, parent, or consumer-who has heard about the "behavioral approach" and wonders what it is all more
