About BEST in CLASS
BEST in CLASS, developed with funding from the Institute of Education Sciences of the United States Department of Education, is a Tier 2 intervention designed to address the needs of children (PK- 3rd grade) who demonstrate persistent and intensive challenging behaviors in classroom settings, which place them at future risk for developing social-emotional learning difficulties.
The BEST in CLASS intervention is a value-added intervention designed to enhance and support teachers’ use of effective instructional practices that can help prevent children’s challenging behaviors and support learning. Most teachers are already using many of the BEST in CLASS practices in their class; however, when teachers increase and enhance their use of these practices with children who are at risk for social-emotional learning difficulties, these children will learn the social and behavioral skills needed to help them succeed in school.
