What We Do
This randomized control trial conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Virginia applied two proven behavior management approaches (PAX Good Behavior Game and My Teaching Partner™) to the training of new teachers in Kindergarten through grade 3. The goal was to help the teachers undertake their work with skills that can enable better classroom management and less intrusion on instructional goals.
