Abstract: Students with learning and behavioral disorders often lack the requisite academic skills and behavioral self-control to remain engaged during passive seatwork activities. Because independent seatwork composes a large portion of the instructional time in general education classrooms and teachers expect students to demonstrate self-control in these environments, it is important to identify effective procedures to manage student behavior and increase academic involvement during such tasks. The purpose of this article is to present 20 approaches special educators can implement with general educators to do this.
