Sharrock's curator insight, October 9, 2013 9:32 AM

from the article: 

"The Intervention Planner for Behavior is a free application that allows teachers, administrators, and other school personnel to browse a range of strategies to improve student behaviors and to develop customized behavior-management plans for individual students, small groups, or even an entire class. Once you have created a unique behavior plan, you can download the plan in text or PDF format and even email it to others. And if you have a free Intervention Central account, you can also save behavior plans that you create online for later retrieval."
