LEAP to Achieve: Learning through Encouragement, Attention, and Praise to Achieve Success

photo The LEAP to Achieve Project trained teachers in effective classroom management practices using the Incredible Years (IY) Teacher Training program. The project aims to determine if classrooms who receive the training have a reduction in aggressive/disruptive and off-task behavior and an increase in academic performance.
