Self-monitoring is a self-management strategy that involves teaching students how to monitor, observe, record, and change their own behavior (Vanderbilt, 2005). Self-monitoring is a feasible and potentially effective practice to support the academic and behavioral performance of students with varied needs (Carr & Punzo, 1993; Mooney, Ryan, Uhing, Reid, & Epstein, 2005). Self-monitoring interventions can be structured and implemented in a variety of ways, and, when implemented correctly, require minimal classroom resources (e.g., teacher time; Lane, Menzies, Bruhn, & Crnobori, in press; Menzies, Lane, & Lee, 2009). Topics will include an overview of self-monitoring strategies, supporting research for its use, the efficacy of self-monitoring with different populations, and examples across various grade levels and settings. We will also include a detailed explanation of how to implement self- monitoring in your classroom by introducing a research-based approach to conducting self-monitoring interventions to address academic and behavioral issues with individual students (Menzies, Lane, & Lee, 2009; Vanderbilt, 2005). *Please bring a school-site team or one other member of your faculty.
