Educators in the United States have met the challenge of simultaneously teaching large groups of students using a factory analogy, grouping and tracking strategies, applying principles of behavior modification and behavior consultation, and, most recently, data-based problem solving. This chapter describes a data-based problem solving program that forges adaptive classroom communities that promote positive discipline and prevent misbehavior throughout a classroom or school. The strategy targets six characteristics that contribute to students’ success: (1) strong teacher–student relationships; (2) effective peer relationships including friendships between students and their classmates, and conflict management; (3) strong home–school relationships; (4) high levels of academic efficacy; (5) a good sense of self-determination; and (6) behavioral self-control. Data from anonymous student surveys are used to engage teachers and their students in systematic problem solving to strengthen these characteristics of their class. Resources are provided for educators who implement this framework for classroom management.
