The field of education is vast and complex with many stakeholders involved, sometimes controversies arise. These controversial issues usually begin with a single or a series of historical events. There also are usually arguments on both sides of the issue, both supporting and opposing. Since these issues may cause strife and division, federal and state policymakers, state and local administration, teachers, students, parents, and community members attempt to offer solutions to these controversial issues.
Relating to these controversial issues are cultural identifiers which can be defined as characteristics or conditions that make each individual unique. Usually, one or more cultural identifiers are at the root of controversial issues. Understanding both the controversial issue and the related cultural identifier can help stakeholders find the best, most equitable, and most ethical solution for everyone involved.

Disruptive behavior and misbehavior can occur in any classroom. If a teacher understands the needs of the student, the effect of the environment on the student, and identifies behavior patterns, it is easier to identify ways to provide support, reinforce positive behaviors, redirect behavior, and prevent a disruptive behavior from occurring in the future. The use of PBIS and other research-based strategies can be used to address and manage behavior and can create a learning environment that is safe and encourages students to engage in meaningful learning and interaction.
Complete the “Classroom Management Matrix.” When conducting research and selecting example behaviors, focus on students in the grade band relevant to your field of study. Include causes and strategies for addressing misbehavior or disruptive behavior in the inclusive classroom. Complete both the chart and the narrative.
Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
