The Emotionally Disturbed Child in the Classroom; A Developmental Strategy for Educating Children with Maladaptive Behavior.
Hewett, Frank M.
The emotionally disturbed child is presented as a learning problem whose difficulties can be helped by the teacher and school. The description of educational goals, methodology, and assessment includes the psychodynamic-interpersonal, sensory-neurological, and behavior modification strategies; a developmental sequence of educational goals; methodology of the learning triangle of task, reward, and structure; and educational assessment of emotionally disturbed children. Specific classroom practices detailed concern attention level, response level, order level, exploratory and social levels, and mastery and achievement levels. Total classroom design for emotionally disturbed children is explained, and the curriculum of the Santa Monica Project which developed and evaluated engineered classroom design is reviewed. Appendixes provide a student assessment inventory, parent and teacher rating scales, task attention criteria, and a bibliography of 208 items. (JD)
