Guidelines to Classroom Behavior.
Smith, William I.
Designed for classes of the mentally retarded but applicable to all children, the guidelines to classroom behavior present concepts of discipline and class management including teacher attitudes toward behavior, desired teacher and student relationships, the needs of the student (particularly the need for attention), and the objectives of enhancing student strengths and success areas. Techniques for the teacher are suggested such as increasing student responsibility, flexible scheduling, utilizing parent cooperation, varying the routine with unexpected activities, employing group dynamics and peer expectations, and management of arguments and hostility. The understanding of behaviors and motivations by the teacher is emphasized throughout the text. (RD)
