Videotape Project in Child Variance. Final Report.
Morse, William C.; Smith, Judith M.
The design, production, dissemination, and evaluation of a series of videotaped training packages designed to enable teachers, parents, and paraprofessionals to interpret child variance in light of personal and alternative perspectives of behavior are discussed. The goal of each package is to highlight unique contributions of different theoretical models in the context of realistic classroom behaviors exhibited by those children whose educational needs and behavioral problems require new interpretations and intervention techniques. Each of the five videotape packages comparing and contrasting two perspectives on child variance contains all the materials necessary to operate a two-hour workshop for inservice and preservice teachers. A behavior segment begins each tape followed by discussion of the behavior exhibited, definition of the problem, interpretation of the etiological aspects, and recommended interventions. Six perspectives or models were examined: biogenic, psychodynamic, behavioral, sociological, ecological, and countertheoretical. (Author/RAO)
