Managing Student Behavior Problems.
Duke, Daniel Linden; Meckel, Adrienne Maravich
Written primarily for teachers and educators, school administrators and personnel, policy makers, and parents, this book discusses the alternative control procedures available to educators faced with student behavior problems and presents one set--those related to problem management--as most effective. The authors' Systematic Management Plan for School Discipline (SMPSD) involves creating awareness that a school is a rule-governed organization, collecting data necessary for understanding and improving discipline, expanding the school's conflict resolution capacity, developing a team approach to discipline (including parents), providing supportive environments for learning, and providing professional development opportunities for faculty and staff. Implementation of SMPSD may require basic changes in school organization and careful preliminary assessment before planning and enacting the program. Appended are a comprehensive list of SMPSD goals and objectives and the Duke Assessment of School Discipline. (Author/WD)
