Behavior Management. A Competency-Based Manual for In-Service Training. In-Service Teacher Training for Mainstreaming Series.
Fagen, Stanley A.; Hill, Jeffery M.
This manual is designed to train teachers to prevent and cope with disruptive student behavior. The focus is on dealing with mainstreamed students with special emotional needs. The manual's six modules can be used by instructors with a general competence in special education. The first module explores behavior values, standards and limits. Module 2 introduces three educational approaches to problem behavior: understanding the organic causes of learning problems, realizing the influences of feeling and attitudes on learning problems, and behavior modification. The third module focuses on specific strategies which may be used to reinforce established behavior standards and limits. Module 4 introduces methods for teaching children how to cope with frustration and conflict. In the fifth module, methods for early intervention in disruptive student behavior are presented. The sixth module offers guidelines for teachers in crisis intervention, focusing on specific incidents as starting points for helping students to see and resolve personal problems. Interviewing and counseling techniques are demonstrated. Each module contains an overview of the module topic; objectives to be mastered; an instructional unit guide to be used by the instructor as a lesson plan; and lists of instructional materials, tasks which must be completed to show mastery of the module objectives, and supplemental readings.
