Behavior Management in Physical Education: A Handbook for Teachers.
Ackerman, Jeanne; Dummer, Gail
The booklet is intended to help physical educators deal with behavior problems in students. A preventive approach is advocated which involves defining expectations of acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Examples are given of ways to reinforce desirable behaviors and prevent behavior violations through such actions as structuring the physical environment, modeling, and enforcing consequences. Among strategies suggested for undesirable behavior are planned ignoring, nonverbal signals, proximity control, use of humor to reduce tension, removal of distractors, and restructuring of the classroom program.
