STARS: Striving Together and Reaching Success; A Behavior Disorders Program Design.
Levin, Valerie E.; Dowda, Martha L.
The manual introduces the framework of STARS (Striving Together and Reaching Success), a program for serving behaviorally disordered students in grades 1-8. The underlying philosophy is to provide a consistently structured instructional program to promote successful reintegration into a less restrictive educational setting. An overview section addresses such issues as eligibility, continuum of services, related services, and job descriptions. Fourteen program components (including classroom management procedures, affective education, assessment, team meetings, and inservice training) are outlined in the second section. The remainder of the manual details, in separate sections, designs for the primary and intermediate level programs (with sample classroom floor plans, schedules, checklists, and procedures for coordinating the management system).
