The Development of a Classroom Management Workshop through an Inservice Training Program.
Keane, Barbara R.
A workshop was developed based on the work of Jacob Kounin, who identified many variables that are representative of teacher style and are strongly correlated with children's behavior in recitation settings. His work reviewed "desist" techniques employed by teachers to stop children's misbehaviors. The first step in developing the workshop consisted of a teacher videotaping a simulated teaching episode in a junior high mathematics class in an effort to demonstrate the concepts outlined by Kounin. Seven vignettes were extracted from the original product and a voice-over was recorded explaining the Kounin terminology, episode by episode. A description is given of the step-by-step development of the workshop format, its presentation to a group of inservice teachers, and an evaluation of the program by participants. Kounin's definition of terms on the dimensions of classroom management are appended, as well as a sample of the evaluation instrument for the inservice program. (JD)
