Behavior Challenges: A Shared Approach.
Dick, David; And Others
This guide is designed to assist educators in meeting behavior challenges by focusing on four key areas that impact significantly on behavior in schools: (1) communication: the process of making one's feelings and opinions known to others and discovering the feelings and opinions of others; (2) expectations: the academic, behavioral, attitudinal, and emotional performance anticipated to be exhibited by individuals; (3) issues: exhibited attitudes or behaviors that are symptoms of more deeply-rooted problems; and (4) values: qualities that have worth, usefulness, importance, and desirability. Each individual section of the document is devoted to one of these groups: teachers; administrators; parents; and students. Each section includes an introduction, communication skills checklist, expectations checklist, issues checklist, values checklist, and strategies, approaches, and activities designed to assist teachers in dealing with different kinds of behavior problems. The last section of the manual gives guidance to school personnel regarding assistance for severely behavior-disordered students. It includes the kind of information the school should make available to agencies; how to access specialized services; the type of assistance to look for from outside agencies; and the role of the parent(s) in an out-of-system referral.
