Reinforcing Productive Classroom Behavior: A Teacher's Guide to Behavior Modification. Final Report.
Glaser, Edward M.; Sarason, Irwin G.
Designed to be of help to classroom teachers who may not be trained in the application of operant conditioning methods to classroom behavior, this guide to behavior modification attempts to provide practical suggestions which have been validated in research studies. Contained in the guide are descriptions of some common elementary classroom problems, the principles and ethical considerations in the use of behavior modification, suggestions for creating a better learning climate in the classroom, examples of practical applications of behavior principles, and several illustrative case studies based upon research investigations. Appended is a glossary of behavioral terms and an annotated bibliography. While the examples for the guide are drawn from the elementary level, teachers working with older children may find helpful suggestions applicable to their own classrooms. (Author/CJ)
