Reinforcing Productive Classroom Behavior. A Teacher's Guide to Behavior Modification.
Sarason, Irwin G.; And Others
This guide to behavior modification provides teachers and others who work with children with some practical suggestions to reinforce productive classroom behavior. A description of common elementary classroom problems, the principles and ethical considerations in the use of behavior modification, suggestions for establishing a classroom climate that leads to increased learning, examples of practical applications of behavioral principles, and illustrative case studies based on research investigation are included. Parents and teachers, guided by behavior modification principles have acquired skills validated in research studies, including pinpointing behaviors that require modification and applying techniques to bring these modifications about. As a result, many behaviors that otherwise might have been viewed as evidence of emotional instability or pathology have instead come to be viewed as modifiable behaviors. A glossary and a 16-item annotated bibliography are included. (Author/MJM)
