Problem Solving Behavior of Teenagers: An Indicator for Classroom Management.
Behrle, Frederick J.
Youth were found to be responsive to a survey when asked for solutions to provocatively disruptive situations. The general purpose of this study was to determine whether these expressed solutions have some useful application to the problems of disruption. Description was measured through a situational survey and a self-description form filled out by the student along with a teacher rating of the student's behavior. The situational survey consisted of seven specific situations which were provocatively disruptive in nature, followed by a general question about annoying situations. The solutions to the survey were rated according to clinically oriented criteria of disruption. The results were generally minimal as far as any consistent or outstanding patterns of disruption. Signs of disruption in various solutions were not evident in the teacher's or student's self-index of disruption. It was concluded that the survey was valuable as a probe, leading to pertinent questions. (Author/BW)
