A Mini-Instructional System for Increasing Teacher Classroom Management Competence.
Weber, Wilford A.; And Others
The findings from two studies (Pre-Post and Matched-Pairs) suggest that the mini-instructional system that was designed to provide teachers with training in the analytic-pluralistic approach to classroom management did have a very positive impact on those teachers who received this training. The mini-instructional system is one in which classroom management is viewed as a four-stage process in which the teacher: (1) specifies the desirable classroom conditions; (2) identifies discrepancies between the existing behaviors and those deemed desirable; (3) utilizes those specific managerial behaviors that will most effectively narrow the gap; and (4) evaluates his or her managerial effectiveness. Specifically, findings suggest that the training is effective in fostering those teacher attitudes and teacher managerial behaviors thought to be related to desirable student outcomes. (DS)
