Classroom Management: A Guide for the School Consultant.
Tanaka, Jack
Written from a social learning perspective, this book emphasizes the classroom management of problem student behaviors. The text is composed of three major parts. First, "Preparation for Consultation" defines the role of the consultant, outlines the negotiations with teachers and the school principals, and presents behavioral concepts relevant to classroom management. "Problem Solving" then proposes a series of steps to be taken in the school consultation process. Individual chapters in this section cover such topics as specifying and assessing problem student behaviors, behavior measurement, specifying desirable behaviors, identifying positive reinforcers, delineating contingent relationships, and fostering positive interactions. An example of a classroom management program employing a point system is given. Examples of agendas, letters, and forms that may be used during consultation are also included. The third part of the text, "Consultation Experiences," presents special difficulties and emotional issues that are often encountered during actual consultations. The aim of this problem-solving model is to develop the classroom management skills of teachers. To fulfill this aim, the text provides not only the principles of social learning relevant to school consultation but also lucid directions for the consultant to take when assisting school teachers as they correct actual problem student behaviors.
