Positive Approaches to Managing Troubled Students: A Mini-Course. Trainer's Manual.
Glass, Raymond M.
The inservice teacher workshop trainer's manual includes an abstract of the minicourse, and lists activities, handouts, and assignments for sessions on improving classroom behavior and self concept. The document is divided into four sections, each focusing on a workshop session. Workshop sessions cover the use of contracts, reward programs, and the systematic use of praise as a behavior change strategy. Among the specific topics addressed are the following: identifying six critical ingredients for changing student behavior, describing and observing problem behavior, preparing behavioral objectives, planning three types of reinforcement programs, filling out performance charts, developing learning contracts, and designing and phasing out a reward program.
