Positive School Learning Climates.
Williams, Vivienne; Krager, Joan M., Ed.
The purpose of this document is to assist the educational community in the development of positive school learning climates through the use of inservice teacher training programs and supportive classroom activities. The five exemplary, short-term seminars designed for school personnel by the Youth Advocacy Loop of the Teacher Corps are described in detail, specifically: (1) the "Administrative University" to help school principals develop individual discipline action plans; (2) the "I-Care" seminar to enhance the counseling skills of teachers; (3) the "Human Interaction Training" program to provide alternatives for dealing with disruptive behavior; (4) the "Alternative Learning Program," an in-school suspension program; and (5) the "Discussion Skills" project to acquaint students with the courtesies required of speakers and listeners. Additionally, an overview of the National Institute of Education's Safe School Study and the report of the California Commission for Reform of Intermediate and Secondary Education and a bibliography on classroom management are provided.
