Management of Disruptive and Off-Task Behaviors: Selected Resources. Bibliographies.
Goss, Sandra Schweighart; Ingersoll, Gary M.
In this collection of annotated references on the subject of classroom management, preference was given to primary research studies or articles about such research, and, with the exception of a few fundamental articles, is limited to studies published in the last decade. Classroom management is defined as the maintenance of on-task behavior or the discouragement of off-task behavior in the normal classroom. A brief presentation is given of commonalities that emerged in reviewing these references. The following generalities about effective classroom management appeared: (1) smooth transitions from one activity to another; (2) establishment of routine daily tasks; (3) adherence to fair and reasonable rules; (4) clearly stated behavioral expectations; (5) effective monitoring of student behavior; (6) timely and appropriate reaction to disruptions; (7) routines, rules, and procedures established in the first weeks of school; and (8) authoritative, firm control paired with warmth and genuine concern for the well-being of the students. This bibliography is divided into sections on Conceptual and Organizational Studies, Research Studies, and Summaries of Research. (JD)
