Ryan, Thomas P.
This document presents narrative descriptions of 14 selected programs for reducing truant and disruptive behavior in schools, as selected by a group of Virginia educators in a project sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education. Among the tools utilized in these programs are behavior modification using tokens, in-school tutoring, in-school suspension, team teaching, adult advisers from the community, basic skills development, cross age tutoring, student involvement in classroom management, the school-within-a-school concept, group counseling, mini-courses, and adventure education. Specialized processes for improving student-teacher relationships, such as Teacher Effectiveness Training and Schools Without Failure, are also described. Methods used in the dissemination of this information are discussed in the first volume of the report. (Author/PGD)
