I'm All Right, Teach! You're Screwed Up: Counseling Kids to Change Inappropriate Teacher Behavior.
Oehmen, Steve; James, Richard
This paper describes a group counseling program designed to teach secondary students identified with behavior and academic problems to become proactive in the classroom through the use of behavioral techniques. A session-by-session examination of the 10-session program is provided and interventions used by students in the classroom to gain a target teacher's respect are discussed. Although it is suggested that the program be modified to fit different settings, several elements that are essential regardless of setting are enumerated and explained, including enthusiasm, positivism, feedback and clarification, and integrity. Examples of program effectiveness and changes in teacher attitudes and behaviors toward the students involved in the program are given. A 9-week follow-up is mentioned which again indicates the success of the program. (NRB)
