Supplemental Group Management Techniques.
A thorough and integrated approach to classroom management can enable teachers to prevent most discipline problems and handle those that do occur. Some students, however, may have intensive personal or behavior problems requiring individualized treatment in addition to group management techniques. Many teachers may also want to pursue student socialization goals that go beyond the establishment of an effective learning environment. This chapter of "Helping Teachers Manage Classrooms" discusses methods that can be used to supplement a basic classroom management program. These methods include techniques for improving interpersonal relationships and group dynamics; applications of behavior modification theory, involving use of reinforcement techniques; and provision of individual counseling or therapy. The chapter also discusses the application of such techniques at different educational levels, from kindergarten through secondary school. Sources for thorough descriptions of the techniques by their originators are provided along with brief discussions of their central features. (Author/PGD)
