School Coping Style Analysis in the Elementary School. Georgia Comprehensive Guidance Series.
Moore, Earl J.
This workshop manual is one of four volumes in a staff development series designed for use with the Georgia comprehensive guidance and counseling units. The manual presents three separate models of students' school coping styles to aid classroom teachers' understanding of student behavior. Part 1 summarizes four basic models of student coping, i.e., power-dominance, acceptance-anxious, undisciplined-impulsive, and rigid-inhibited; a fifth style, creative-responsive is also presented as an ideal for comparison. The format of presentation for each mode consists of a listing of behavior characteristics of each style for identification purposes (in reproducible workshop handouts), a summary of each style, and suggested treatment techniques. Part 2, designed for use by school counselors as well as teachers, discusses Adlerian concepts and learning style in relation to children's school behavior. Part 3, for teachers and learning specialists, describes the relationship of hemispheric functioning to school learning and behavior. A Hemisphericity Observation Guide is included which delineates right- and left-minded characteristics, along with a checklist of special behaviors to be observed in identifying each mode, e.g., time and space orientation, and expression and behavior styles.
