Teacher's Intervention Choices for Children Exhibiting Different Behaviors in School.
Algozzine, Bob; And Others
One hundred and seventy-four elementary classroom teachers reviewed a case study on a third-grade male student exhibiting either unmanageable behavior, socially immature behavior, or perceptual difficulties within the classroom, and then indicated their agreement with 40 statements of possible interventions for the student. A factor analysis indicated that teachers preferred interventions in which they would be involved. Different interventions were recommended for students exhibiting different behaviors approximately one-half the time. More severe interventions (e.g., drug therapy) were favored more often for an unmanageable student, and less severe ones (e.g., peer tutoring) for a student with perceptual difficulties. The results are discussed with regard to implications for serving students exhibiting different behaviors in school. (Author)
