Behavior Management in Vocational Education Laboratories. Technical Assistance Services: Illinois Special Needs Populations.
Erekson, Thomas L.; Schultz, Robert
This guide is intended to help vocational teachers to manage student behavior, including that of students with handicaps and behavioral problems, in vocational educational laboratories. The guide is organized into three sections. The first section explains the different types of vocational laboratories (active and passive) and what types of behavior problems may be expected in each setting. The main section of the booklet focuses on tools of behavior management, suggesting techniques teachers can use to manage their classes. These techniques include setting rules, discipline, positive reinforcement, contingency contracting, negative reinforcement, modeling, extinction, and punishment. The final, summary section outlines basic principles of human behavior and summarizes tips for working with behavior problems. Appendixes contain a behavioral self evaluation for teachers and steps for implementing a behavioral strategy. (KC)
