Positive Behaviour Management. A Manual for Teachers.
Cheesman, Peter L.; Watts, Phil E.
This book was written with the aim of helping teachers deal with those behavior problems which are commonly encountered in the classroom and around the school. Part 1 discusses the background to behavior problems, psychological approaches to problem behavior, and factors affecting behavior. The assessment of behavior problems is the topic of Part 2. Suggestions are made on describing behavior, observing and measuring behavior, and choosing ways to modify behavior. In part 3, intervention strategies are described. The final part considers practical ways in which positive behavior management may be put into effect. A step-by-step guide is provided in the form of an assessment chart or intervention chart to enable a teacher to design a behavior management program. Each chapter contains all the practical information necessary for the completion of a cell in either the assessment chart or the intervention chart. The appropriate chart is given at the beginning of each chapter and the cell with which it is concerned is indicated. (JD)
