Behaviour Management: A Program for Undergraduate Elementary Student Teachers.
Hett, Geoffrey G.
This report summarizes the outcome of two behavior management programs provided to undergraduate student teachers at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. Eighteen student teachers were taught to use behavior management strategies to improve the attending behavior of elementary school pupils. Each student teacher was randomly assigned to one of two experimental groups. These groups differed in only one respect: classroom coaching and supervision was provided to one group, but not to those in the second group. One disruptive, non-attending pupil was selected from the classrooms to which these student teachers were assigned for their practicum. To measure the success of the student teachers' management program, time samples of attending and non-attending behavior were collected on each of these pupils. Although the pupils taught by both groups of student teachers showed improvement, significant changes in pupil attending occurred with those pupils whose student teachers had received both behavior management training, coaching, and supervision of these skills.
