Strategies To Reduce Student Misbehavior.
Moles, Oliver C., Ed.
Originally presented at a 1986 conference on student discipline strategies, this collection of papers represents highlights of the conference proceedings. Each paper has since been revised and updated. An introduction by Oliver C. Moles discusses the nature, extent, and academic effects of student misbehavior. In "Classroom Management Techniques," Walter Doyle argues that order is not so much determined by the teacher's reactions to misbehavior as it is conditioned by the way teachers organize the system of classroom activities and academic work. In "School Organization, Leadership, and Student Behavior," Daniel L. Duke presents a model of how key organizational elements of schools and school leadership may affect student conduct. The paper "Courts and School Discipline Policies," by Henry S. Lufler, Jr., examines the link between court decisions and changes in school discipline practices and suggests ways that current research findings can be used to enhance the legal education of school personnel. In "Developing Effective Organizations to Reduce School Disorder," Denise C. Gottfredson discusses attempts to reduce disruptive behavior by changing school practices in ways guided by research. In the final paper, "School and Classroom Discipline Programs: How Well Do They Work?," Edmund T. Emmer and Amy Aussiker examine research on four widely used discipline programs--Assertive Discipline, Teacher Effectiveness Training, Reality Therapy, and Adlerian-based approaches. An appendix contains an annotated list of federally supported research reports on school crime and student misbehavior for the period 1977-88. (MLF)
