A Resource Guide for Oregon Educators on Developing Student Responsibility: 1989.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Student reponsibility and self-disipline can be facilitated and learned in the school environment, regardless of existing negative influences in a student's life. By focusing on problem prevention and teaching students alternative ways to behave and meet their needs when they do exhibit behavior problems, schools will achieve a high degree of responsible student behavior and dramatically reduce the level of discipline problems in their student boides. A guide is presented that provides a framework to effectively encourage and facilitate responsible student behavior while emphasizing problem prevention and effective teaching. The continuum of services for managing student behavior (interventions) has five steps: (1) classroom adjustments; (2) referral activities with building resources; (3) documented plan with district resources; (4) referral for special education services; and (5) district placement with community resources. The appendixes include four samples of policies and programs. (33 references) (SI)
