Classroom Organization and Management Program (COMP). Submission to the Program Effectiveness Panel.
Evertson, Carolyn M.
A description is given of the Classroom Organization and Management Program, designed to help teachers in grades 1-9 and staff developers improve their overall instructional and behavioral management skills through planning, implementing, and maintaining effective classroom practices. It also seeks to improve student task engagement and reduction of inappropriate and disruptive behavior through well-planned and appropriate academic tasks and activities. The program addresses underlying needs of both beginning and experienced teachers for more professional development and inservice training for teachers who wish to improve their management skills and for trainers who wish to provide professional development activities for teachers. The format is a series of 3-day teacher workshops and/or 7-day trainer workshops that focus on: (1) planning and implementing effective strategies for room arrangements; (2) rules and procedures; (3) student accountability; (4) consequences and incentives; (5) behavior management; and (6) conducting class lessons. Participants are taught observation techniques for follow-up and feedback. Appended are some questions on the program posed by the Program Effectiveness Panel. (JD)
