Teaching Students with Behavioral Disorders: Basic Questions and Answers. Working with Behavioral Disorders: CEC Mini-Library.
Lewis, Timothy J.; And Others
This booklet reviews the literature while addressing over 100 questions that classroom teachers commonly ask concerning teaching students with behavioral disorders. Questions are grouped into three major categories. The first section, on effective assessment and evaluation practices, examines assessment for classification, diagnostic, and instructional purposes. The second section, on developing curriculum and instruction, focuses on designing intervention strategies to change academic and social behaviors, with emphasis on strategies to increase positive behaviors as opposed to stressing the reduction of negative behaviors. The third section, on collaboration, looks at issues surrounding the development of positive partnerships between teachers and other teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, community agencies, and parents. Each section lists suggested readings. (DB)
