Development and Implementation of an Inservice to Increase Student Teachers' Understanding and Management of the Out-of-Control Child in the Elementary Classroom.
The practicum addressed the problem of student teachers' inadequacy in managing out-of-control children in the elementary classroom. The objectives were to conduct: (1) an in-service program on six factors that contribute to out-of-control behavior; and (2) an in-service program on the techniques for managing the out-of-control child. Techniques included family intervention conferences, three-party confrontation, resolution contracting, physical reconstruction of the learning environment, hassle logs, tonal taping, and audio assessment. Objectives were met. A total of 97 percent of the student teachers were able to state the factors contributing to out-of-control behavior with 95 percent accuracy. A total of 94 percent of the student teachers were able to state and apply at least five techniques to manage out-of-control children with 95 percent accuracy. A questionnaire that was used as an evaluative tool is appended. A bibliography provides 22 references. (Author/GLR)
