Pilot Strategies To Improve the Behavior of Students Who Were Placed in In-School Suspension Nine Days or More and Suspended Home during the Previous School Year.
A project designed to improve the behaviors of high school students with chronic disciplinary problems is described in this practicum report. The target group consisted of 10 students in grades 10 through 12 (7 boys, 3 girls; 3 whites, 7 blacks) with high truancy and inschool suspension rates, low self-esteem, failing grades, and negative attitudes toward school. Methodology involved weekly student/project administrator meetings and weekly performance reports by teachers. Findings indicate that the attention given the students helped to improve their attitudes, attendance, grades, behaviors, and self-esteem. Appendices include student behavior response forms, pre- and post-student behavior ratings, pre- and post-teacher observation reports, and student contracts. (16 references) (LMI)
