Interventions: Collaborative Planning for Students at Risk. A Resource for Administrators, School Psychologists, School Counselors, Classroom Teachers, Resource Teachers, Behavioral Specialists, Mentor Teachers, and Intervention Teams (SSTs, TATs, etc.) [and] Procedural Manual.
Sprick, Randall; And Others
This set of materials is designed to assist in creating productive, safe, and respectful learning environments for students at risk. The materials are designed around the concepts of treating students with dignity and respect, developing students' skills for success, emphasizing positive interactions, using misbehavior as a teaching opportunity, and staff working together. Through consultation and collaboration, staff members learn to share their expertise in developing practical intervention plans. A procedural manual provides information on how to design and implement high quality intervention plans. It discusses the initial request for assistance, the role of informal collaboration, a step-by-step 25-minute intervention planning process for minor to chronic problems, an in-depth intervention process for chronic to severe problems, skills needed by the interventionist, and creating a climate for collaboration. Sixteen booklets then describe how to set up, and implement major interventions; managing physically dangerous behavior, managing severely disruptive behavior, planned discussions to assist students with behavior problems, academic assistance, restructuring self-talk, signal interference cuing, mentoring, self-control training, goal setting and contracting, teaching desired behaviors, self-monitoring, structured reinforcement systems, managing stress, classroom management strategies, increasing positive interactions, and borderlines and consequences. The manual and each pamphlet contain references. (JDD)
