Behavior Analysis in Education. Focus on Measurably Superior Instruction.
Gardner, Ralph, III, Ed.; And Others
This book was written to disseminate measurably superior instructional strategies to those interested in advancing sound, field-tested educational practices. Part 1 contains chapters that give two views of the future of behavior analysis in education, while part 2 focuses on promoting applied behavior analysis. Part 3 addresses issues in early childhood education, and part 4, the longest section, contains 11 chapters that deal with measurably superior instructional practices for school-age children. Part 5 addresses transition intervention and adult learners, and Part 6 integrates behavior analysis into educational and public policy. Several of the highlighted programs in Parts 3 and 4 deal with disadvantaged students in urban areas. Chapter 10 considers reading instruction for low-income children in an urban area, and Chapter 14 considers the programs of Morningside Academy and Malcolm X College in Chicago (Illinois). Chapter 17 considers the ecobehavioral assessment of bilingual special education and contains remarks on an urban pilot study. Chapter 24 (Part 5) concentrates on high-risk black college students and offers an alternative approach for their success. References follow each paper. (SLD)
