The Development of a Course of Study on Secondary Classroom Management: Part One of a Process.
Bergin, Joyce Williams; Walworth, Margaret
This article reports the process two professors have begun in an effort to develop a course of study for undergraduate teacher education students at Armstrong Atlantic State University (Georgia). From data collected through graduate surveys and other sources, a pilot survey was constructed and administered to students attending six high schools in the Savannah/Chatham County School System (Georgia) in an effort to gather data on student perceptions of disciplinary problems, school safety, and effective teaching practices. A new survey instrument is being developed to be used in conjunction with student and teacher interviews in a data gathering effort believed to be necessary to developing and improving the course over time. It is expected that input from students and teachers in secondary schools will help to develop a course that is more reality based and effective. A practicum experience in a secondary school setting is a component of the current course of study. A follow-up report is projected that will cover the data collected from the student surveys as well as the evolution of the course as changes are made to its contents and format over time. Two appendices contain the secondary classroom management survey along with a cover letter and the course syllabus for "Classroom Management at the Secondary Level." (Author/ND)
