Curriculum Instruction Practices for Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. From the Second CCBD Mini-Library Series: Successful Interventions for the 21st Century.
Schmid, Rex E., Ed.; Evans, William, Ed.
This monograph presents some of the current developments in curriculum and instruction for students with emotional/behavioral disorders. After an introductory chapter, Chapter 2, "Multicultural Education and Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders" (Xu Di, Susan Stewart, and Martha Lisner), discusses how teachers can use culturally sensitive methods and strategies when working with a student population that is both culturally diverse and has emotional and behavioral disorders. Chapter 3, "Functional Assessment and Support Plans" (Shanna Hagan and George Sugai), explores how educational professionals can use functional assessment to identify the purposes served by the inappropriate behavior of students with emotional/behavioral disorders and design behavior-support plans. Chapter 4, "Guidelines for Providing Access to the Internet" (Rick Smith), describes how a district used the Internet as a strategy for increasing school performances and lowering the dropout rate. Chapter 5, "Instructional Design and Videodisk Technology" (Mack D. Burke, Gail Coulter, and Bonnie Grossen), identifies features of instructional design that accommodate the needs of students who are academically unsuccessful and discusses the use of videodisk instruction to improve performance. Chapter 6, "The TABS Program: A School-Wide Approach for Children and Youth with Behavioral Problems" (Rex E. Schmid), describes an elementary intervention program for students who chronically disrupt classroom instruction and learning. (Contains 66 references.) (CR)
