Enhancing Self-Respect: A Challenge for Teachers of Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. From the Second CCBD Mini-Library Series: Successful Interventions for the 21st Century.
This monograph offers service providers a variety of interventions that can be used to develop and enhance self-respect in students with emotional and behavioral disorders. After an introductory chapter, Chapter 2, "What is Self-Respect?," discusses the definition of self-respect, how self-respect develops (a developmental table is presented), and illustrates the relationship between self-respect and education. Chapter 3, "Peer Tutoring Interventions," describes the different types of peer tutoring and how cross-age peer tutoring can be used to develop and enhance healthy self-respect in children and youth. Strategies for developing and implementing a cross-age tutoring program are provided. Chapter 4, "Service Learning," highlights the integration of community service with academic skills and structured reflection activities to develop students' self-respect. Steps for developing and implementing a service-learning program are provided, including identifying the needs of the community; analyzing the problem; planning the project; training students; and implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the program. A list of standards for service learning programs and a list of questions for service-learning community contacts are also provided. Chapter 5, "Evaluating Interventions," presents a model which can be used by service providers to evaluate the impact of their interventions systematically. (Contains 50 references.) (CR)
