Behaviour Management in Schools: Summary Overview.
Ledez, John
Numerous approaches to behavior management in schools have been offered but many of these rely on strategies or procedures. A different kind of approach, which focuses on essential principles, is offered here. It includes a range of suggestions, but application of its principles depends on the particular school and community. The position adopted here is that human functioning is too complex to be governed by a few definite rules--that in any situation, those who make decisions about organization, procedures, and arrangements must constantly monitor and think about what is happening and then make the appropriate adjustments. The plan opens with an overview of how to conceptualize behavior problems, followed by the importance of the respect for authority. It explores the nature of respect, implications of the respect for authority, and the mix of authority and autonomy. The process is based on four processes--teaching, counseling, supervision, and control--which, together, help students develop respect for the authority structure. It explores the methods of teaching, ways to teach good behavior, and provides a detailed explanation of the importance of control. The program stresses the centrality of the relationship between the representatives of authority and the subordinates. (RJM)
