Ain't Misbehavin'. Managing Disruptive Behavior.
Mitchell, Carole; Pride, Douglas; Howard, Lance; Pride, Brenda
This manual was developed to help educators, especially in further education colleges in Britain, to develop a whole-college approach to managing disruptive behavior in students and to serve as a resource for disciplinary policy and staff development. The manual is organized in eight chapters. The first chapter explores the background to the issues surrounding disruptive behavior in postsecondary education; in chapter 2 it outlines the premises of the research project that is the foundation for which the manual is based. Chapter 3 provides a framework for identifying and analyzing the types and reasons for problem behavior; chapter 4 presents the model that has been adopted in this research to achieve a whole-college approach. In chapter 5, the manual offers a self-assessment schedule to audit existing behavior management policies, systems, and delivery methods and from there plan an agenda for action (presented in chapter 6). Chapter 7 offers guidance and interpretation of the legal issues arising from disruptive behavior and the rights and responsibilities of college staff. The manual concludes with a section on future directions, a checklist of performance indicators relating to each level of the whole-college model, and a list of recommendations. A reference list and bibliography contain 134 citations. Fourteen appendixes provide research documents and college policies. (KC)
