Sharing Good Practice: Prevention and Support Concerning Pupils Presenting Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties.
Lloyd, Gwynedd, Ed.; Munn, Pamela, Ed.
This book is the result of a project to identify and disseminate examples of good practice in providing for children experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties in schools. The focus is on whole-school or classroom approaches to mainstreaming with experience from teachers of preschool to secondary grades. A major theme is providing a high-quality learning experience for special education pupils by integrating them with their fellow students and avoiding the damaging effects of labeling them as disruptive. Educational responses that are beneficial for all pupils are emphasized. Chapters include: (1) "Partnership with Parents" (S. McGhee); (2) "Classroom Management Strategies in a Primary School Class" (R. Russell); (3) "Circle Time" (J. Campbell, J. Dominy); (4)"Raising the Expectations of Parents and Children through Positive Reinforcement" (E. Ferrie); (5) "Primary-Secondary Transition Programme: A Better Chance of Success" (P. Sharp); (6) "Support for Learning across the Curriculum" (R. McDonald); (7) "Developing a Whole School Policy for Behaviour Support" (M. Fleming); (8) "The Role and Work of a Behaviour Support Unit" (K. Young); (9) "Networking for Behaviour Support Teachers" (J. Thomson, C. Wilson). (EMK)
