Fostering Social Responsibility. Fastback 428.
This fastback outlines an approach to foster social responsibility in the classroom while simultaneously handling disruptive behavior simply and easily. The strategy that is considered will aid in establishing and maintaining a non-coercive, trusting environment, the first requirement of a quality classroom. Following the introduction, the fastback presents a section on "Theory and Clarifications" (subdivided into Curriculum, Instruction, Classroom Management, and Discipline; Guidance and Counseling; and Developing Students' Social Skills) and a section on "The Social Development Program" (subdivided into Vocabulary and Concepts; Teaching the Concepts; Checking for Understanding; Using Guided Choices; and Self-Diagnostic Referral). The fastback's "Conclusion" enumerates the ways in which the strategy used in this social development program differs from other approaches. Contains a 35-item resource list. (BT)
