Student Work Habits: An Educational Imperative.
Williams, Robert L.; Oh, Eun Jung
Major problems in the American workforce are absenteeism, tardiness, disorganization, off-task behavior, and limited teamwork. Attacking such problems by promoting effective work habits in schools should be an educational priority, with teachers, counselors, and school psychologists all playing a role in the process. Student work habits that can contribute to a more effective and efficient work force are regular school attendance; the punctual accomplishment of work task; orderly management of one's school materials; persistence in on task behavior; openness to supervision; and productive teamwork. Intervention strategies that promote these work patterns include teacher modeling of effective work habits; a classroom setting conducive to good work habits; reinforcement of sound work habits; and systematic assessment of student work habits. Future studies must consider whether work habits learned in school transfer to the adult workplace. (Contains 61 references.) (Author/JDM)
