Managing Unmanageable Students: Practical Solutions for Administrators.
McEwan, Elaine K.; Damer, Mary
This book offers positive and productive ways to deal with problem children, whether they are in elementary, middle, or high school. These students fall into the "unmanageable" category--those who take up the administrator's time, and undermine their effectiveness as an instructional leader. Chapters supply the tools needed to serve as a behavior-management consultant to the staff; help principals understand the relationship between effective instruction and student behavior; assist administrators in observing and counseling teachers in how to avoid no-win encounters with students; provide principals with the forms need for observing student behavior, completing a Functional Behavioral Assessment, and structuring workable interventions; unleash the power of school teams in managing unmanageable students; and increase effectiveness as an instructional leader. Appendices contain references tools for principals, teachers, and parents. (DFR)
