Violent Children in Today's Schools: A Literary Review and a Behavior Management Plan for Administrators.
Moore, Paula; Karr-Kidwell, PJ
This paper presents a relevant literary review and then develops a behavior-management program within schools encompassing social-skills training for all children. Both the literary review and this program can be used to educate administrators, educators, parents, and students about behaviors and warning signs associated with violent children. The paper also explores the factors contributing to violent behavior in children, particularly in relation to effective behavior-management programs. The training incorporates 16 basic social skills. Following instructions, accepting "no" for an answer, greeting others, and introducing yourself are a few of the skills to be taught. Another factor is developing goals. Students, along with parents, teachers, and administrators, develop goals that they want to attain by being involved in the program. Appendixes contain guidelines for CROSSINGS (Creating Real Opportunities for Student Success: Navigating Gainsville Schools). CROSSINGS is a behavior-management program that provides "Boys Town" social-skills training to at-risk students who are struggling with success in school or in personal areas. The program first identifies the needs of each student, then develops strategies for student success. It supports the student during the process of change, while providing mentors to support the student during and after change. Parents are involved in achieving success, while retraining and followup are provided after the completion of the program. (Contains 59 references.) Appended are materials from "Crossings, Bridging the Gap to Success." (DFR)
