Interventions for Academic and Behavior Problems II: Preventive and Remedial Approaches.
Shinn, Mark R., Ed.; Walker, Hill M., Ed.; Stoner, Gary, Ed.
This volume contains information needed for the practice of school psychology. It discusses training and knowledge for school psychologists on how to apply the intervention skills needed to solve problems. The interventions point to the fact that school psychology is changing its focus to one of problem solving in schools. This collection serves as a resource for trainers of school psychologists and for those practicing in the field. Chapters 1 through 10 deal with goals for effective schools, prevention of violence, school safety, and strategies for remediating basic skill deficits, including reading. Chapters 11 through 20 include selecting and evaluating classroom interventions; strategies to improve safety; teaching social skills to high-risk students; early childhood education; and building a beginning reading program. Chapters 21 through 30 cover curriculum issues such as mathematics achievement; intervention for struggling writers; peer tutoring; remedial interventions for students with reading problems; and curriculum-based collaborations in schools. Chapters 31 through 38 look at specific student problems such as depression; attention problems; emotional difficulties; aggression and vandalism; along with the intervention and crisis management of these problems. (Contains 53 tables, 84 figures, and over 1,800 references.) (JDM)
