Educating Oppositional and Defiant Children.
Hall, Philip S.; Hall, Nancy D.
This guide to teaching children with oppositional and defiant behaviors presents key concepts and techniques illustrated by stories based on actual classroom cases. The guide is based on the principle that the teacher's own behavior can positively influence the student's reactions and offers practical advice on what approaches work and do not work. It is intended to teach readers how to: identify risk factors that can trigger antisocial behavior; engineer the classroom environment, routines, and tasks to increase success; interact in ways that promote positive behavior; temporarily remove a disruptive child from the classroom while preserving the child's dignity; work with the child's parents to find the appropriate special education services; guide parents toward effective training programs; and develop a school culture with the values and beliefs to nurture oppositional students. Throughout the book key concepts are highlighted. A glossary is also provided. (Contains 160 references.) (DB)
