Tools for Getting Along. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Tools for Getting Along" is a 26-lesson curriculum designed to help upper elementary school teachers establish a positive, cooperative classroom atmosphere. Lessons are intended to reduce disruptive and aggressive behavior by helping students develop anger management skills. Students use problem-solving steps to generate, implement, and evaluate solutions to problems. The curriculum incorporates direct instruction, modeling, guided practice, independent practice, and skill generalization. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) identified four studies of "Tools for Getting Along" published or released between 1989 and 2012 that focus on children classified as having an emotional disturbance (or children at risk for classification). One study is within the scope of the Children Classified as Having an Emotional Disturbance review protocol but does not meet WWC evidence standards. This study was a randomized controlled trial in which differential attrition cannot be determined, and the intervention and comparison groups were not shown to be equivalent at baseline. One study is out of the scope of the Children Classified as Having an Emotional Disturbance review protocol because it does not use a sample aligned with the protocol. Two studies are out of the scope of the Children Classified as Having an Emotional Disturbance review protocol because they are not primary analyses of the effectiveness of an intervention. A glossary of terms is included. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
