Advance Organizers in Secondary Special Education Resource Classrooms: Effects on Student Engagement Behaviors
King, Lisa
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
Student engagement and appropriate behaviors are essential for effective instruction in secondary special education classrooms. Research suggests that proactive engagement strategies and interventions can have a greater effect on overall classroom behaviors than negative consequences. A single case experiment measured the effects of "expository advance organizers" on academically engaged behavior, respectful behavior, and disruptive behavior in the special education self-contained resource classroom. The single-case A-B-A-B design for this study evaluates these components of student engagement during academic instruction over a four-week period. Three secondary special education small-group resource Language Arts classes from a Northeast Georgia high school comprised the subject for this study. The "Direct Behavior Rating (DBR) Form: 3 Standard Behaviors" instrument was used to collect and analyze data. Hypotheses stated that the expository advance organizer strategy has an impact on student academic engagement behaviors, student respectful behaviors and student disruptive behaviors in the special education resource classroom.
