Classroom Management Affects Literacy Development of Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders
Garwood, Justin D.; Vernon-Feagans, Lynne
Exceptional Children, v83 n2 p123-142 Jan 2017
Many children with behavior problems perform poorly academically and can disrupt regular classroom instruction. Although good classroom management strategies can benefit children with behavior problems, it is not clear whether these students need consistently good classroom management across the early elementary school years to improve their academic performance. The current study examined the quality of classroom management from kindergarten through third grade experienced by children who were rated as exhibiting symptoms of emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) in the classroom to understand the cumulative effects in relationship to third-grade reading performance. Results indicated that higher-quality classroom management in the first 4 years of school was significantly related to higher scores on standardized measures of reading achievement in third grade for boys exhibiting EBD, but girls exhibiting EBD appeared unaffected by the quality of teachers' classroom management during this same time. Practitioner implications and future research needs are discussed.
