A Practical Plan for Managing the Behavior of Students with Disabilities in General Physical Education
Lavay, Barry; French, Ron; Henderson, Hester
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n2 p42-48 Feb 2007
With the inclusion of students identified as at-risk or with serious behavior problems in general physical education, behavior management has become ever more challenging. A positive behavior-management plan that fosters behavior changes through support and intervention, rather than punishment used to control students, can prove effective. Physical educators need to identify, observe, and analyze the student behaviors they wish to prevent or develop; design and implement a plan, customized to reflect their personal philosophy on behavior management, their goals, and the characteristics and needs of their students; and evaluate the intervention to determine its effectiveness.
