Summary

The short manual designed for teachers of the handicapped focuses on management of individual behavior in the classroom and briefly explains principles of behavior change. Five basic steps in management are explained to be specification of problem behavior, counting the occurrence of the problem behavior, changing the problem behavior by formulating a plan, re-planning if necessary, and maintaining the appropriate behavior. Provision of appropriate consequences, reward or punishment, is then discussed. Reward and punishment are defined, and clarifying guidelines and comments are made concerning them. Common problems of implementation are then anticipated, followed by suggested solutions. A typical situation of classroom misbehavior is described in short, dramatic form to demonstrate the behavior principles. Mention is then made of a video tape presentation that illustrates the basic steps of the management process as the teacher would use them. A copy of the video tape is said to be available through the Iowa Regional Educational Media Centers. (CB)
