Abstract:

THE PROJECT TESTS THE MERIT AND FEASIBILITY OF USING INTER- ACTIVE VIDEODISCS TO TRAIN TEACHERS, AND SUPPORT PERSONNEL FOR BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT IN THE CLASSROOM AND TO DIRECTLY TRAIN STUDENTS AND PARENTS FOR BEHAVIORAL CONTROL. CONTROL-LING STUDENT BEHAVIOR IS OF THE HIGHEST PRIORITY IN MOST SCHOOLS. THE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS ENDORSED THIS PROJECT AND IS SUPPORTING BOTH PRODUCTION AND TESTING STUDENTS CANNOT LEARN WHEN THEY OR THEIR CLASSMATES ARE DISRUPTIVE. EXPERIENCED CONSULTANTS/TRAINERS CAN TEACH AP- PROPRIATE BEHAVIORAL MANAGEMENT SKILLS TO INEXPERIENCED OR INEFFECTIVE TEACHERS. SUCH TRAINING IS TIME-CONSUMING AND NOT EXTENDABLE FOR DIRECT USE WITH PARENTS AND STUDENTS. THEINTERACTIVE VIDEO FORMAT PROVIDES A POSSIBLE SOLUTION. MASTER TEACHERS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED WHO DEMONSTRATE SUPERI-OR BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT SKILLS. ACTUAL AND SIMULATED ABER- RANT BEHAVIOR EPISODES WILL BE VIDEOTAPED IN THEIR CLASS- ROOMS, SUPPLEMENTED WITH AN AUDIO TRACK OF ANALYSES AND IN- STRUCTIONAL INFORMATION, AND EMBEDDED IN AN INTERACTIVE PROGRAM. TRAINEES CAN THEN IDENTIFY ABERRANT BEHAVIOR CHOOSEAPPROPRIATE INTERVENTION POINTS, SELECT POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS AND BE TESTED ON COMPREHENSION, DECISON-MAKING AND CONFI- DENCE OF BEHAVIOR CONTROL.
