To Praise And Ignore Classroom Behaviors, Or To Praise And Punish Classroom Behaviors: That Is The Question, Luther M. Kindall Dec 1973

To Praise And Ignore Classroom Behaviors, Or To Praise And Punish Classroom Behaviors: That Is The Question, Luther M. Kindall

Doctoral Dissertations

The present study involved an experimental analysis of behavior in which the relative efficacy of two behavioral management strategies and their functional relationship to three dependent behaviors (appropriate, time-off-task, and disruptive) were examined. One strategy involved verbally praising appropriate behaviors while concomitantly ignoring disruptive behaviors. The other strategy involved verbally praising appropriate behaviors while concomitantly softly reprimanding disruptive behaviors. The study also incorporated two adjunct investigations. These involved examining the rates of acceleration and deceleration of appropriate and disruptive behaviors during treatment and reversal phases, and examining the teacher's reactions to the two strategies.

Systematic Human Relations Training And Resident Assistant Effectiveness, William Foster Hayes Jr. Aug 1973

Systematic Human Relations Training And Resident Assistant Effectiveness, William Foster Hayes Jr.

Masters Theses

Systematic human relations training has been shown to be an effective method for training both by lay and professional counselors. However, its usefulness for resident assistants in a residence hall setting has been sparsely documented.

The purpose of this study is twofold: (1) to reaffirm existing evidence that a systematic human relations training program can make a group of resident assistants more effective helper and (2) to determine whether this change in effectiveness can be detected in the immediate environment for the resident assistant, that being his res residents and supervisor. In order to establish the first objective, resident assistants ...


The Legal Status Of The Virginia High School Principal In Maintaining Pupil Discipline, Barry Jason Last Aug 1973

The Legal Status Of The Virginia High School Principal In Maintaining Pupil Discipline, Barry Jason Last

In comparing the questionnaires received from Virginia principals with a case law study of pupil control decisions, the question of legal limitations on the principal's authority may be resolved. Within the question of limita- tions, the determination of the legal points which either are not known or not understood by Virginia high school administrators can also be ascertained. As ...


The Relation Of Visual Fixation And Pursuit To Posture In Four Month Infants, Nancy M. Fieber Aug 1973

The Relation Of Visual Fixation And Pursuit To Posture In Four Month Infants, Nancy M. Fieber

Student Work

The frozen posture of a young child as he visually attends to something of interest, or the very young infantTs wide open eyes and mouth as he fixes on a stimulus, illustrate dramatically the close relationship between the visual system and the total action system. The two appear to be inseparable and interdependent.

When vision is impaired, control of posture may be impaired as evidenced by the typical delay in head righting in prone and all-fours postures of the blind infant. (Gesell and Amatruda, 1941; Gesell et al, 1949) In other children with severe visual impairment a peculiar head posture ...
