    • Behind the Schoolhouse Door: Eight Skills Every Teacher Should Have. Latham, Glenn

      This guide describes eight skills every teacher should learn that were derived from a study of 252 schools in 50 states, American territories and protectorates, and 14 foreign countries over a 16-year period (1980-1996). Interviews were conducted with 769 teachers, 253 administrators, and 23 other school personnel. The skills include:
      (1) the ability to teach expectations;
      (2) the ability to get and keep students on task;
      (3) the ability to maintain a high rate of positive teacher-to-pupil interactions (including ensuring positive interactions with students who have developmental delays);
      (4) the ability to respond noncoercively to inappropriate behavior that is consequential; (5) the ability to maintain a high rate of risk-free student response opportunities;
      (6) the ability to serve problem-behavior students in the primary learning environment; (7) the ability to avoid being trapped into responses (criticism, sarcasm, threats, questioning, logic, arguing, force, and despair); and
      (8) the ability to manage behavior "scientifically."
      Along with the description of each skill is an explanation of why teachers need to learn the specific skill and a discussion of supporting research findings and observations.
