"This edited volume, developed to address the need of educators looking for alternatives to the current paradigm of behaviorism, includes chapters by many of today's leaders in the classroom management, research and development fields. Coverage is designed to examine the philosophical underpinnings of behaviorism, and show why the change is needed. The authors provide a rationale for alternatives to behaviorism as a classroom management philosophy, and include models of best practices based on research findings as well as practice."--Jacket.
