Abstract : An integrated set of summer workshops was conducted for elementary teachers in the River Rouge, Michigan School District, to introduce them to, and provide practice in, selected innovative techniques for the management of classroom behavior and instructional materials. The three teacher workshops dealt with development and use of instructional objectives stated in performance terms, implementation of the concepts of learning modulus and mastery tests, and application of contingency management techniques for controlling student behavior in the classroom. Additional workshops were conducted for administrative and supervisory personnel, to enable them to provide knowledgable support to the teachers in implementing the new techniques during the school year. A follow-on program will assist the teachers in implementation and evaluate the effectiveness of the innovative techniques in the classroom. (Author)
