In the decade preceeding the original publication of this book the discipline of behaviour analysis was becoming increasingly influential in educational circles, but many of the practices we now take for granted were still being pioneered. This book considers the place of behaviour analysis in education and describes work on behavioural classroom management in British schools. Four further chapters consider the behavioural approach to teaching in both primary and secondary schools in terms of tutoring at home and for use with emotionally disturbed children. The book concludes with chapters on the role of theory in and an ethical appraisal of behavioural methods.
