Management of classroom behaviors: Perceived readiness of education interns

Dennis Garland, Krista Vince Garland, Eleazar Vasquez

Abstract


Education students at a large research university participated in internships during their final semesters as part of their respective programs of study as a capstone experience. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used to collect data on the perceptions of interns’ readiness and knowledge of evidence-based practices to manage classroom behaviors for students with exceptionalities in inclusive settings. Emergent themes include general feeling of readiness to manage classroom behaviors. However, a desire for earlier access to actual classroom experiences was also expressed, as was the desire for greater instruction in evidence-based practices to manage behaviors for students with exceptionalities.
