The purpose of this study was to discover new ways of assisting students that have behavioral problems and the teachers of those students.
The subjects in this study were four teachers and their first and second grade students. The teachers were three females and one male. Two of the female teachers teach first grade and the others teach second grade.
The research tool used in this study was a questionnaire. The questionnaire was developed to gain knowledge about the effectiveness of the discipline strategies. The questions were used to collect general information about the respondent and the discipline strategies.
The major findings in this study were how the teachers were able to use the strategies in their classrooms to create positive outcomes. The teachers implemented individual behavior plans to reduce and eliminate discipline problems.
