Effective ways of dealing with discipline problems when teaching adolescent learners

Title variants
Languages of publication
“As in other social settings, every classroom will have a few students who will choose not to involve themselves in classroom activities and, instead, be disruptive forces”. Managing disruptive behavior calls for a special set of techniques and ways to change it, at least during the time that the student is in school (Arends1991:170-172). The aim of this paper is to discover whether teachers employ multifarious techniques and strategies while dealing with discipline problems and how these techniques work in the classroom context.
