Disruptive Behavior in the Bilingual Child as a Function of Teacher Training.
Neuburger, Wayne F.; Pettibone, Timothy J.
Videotapes were used to determine disruptive versus relevant student behavior exhibited (1) with teachers trained under the Oral Language Program (OLP) implemented by the Southwest Cooperative Educational Laboratory and (2) with non-OLP teachers. Five categories of disruptive behaviors--gross motor, noise making, verbalization, orienting, and aggression--were identified. Data collection consisted of observing a child's behavior for 2 minutes. OLP-trained teachers elicited fewer gross motor and noise making behaviors from students. Non-OLP-trained teachers elicited fewer verbalization, orienting, and aggression behaviors. That different patterns of student responses resulting may have been due to teacher reinforcement since close physical distance is stressed in OLP training. (JH)
