Classroom Discipline Recommendations for the Vocational Classroom.
Legacy, James W.
Illinois high school vocational teachers, administrators, high school vocational students, and student teachers were surveyed to select from a list of 10 teacher courses of action the most appropriate remedy for 46 typical student-discipline problems. Questionnaire data were obtained from 36 teachers and administrators and 532 high school students. Teachers, administrators, and students agreed on the appropriate course of action for 35 classroom disturbances and disagreed 11 times. It was recommended that vocational teacher preparation programs lend greater emphasis within methods classes to the area of classroom management and discipline procedures. (Four tables are appended: rank order listing of the discipline "courses of action" by intervals, recommended frequency use of 10 classroom discipline actions, frequency of use of 10 classroom discipline courses of action, and comparison of educator and student responses to discipline actions for 46 classroom behaviors in vocational classrooms.)
