A Bus Behavioral Modification Plan for Grades K-5. A Practicum Report.
A motivational plan to reduce bus discipline referrals in a K-5 elementary school is presented in this practicum paper. Methodology involved observation of student behavior on 13 buses, pre- and post-tests administered to third- through fifth-graders, and document analysis of student misconduct citations and bus conduct reports. Referral statistics for discipline, safety violations, and neatness were compared with those from the same time period in 1990. Outcomes included a significant reduction in student referrals, an increase in the number of students scoring 70 percent on the post-test (from 109 to 287), and favorable driver reports on the plan's effectiveness. Appendices contain the motivational plan, a statistics worksheet, the target elementary school supplement, student and driver questionnaires, and a 1990-91 statistical analysis. (16 references) (LMI)
