Effects of a Classwide Teacher-Implemented Program to Promote Preschooler Compliance
Beaulieu, Lauren; Hanley, Gregory P.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v47 n3 p594-599 Fall 2014
We used a multiple baseline design across skills to evaluate the effects of a program to teach a classroom of children to respond to their name and a group call (i.e., precursors) as well as to peer mediate these precursors to promote compliance with a variety of multistep instructions. Teachers taught these skills via classwide behavior skills training and a lottery-based reward contingency. Results showed that precursors to compliance, peer mediation, and compliance increased as a function of classwide teaching, and the teachers found the procedures and their effects to be highly acceptable.
