Quintero Corzo, Josefina; Ramírez Contreras, Odilia
PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, v13 n2 p59-72 Oct 2011
Complying with school regulations and teachers' instructions is a basic principle of an excellent class; both novice and experienced teachers face challenging situations when getting into real classrooms, especially those related to classroom management. There are various reasons that explain discipline problems in public schools, as well as varied strategies beginning teachers create and try when coping with those challenges. This article reports an action research study on how this methodology helped a group of teacher-trainees overcome indiscipline in English as a foreign language classrooms at public schools, and align with professional development initiatives which focus on reflection and decisionmaking processes that the new Colombian policies demand from new teachers seeking a higher quality of education.
