Murphy, H. Allen; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v16 n1 p29-35 Spr 1983
The research focuses on the inappropriate, largely aggressive, behaviors of 344 K-2 children assigned to a playground prior to the beginning of the school day. It was found that games, rope jumping, and foot racing, along with an infrequently used time-out procedure, significantly reduced the frequency of inappropriate incidents. (Author)
