Classroom discipline is a major concern to teachers, administrators, and the public. This article addresses causes, prevention, and intervention techniques for discipline problems. Causes of discipline problems include a lack of interest in the program, anger, worry, fear, shame, embarrassment, or frustration relating to a physical impairment or learning disability. Effective planning for classroom instruction can help decrease discipline problems. When problems do occur, the teacher should act quickly, be fair and consistent, provide the student with a written plan, and expect a change in behavior.
