JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT , July 2004 properly! CHAPTER I: INTRODUCTION Problem Statement A.
The problem is that some students disrupt their classrooms through various actions. 1. These disruptions reduce the opportunity for all students to learn. 2. Experience suggests that the same
students are consistently involved in disruptive behaviors. 3. Reading suggests that school-wide classroom management programs are successful in minimizing disruptions, thereby enhancing the learning environment for all students. Problem Some
Junior High School students are disruptive in their classrooms. Goal Significantly reduce student disruptions in classrooms. Evidence 1. Student disruptions are identified as speaking out of turn, asking inappropriate questions,
engaging in peer conversations instead of listing to the teachers instructions, deliberately dropping books or other materials, getting out of ones seat, deliberately bumping into others when moving from one
area to another, making remarks, laughing or giggling when there is nothing funny. 2. A survey of teachers at one junior high school will be conducted to determine the actual

with learning disabilities are distractible. They may or may not be responsible for the majority of the disruptions. 3. Teachers are not consistent in implementing their discipline processes, if they
have one. Solutions 1. Design, develop and implement a school-wide classroom management program specifically to reduce student disruptions. 2. Make adjustments for students with special needs. B. A
Questionnaire will be used to survey each teacher in the school for the purpose of obtaining information about the problem. 1. The survey will validate the seriousness of the
