Abstract:   (753 Views)
The paper describes an attempt over one year to improve the behaviour of disadvantaged and disruptive children in school, in a village in South Taiwan. We applied the qualitative research method, using the action study technique, and studied the influence of peer group, modelling. The subjects were 24 children aged between 9 and 10 years (4th grade), and divided into six groups. A program of progressive group activities was organized. At the end of the year there was appraisal including feedback from parents, teachers, and students themselves. The results showed that disruptive students had become calmer and showed more integration into their peer group and families. This was effected without segregating them, but rather by integrating them within small groups.
